It’s funny, today I was thinking about the importance of what you focus on. As a kid, I remember seeing behaviors, traits, and characteristics that I didn’t like and vowing to never do or be that way. The thing is, inevitably, I ended up doing and becoming the way I didn’t want to. During my journey of self-discovery, I realized that I had spent too much time taking note of and focusing on what I didn’t want. True to the saying,
energy goes where attention flows.
While coming to this realization earlier would certainly have supported me to shift my attention and perspective, I’m glad that it’s something I’ve been doing for several years. By focusing my attention on endeavors, results, and intentions I desire, I’m able to put myself in a position to make them come to fruition. It’s only in the recent couple of years that I’ve become familiar with the Law of Attraction. I don’t think I would have been ready for it before making that realization on my own. Now it’s a principle I live by. Not only am I mindful of what I focus on but of the way I go through my day and the people I surround myself with. I’m very careful of my energy, my focus, and my space. I now live my life from a place that my energy goes where my intention flows.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and It’s All Small Stuff was one of those books that I read at just the right time. I love the style and tone in which the book is written. As a die-hard perfectionist at the time I began reading the book, it was full of insight to a perspective I needed to see. I encourage you to check out the full description of the book and read the reviews to see if it’s something that might support you as it did me.
