Positive attracts positive

There are amazing things happening in my life! I have been making local connections to show my photography, and it's looking promising! I will keep you posted as I know more.

I have done a lot of reading over the past few years. I have done The Artist's Way several times, I have read The Secret. I have been following positive thinkers on facebook and twitter. And I have noticed (more lately than say, a few months ago) that my mindset has completely shifted. A year ago, or more, I would've said "yes, things are going well for me now, but that will change, and all will go to crap soon. It all balances out." And I fully believed it.

I don't think I believe that any more. Yes, some days won't be as great as others. But I work hard, I am a positive force. And positive attracts positive. Those are the things I now know. That's not to say that there won't be things out of my control in life. What matters though is how I handle it.

A wonderful friend of mine shared a story the other day. She had dealings with an ex. Things didn't go as they had both worked out, and she began fuming. She started thinking about who to call. Her husband. His mom. Friends. She wanted to vent, because things were not right and she had been wronged! However, that didn't feel right to her, and she calmed herself, not calling anyone. Long story short, he soon called her, apologized for the mistake and fixed it. (I did not get permission to share that... that's why it's so vague). She chose not to be a crazy maker. And I believe due to her recent positivity, it all turned around. The best thing? She was able to recognize the positivity. She was completely blessed by it.

I am so lucky to know the people I know at this part of my journey... their energies uplift me and keep me going.

YAY for positivity! It can sometimes be hard to recognize, but I believe that when we do, great things can come of it. I'm thrilled about you showing your stuff locally, and I know that you will do great! Looks like 2010 will truly be an amazing year. :)

Robyn, thank you for sharing. Everyday you bring a simple life lesson to the surface for all to ponder. It's so refreshing to step back from ourselves and consciencely view our lives and our reactions to it and know that our fate is up to us.

Wow, I wish I could become one of those people, I'm kinda how you were a year ago I guess, but it's to be expected with settling in. I'm so glad you're getting out there with your art!

Robyn - I live my life this way ~90% of the time, and I totally believe in this. It's that last 10%....sometimes it's HARD to be positive when things aren't going well. SO thanks for the reminder!
