What Do You Do?

When what your plan gets interrupted?
Change your plans and flow with what is.
When your health goes south?
Direct your attention with gratitude what works well to heal you.
When you lose your job?
Appreciate the job you had and open the way to the next right livelihood for you.
In the meantime, volunteer and use your gifts.
When something goes wrong?
Decide that there must be some value, lesson, gift or blessing in it all.

Today we were going to go to the mountains to spend the day sledding and playing in the snow with the grand three, Lila, Harper and Beckett at South Lake Tahoe. A winter storm is coming through, so here we are at home, staying safe and warm. What we will do today is enjoy each others’ company, play games and trust there will be another right time soon. This makes it easy to find happiness with whatever occurs.

Life and its changing weather, moods, political and economic stresses cannot be predicted or planned for.
But we can find our own center and live from that place with inner peace and certainty that our needs will be met. We can choose to be happy with life the way it is. We can choose to love it all anyway, rather than shrink back in fear. We can choose to look toward the sunshine rather than judge the rain and snow.
We can choose to make up ways to continue to be happy in spite of what may be occurring.

Life is a choice.
Our attitude determines our experience.
So choose the experience you want to have.
Find the attitude and thoughts that support it.
Live determined to hold the attitude that serves you.

Loving you,
Betty Lue
