I’m sitting here thinking about my life as it is at this moment and I have to say I’m pretty happy. Luckily for me I live in a wonderful country with a terrific wife, 3 kids all grown up and moved out. The eldest has given us two wonderful grandaughters and our youngest has just given us our first grandson. Our two son-in-laws would do anything for us whenever we asked. A parent could not ask for more for partners for their daughters. To top that off we have a great little dog. She has enough heart for a dozen dogs and shows us nothing but love. Neither of us can walk inside without having her meet us and want to cuddle. How we managed to meet up with a dog like this is beyond me. She is a duplicate of our children. Just as lovable, kind, mellow and loyal to a fault.
I’ve already packed my car with the things I need for a relaxing weekend away with my telescope under dark skies and am about to drop my wife off at our daughters place. I can go away knowing she will be well looked after as they are always asking when she is coming to stay next.
My car passed it’s registration check and the sky is clear. I’m not starving, in pain or having to worry about work.
Look at the things that are good in your life and the things you don’t have that could make things worse.
It’s not that there aren’t things I could ‘not like’ or that have gone wrong, but they only have power to make my life worse if I get them power by looking at them. If I don’t look at them and make them a factor, they have no meaning.
If you look at black you will see black. Look at what and you’ll see white.
What are you looking at in your life?
As I said, life is good.
