There is a lovely thought that goes like this…”your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds, you can grow flowers or you can grow weeds”…this simple thought can add such a beautiful perspective to how we live, how we can teach our minds to keep focusing on the beauty in everyday life, look for good in people, find hope in despair and observe endless acts of quite kindness…it may seem naive to most but being positive isn’t about not knowing the dark aspects of life but it is about what one chooses to focus their thoughts on…focusing on flowers that grow between the weeds…if we can teach our minds to look for good or a lesson or a blessing or just simple being grateful for what we have, I have come to believe from personal experience that it all adds up in changing our lives for better, we end up rewiring our minds, we rewrite our scripts, we open our eyes and truly live…hey so if being naively optimistic makes one happy, then so be it…ignorance is bliss is what I last heard anyways…
