Many of us have the habit of thinking that if only things were different, if we had more money, if we had better relationships, if we were somewhere else - things would be better. While doing this we spend a lot of our time out of the present moment and in our heads. Now, you might be thinking “But Lisa, you have said before that we should use our imagination to create what we want.” And that is true! There is a difference though between focusing on what we want in a pleasurable way vs. focusing on what we don’t want. When we focus on what we don’t want, by thinking “If only I could change this or that, I would be happy”, we are causing ourselves pain. Let’s try making a shift – create a new habit – a habit of being in the present moment and appreciating what is right in front of us. This is how we generate positive changes in our lives. So, let’s spend more time noticing the miracles of life. Let’s believe that where we are now is perfect for us. It’s all part of our journey, which is perfect. We are learning and growing – that is beautiful! Once we make this shift, we will naturally experience new and wonderful changes in our lives. And without even knowing it, we end our pain and suffering!
