Summer is Almost Here!
In less than a week, it will be the start of
the Summer season! I'm excited for it, are you? I find that this time of
year signals a whole lot of fun, joy, and feelings of being carefree.
But aren't those things subjective? What you may feel is fun or happy,
may not be the same for someone else. I have a daily Dalai Lama quote
calendar that I read every morning upon waking up. And it prompted me to
put the quote, "What you think about you create" up at the top of this
email. Here is the Dalai Lama quote for todays' date:
"Our state of mind plays a major role in
our day-to-day experiences as well as our physical and mental
well-being. If a person has a calm and stable mind, this influences his
or her attitude and behavior in relation to others. In other words, if
someone remains in a peaceful and tranquil state of mind, external
surroundings can cause them only a limited disturbance."
It's true, isn't it? Where our mind goes,
energy flows. In other words, what we think about we create, and what we
think about is true for ourselves. If we see something as a positive
experience then it surely is, and the opposite applies as well. I find
it difficult at times to always maintain a positive mindset. I'm human;
we're human. Sometimes you just can't help shutting your mind off. But I
plan on making this Summer a less stressful one. I want to feel
carefree and abundant. I'm going to make sure I don't over analyze and
think negatively too much, so that my outer experiences reflect my inner
feelings. Will you try to do the same? Who's with me?
