Have you ever heard the saying it’s like watching grass grow? You watch it and nothing seems to happen. You look the next day and again, it still appears to be the same. Day by day you don’t see any progress on the grass growing and then PRESTO, all of a sudden you are a week late in mowing it as it’s gotten so long. You didn’t see the adjustment of height. You didn’t notice it going from 3” to 3.25” to 4” and eventually the height that requires you to get involved, but the change has occurred. I have a small palm plant in my home that I water weekly, sometimes twice a week and it remains the same. It’s in my living room, I see it daily, but look at it a few times a week. One day as I approached the plant to water it, PRESTO, two new palms leaves had sprung!
Living your best life can be that way as well. When you place your attention on happiness, appreciation, and gratitude rather than the how and whys of the outcome, your dreams will appear out of seemingly nowhere. The stress of begging for them to come, doubting their arrival, and the ‘work’ that takes place in creating them will be replaced with grace and gratitude. Your dreams will feel like ‘miracles’ instead of ‘work’.
Affirmation: My love of life grows through appreciation and gratitude.

Let It Grow, ~ Eric Clapton
For the next week, I invite you to let your dreams grow by:
Planting the seeds of living your happiest life by visualizing them. You can be general and plant seeds of love, health, peace, and abundance. Or you can paint the picture on what those would look like showing up in your life while adding on to the end ‘this or something better.’
Nurturing your dreams through appreciation and gratitude. When you appreciate the little things in your life, you allow that to expand into the bigger areas of your life.
Allowing the dream to unfold in the easiest and joyous way for all involved.
Mostly, my wish for you is the knowingness that even when you don’t see your dreams unfolding, that unseen changes are occurring to bring you the best version of what you are focusing on. Focus on love, health, laughter, happiness, and abundance, and let your dreams grow.
Until next time, simply let it grow.
Big hugs and mucho love,
Positive Focus Founder & Vision Keeper
