Every once in a while I have one of those days that makes me feel so lucky. Lucky to be where I am, lucky to be in good health, lucky to have the freedom to go to Disneyland when I want to. Ok, I’m extremely lucky to have that last one, but I don’t take it for granted. I feel like I do some of my best dreaming and thinking while sitting in front of that castle. My hair stands on end from just entering the Esplanade. It brings a small tear to my eye when I walk through the turnstiles of the Main Gate. Every. Single. Time. That’s how I know that it is my place.
My point is, when you find “your place”, do everything that you can to either keep on going back to that place, or recreate it in your mind. It’s good for your mind and your soul. I’m not trying to be all “woo woo”, but with the right mind set, you can create anything for yourself. Some things obviously, are harder than others. I have been able to do it for some things in my life though. Other things just take more practice. More positive thinking. More of finding yourself in that right “place” to do our best creative thinking work. I’m not talking about writing or creating art. I’m talking about creating your life and how you want it to be. If you don’t like how something is, figure out a way to change it. But being positive about it is the key. If you keep on creating excuses in your mind then you aren’t mean t to have what you want, or maybe you really don’t want it as much as you think you do. To me, the universe is like a giant slider puzzle and all the pieces are constantly moving around based on the choices that you make. And when they fit together in that special way, oooooh boy. That’s when you feel that luck.
I’ve also found that the more blessings that I count and the more things that I’m extremely grateful for, the easier it is to “create”. Yes, bad things happen to good people, but it’s how we recover from the situation that makes the difference.
Do what makes you happy.
Be who you know you really are.
And you will have the life that you want.
