What We Look For Is What We See
What we look for is what we see. If you see a world that denies you what you need, that is the world you will experience, but if you see a world that gives you everything you need and more, that is the world you will co-create with and expand with your vision of life. Anne Davin
This morning I went on a hiking trail, a group invited me to go. Firstly I was hesitant because I know that they are quite fit, they usually run marathons and this trail was part of their training. Secondly, I am recovering from my injured shoulder so I was also fearful of how the hand would hold up. In the end I decided to go, to challenge myself and to come out of the comfort zone.
I am so happy that I did go
It was tough, the hills were long and the trail included fallen trees and bush
I made the decision to start talking to myself with encouraging words, to rest when I am tired and to only compete with myself.
At one point I lost the group, I was alone in the forest with the birds and trees, I stopped and looked up, the sun was shining through the trees, the leaves were red and looked like a carpet on the ground, the birds and other insects were making a choir. As I stopped I saw butterflies around me. I took a deep breath
It became clear that it really is mindset over matter and what you seek you will find
If I focused on how hard it was, how much the leaves made the trail slippery I would miss the red leaves, the butterflies, the sun peeking through the trees, the butterflies guiding me on the path.
What are you looking for on your trail?
