Looking for and finding, the good in everything, takes practice. And when you do, you will discover the best in yourself.
This topic was suggested to me to write about by my friend Wynnie.
One of the publications she subscribes to recently talked about this.
First, I believe you need to continually practice looking for the good in people and things.
Sometimes it is hard to see the good in people and situations that aren’t in alignment with who you are.
As a result, you tend to focus on what it is you don’t like in your life. Now, that’s not such a bad thing.
Because, when you know what it is you don’t like, you can then look for what it is you do like or want in your life.
Because when you are aware of what it is you want, you can begin to change the focus to the good. Then perhaps begin to feel what it would be like to have it.
There is power in feeling as if whatever it is you would like to have in your life, is already there.
For example, if it’s a new car you would like, take time each day to imagine what it is like to sit in and drive that new car. What color and make is it? What does the new car smell like? Can you smell the new leather?
You can even say out loud, “I would like to feel the feelings of owning a new car”.
Similarly, you can do this exercise with anything. A new love in your life, a better relationship, better health. Simply take a few moments often, to feel and imagine what it would be like.
Take it a step further. Write down what it is you will feel as you have whatever or whomever it is.
Furthermore, as you begin to look for the good, you are building that muscle for the good, instead of the opposite.
“A belief is only a thought you continue to think”.
The more you think in positive ways, you have a new belief that will better serve you.
You are shifting your vibration to the left side of the Emotional Scale, where your energy is higher. I will include it once again for you to print and look at often, at the bottom of this article.
Consequently, the more you practice all of this, you are finding acceptance for more people, things, and situations, you aren’t able to change.
The change begins inside of you.
Another plus that comes from all of this, you begin to get quieter, feel more at peace.
You begin to listen and tune in. Taking time to meditate, pray, do yoga, and breathe, are just a few things that will help to achieve this more quickly. Also your answers will begin to come to you. Your job is to allow them.
I have written about a book that helped me in the past, called, Radical Forgiveness, by Colin Tipping.
The bottom-line concept in this powerful book is; once you can look at your life as one big lesson, that people and situations are there for reasons, you can then begin to forgive.
Same with looking for and finding the good.
When you look at the bigger picture of life and know that people and things are put in your life to help you, then you find acceptance.
Its up to each of us to find our lessons with every situation and with each person we encounter. Keep looking for the good.
Finally, as you keep practicing many of the things I’m writing about here, you will find it easier to look for and find the good in everything.
As a bonus, you will discover the best in yourself.
My wish is, you will slow down in your life and choose to add these things into your day with consistency.
Love and blessings to you,
