A few days ago, I had a meaningful chance to apply concepts I talk a lot about . . .
CHOOSING thoughts that make you feel better now, despite the situation… CONSCIOUSLY focusing on a desire and, to the extent that it soothes you and promotes productive action, neglecting the current reality for the sake of feeling better TODAY… Deliberately drumming up hope–or the next best relieving emotion you can. In this instance, our family dog was dognapped. Through the days of stress and chaos, it was a continual exercise to watch for hopeful signs to present themselves. And they did. Again and again. I decided quickly that these hopeful happenings were going to be the lily pads to ride upon on my way to reuniting with our pup.
