To be gratefulTo be thankful
What does this mean for you?Instead of feeling disheartened about yourself and the world we live in, how much would your outlook on life change if you felt appreciative for the positive influences surrounding us? These are the things that keep the world moving forward, the things that inspire us to change, and the things that educate our minds in ways that are otherwise difficult to connect with.
My mother's response was entirely positive, until validly stating 'But you don't have enough time Tan.', to which I responded 'There is only enough time as I think there is', meaning that if I tell my mind that there is not enough time, of course I will not find the time. The preconceived belief that time is not there will overrule the reality. Alternatively, if the belief is created that yes, there is indeed enough time for me to dedicate a small number of hours a week to learning and educating myself in this area; low and behold, I will find time. Belief is a powerful notion. It may all sound a little like 'airy fairy nonsense' but I suppose until trying it out, there is no way of fully knowing its truth. We have enough time as we allow there to be. To think that we don't is merely an illusion of the mind.
So, today I am grateful.
