What if our Facebook updates focused on our opportunities?

American Flag
Yesterday a new American flag replaced a well-worn American Flag.

What if our Facebook updates focused on our opportunities?

If our spotlights and lasers were focused on ourselves, we probably wouldn’t have time to worry about what other people need to change.

Why?

Our time, theoretically, would be consumed with self-improvement.

There wouldn’t be time in our day to worry about other’s (namely politicians on both sides, and in every Country, State, and local government) behavior because we’re (now) so busy transforming ourselves.

Daily writing helps me see this in myself and it’s the primary reason why i continuously write about mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

What we dislike in others is usually a negative blind spot.

What we appreciate in others is usually a positive blind spot.

i work diligently to be more accepting and forgiving of behaviors that tempt me unfavorably.

Also investing in better energy and more consistent and committed acceptance in my “gifts”.

Sort of Not

It’s fascinating how easily we focus on others

USDA
Yesterday morning a car parked on our cul de sac. This is not normal. It is also not normal for someone to exit their vehicle and walk through a neighbor’s yard. PS. The photo came after the blog content below. Fascinating.

 

It’s fascinating how easily we focus on others.

It’s so easy to spot people we think drive worse than us.

But how often do we spot people who drive better than us?

Like, um, never.

Crazy, right?

Do we even care?

Why is that?

Things I Learned Yesterday

Fresh eyes see it right away

Four Florida Sand Hill Cranes in street
Fearless, ignorant, or trusting?

 

Fresh eyes see things differently. And they see the difference without even trying.

Why?

Because to them, it’s obvious.

Last night near bedtime, the 14 year old was getting a rare look at these blog posts. Right away he asked why the photo captions weren’t in the photos like they used to be.

He also said, “They look ugly the way you are doing it.”

Today’s posts are back to the old way.

Three quotes worth internalizing

Inside a large Catholic Church
So many troubled minds in the world

 

So many troubled minds in the world, including ourselves.

Here is how I heal: I see what’s less than optimal in other people, and I find that behavior in myself and work to correct it. Then other people are healed by being around my healing energy. The circle of life. – Heather Hans

A harsh reality?

We must live as we think, otherwise we shall end up by thinking as we have lived. – Paul Bourget

We are in charge of our life.

Live like you mean it. Life is not a dress rehearsal. – jn
