I am going to have very limited internet access for the next few weeks.
Change is in my life.
As I make these changes, along with a multitude of other things, the following questions will also, be uppermost in my mind.
If you had no financial worries:
- Where would you live?
- How would you be spending your time?
- Whom would you be spending your time with?
In regard to personal happiness, and serenity:
- When have you been truly happy and why?
- What were you doing?
- What feelings did it engender?
And one more series of thoughts on friendship, taken from my daily OM.
Friends are the family we've chosen for ourselves, we can't help but feel a sense of kinship with these people who so enrich our lives. We may be drawn to each other by our similarities, but we help each other learn and grow through our differences. Think of what you appreciate about your friends and write these descriptions down on a piece of paper. Then reread the list and apply it to yourself. Sometimes it is much easier to appreciate the beauty in others than it is to see it in ourselves. And since like attracts like, by showing your love and affection for the friends that support you and share life's experiences with you, you acknowledge the beauty of your own reflection.
Some friends may be in our lives for only a short time before our paths take different directions. We may cross paths again, or perhaps we served our highest purpose in each others' lives. Others may be by our side over several years or decades. They may be closer to us in some ways than our blood relations or our spouses. We can express our love for them by a note, a look, a word of thanks whispered to the breeze—even a loving thought will be felt at some level. By acknowledging those who have walked beside you through life today, you show your gratitude to them and to the universe for providing you with such loving support.
