How we view a situation depends on our own mindset

How we view a situation depends on our own mindsetA discovery which is not new is, “How we view a situation depends on our own mindset.” Another way to say it is, “What we focus on expands!”

A Bible verse which I have found meaningful is, Finally, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.How we view a situation depends on our own mindset

Our peony is especially beautiful this year. As I was admiring its beauty, I also realized how fleeting this beauty is. It will bloom and quickly die. Do you focus on the beauty of the moment or the realization that this moment is short lived. I want to focus on the beauty and appreciate it. What about you?

Love your positive outlook on life, Cal.  That's just how I try to view things.  I like keeping that glass half full.

Cal....unfortunately, my focus these days is on keeping my head above water! It seems I work 10 hours, 7 days a week! But, I did take a good chunk of today off, worked in the yard, picked up a few plants and installed them around my fish pond, and mowed the yard till the mower broke. So is shelled out $400 for a new one!

I did write an offer this evening, and now listening to a webinar, having a glass, and playing in the rain.

One day, my efforts will be rewarded..and I can go on vacation!

Kathy, I am honored to have reminded you of your Mom! I am glad you could think of her today.

Leah, how are you doing? I am glad you are a half full kind of person. Be well.

Thom, I hear you. I do believe your efforts will be rewarded. I hope your offer comes to fruition. Keep your chin up.

Cal, I have to agree, and thank you for sharing that Bible verse: Finally, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

It's a smart thing to enjoy the beauty of the moment and not just rush through life missing them.

Cal - Life is short we can live it to its fullest or we can plod along in a vacuum the choice is ours and what we get out of it is affected by what we put into it.

Good to see that your peonies are blooming.  They are great for photographs.

Good morning, Cal.  Dolores and I spent Friday at Longwood Gardens.  You should spend some time there, with your camera in hand.

I do focus on 1/2 full, Cal. Lovely post with lovely photos. What you alluded to is what I believe...whatever it is we focus on we get more of. And, I am very clear on what I want more of. My job is to keep the focus on that, yes?
