Thought for the Weekend

"How many of us go through our days parched and empty, thirsting after happiness, when we're really standing knee-deep in the river of abundance?" - Sarah Ban Breathnach

I like this quote because it reminds me to look for the good in life. When things aren't going well it's easy to concentrate only on the stressful or negative aspects of our day, week, month or even life. I've found that my mood almost instantly lifts when I don't allow the not so great occurances to overshadow the good that's always there waiting to be noticed.

If your new at this concept try making it a habit to take time to simply look back over your day and identify even one good thing that happened. It could be something someone said to you, a sunrise or sunset you enjoyed, even the fact that you were first in line to check out when you stopped at the grocery store. The more you practice the better you will get at noticing these small but important occurances and the more you notice the more rich your life will feel.

Seriously! Try it and see for yourself.
