As an avid Disney fan, I believe magic is all around us. That is, if we choose to see it. Perhaps it's not the pixie dust that makes life mystical, but the snippets of human kindness we find daily. The “when things go better than expected” moments. Hugging a friend you haven’t seen in ages. Belly aches come from laughing heartily. The first scrumptious bite of your favorite dish. The brushing breeze against your cheeks when a new season arrives.
Don’t get me wrong. Life can be dark. It can be cruel & unfair. It can also be difficult to understand. Light cannot exist without darkness. As such, yin & yang is a concept that many generations, across cultures, have adapted to find sense in this messy world.
Where you gift your attention- things grow. The good, the bad, and the many in-betweens. If you focus on positive occurrences only, will success come your way? Uh, no. That's delusional thinking that often leads people to the other extreme- deep negativity. What does happen, is when energy is shifted to nurturing things that work, problems are tackled with a growth mindset. The approach to focus on what works and to refine what doesn't is a much more productive one than wallowing in the wrongdoings. Seeking the potential in something allows for us to try, fail, and redesign. It helps us stick to the tenacious process that is required in achieving any form of success.
Where will the energy shift be for you?
