This is a great question to shift your perspective.
I came across a great blog this week which gave me a super image to tie this question to. Glennon Doyle Melton shared how she puts on her perspectacles to see a situation in a new light.
When you are choosing to live a divine life, these are fabulous tools to have in your designer bag.
Here are a couple more.
- When you wake up in the morning take a few moments to create your preferred reality for the day. Include the intention to smile a lot
- As you go about your day look for things that will make you smile and feel connected to the world around you. there is always a happy and often a humorous perspective that can be found in any situation.
I smile when I see a child intently fascinated by something on the ground that has captured their attention.
I smile and my heart expands as I drive by gardens with flowers blooming in multi colours and I notice how bright and enhanced all of the colours are when I choose to see them as divine creations.
I smile when I see the wind blowing through the leaves when moments before it all been calm. I know the divine sentient beings of nature are giving me a sign to be particularly aware of the events or messages that are present in that moment.
I can wonder what would make a moment fun if for some unusual reason I am in a hurry (having forgotten that I can play with time) and someone is being very slow in the line ahead. The ideas that pop are sure to bring a smile to my face.
And when I visit my 95 yr old father in his care facility, and see him tired and worn by increasingly frequent phantom pain in both his amputated legs, lifting his shoulders to breathe, and becoming more forgetful with each visit, I can find a reason to smile and share fun stories. He carries on with an amazing positive attitude that takes it in stride with no fuss. I smile when I hold his hands and look deeply into his divine soul and know the joy of expressing our love for each other and the opportunity of being together in a loving moment. I am so grateful because until he went into a care facility we so rarely shared that verbally. That smile stays on my face and in my expanded heart for a long time.
