Perception ~ Drop in the Ocean

in dito •  last month


We are in an amazing season of travel going all over the country and spending time with friends as we go. We are currently hanging out in Las Vegas at the Steem Creators headquarters with @larrymorrison. What an amazing guy. Our first night here, I was really inspired by a conversation we were having about living in abundance, which is a word that keeps popping up for us.

Through our talk Larry shared a philosophy he has for life. If you want certain things in your life...health...wealth...love...abundance...imagine what that would feel like, and live like that.

If you had all of those things, or even just one, how would you feel? Happier? Less stressed? Excited for the future? It's all perception. The best part is that you are able to start living in a place of joy and thankfulness. Then that translates over to your decision making. If I feel overworked or stressed I often make poor decisions because I'm making them out of a place of desperation or survival. But if I already feel like I'm successful, that everything was going to work out, my choices would be based on an entirely different mindset.

I took this picture of a sign he has posted in his office.

It was so inpsiring! I want to feel like I'm winning everyday, and I can because it's all about my perspective on my own life. If I choose to feel like my life is a struggle because I don't have what I want then my life is going to reflect that. It's incredibly hard to make things come into fruition and reach goals if you are wollering in negative emotions.
So, I hope this inspires everyone as much as it has inspired me!

This was the post I mentioned where she discusses abundance and my simple mind could not get itself wrapped around the thought. :) https://steemit.com/medicinecardmonday/@eaglespirit/medicine-card-monday-26-angel-card-abundance-my-gift-to-steemit-week-of-november-12-2018

Kind of how I am struggling with perception but will keep trying and change my perspective. :)

I love this! I want to read it!

I'll have to find it .. just a short story! Maybe 3 pages long? I'll see if I can find it 😊

Those are thoughts worth remembering!

·

Right? I really like it.

Very inpiring @freedomtowrite! I have heard before if you want success ... project success. It's all about that positive mindset. There has to be some truth to that.

Thanks for sharing!! It was good to see you in DITO today!! Can't wait to see all about your travelling adventure!!

Thank you! I think there is some truth to it. If you think you can't than you won't, but if you know that you can, than success could come so much easier. All those road blocks that are in your head would be removed, right?

I really love it when I can make it to DITO and spend time with you guys! And yes, I need to write more traveling blogs!

Ah!! Yes I can see how my abundance fits with your post now lol
Cool. Yes so very true and when manifesting is powerful. Great to see this great application. I thought you were going to write something about perception and your banner is missing the “r” and is it all perception 😂😂😂😂

Dropping by to support your post @freedomtowrite, after finding a link to it while browsing through the #gratefulvibes channel for the first time this morning.

The title stood out to me, as I am most drawn to posts that are more philosophical in nature. So, thought I would read through it. Glad I did!

”… I was really inspired by a conversation we were having about living in abundance, which is a word that keeps popping up for us.”

Perception. The mystery and marvel of the human mind. And what it is potentially capable of, which is not the same thing as what it is far too often engaged in instead … Your profile cites being a Christ follower. As am I! I believe as long as we keep our focus on the eternal vs. the temporal, all will be well …

Until we “meet” again, @freedomtowrite, I hope you and your family are safe out on the “highways and byways” of life. All the best to you and yours for a better tomorrow! 😊
