Some of these friends think I am not really doing anything if I am not walking around with a sign. I love our signmaking enlighteners, but even if I am not walking with them, I am indeed doing something. I am choosing to direct my thoughts, which is no small nor insignificant action.
We know from all the various goalsetting workshops over the years, especially in business, that postitive attitude absolutely contributes to the results that we get.
Worry is a misuse of imagination, and is more likely to result in getting what is unwanted. One could say that worrying is tantamount to casting a vote for the other guy.
Therefore, I make my choices carefully:
I choose to avoid sloppy thinking, i.e., directing too much thought to what I do not want.
I choose to put my happiest and most voluminous thoughts on those things I wish to see come to pass.
I choose to be joyfully open to surprises which support my desires.
I choose to remember that some statements or events, especially those which seem to be odd within their contexts, and elusive in meaning, may make complete sense later. Therefore I choose to suspend judgement on people and things I do not fully understand in the moment, as I continue to collect data.
I choose to remember that, as evidenced in my own past experience, exciting and supportive events which had been unforeseen can transpire quickly, changing my whole landscape in a twinkling of an eye.
In this election cycle, I have seen the awakening of the American Revolutionary Spirit such as I have never seen before in my lifetime. Nor am I aware of this volume of excitement and intention happening at any time in our history since the first American Revolution. And I am thrilled to my bones about that! Our country was founded on exactly the premises which will benefit us most, now.
And if there is any truth to the cliche, "the darkest hour is just before the dawn," then I say, "Bring it on, baby. We are SO there!"
