Do you feel safe and secure? I suspect if you listen to current media, you might be challenged to feel safe. Whether the news is covering homeland security, pandemics, layoffs, or myriad of economy issues, the stories are laced with fear. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
Rather than focusing on trials and tribulations, I focus on what is going right in my life. I encourage you to do the same and I promise you, with practice your confidence will grow. You will begin to feel safer and more secure as you’ll realize you have the power to bring safety into your world. Rather than focusing on what you’d like to change in your life, focus on what is going right. Some days it might require focusing on the basics of being able to breathe while other days the list of gratitude will go on and on. The more you practice focusing on appreciation, gratitude, and love, the safer your world will become. Have faith that appreciation, gratitude, and love are your safety net. You might get a scratch or a bruise from time to time, but your safety net will always catch you.
