How's your attitude, and who gave it to you?

Yesterday I had a perfect example of face and replace.

I wanted to be angry and aggravated.  Things weren't "going my way" and I was really beginning to go to that grrrrr place.  I got in the truck and the radio was on (usually it's on cd because I am listening to my inspirational cds, but Scott drove the truck last) and out belted Starship and "We built this city on rock and roll" - I turned the volume way up and experienced an immediate mood switch to happiness and joy.  Nothing changed but my mood.  However, as a result of that, I had a much better day, I imagine I was a lot more fun to be around, as a matter of fact I'm SURE I was more fun to be around, and I was thinking more clearly, and things sort of resolved themselves around the day.

Face and replace.  For me, it's the little practical examples that have the biggest impact....

Love, Jet

What are you looking at?

This morning I started to walk out of hearing range of our main entrance, got a thought to stop, pause, and go check to see if the door was locked.  My husband was outside tending to our horses and we occasionally forget to unlock the door when stepping outside for a quick chore.

I checked the door and sure enough, it was unlocked, so he could get back inside.  Content, I set off to check the woodstove in another part of the house.

Moments later, I heard the dog bark, and hurried back to see what had alarmed her, knowing it was my husband, but wondering what the problem was.  He was stuck at the inner door, which was locked, and I had not checked it. 

I don't profess to be a psychic, or a telepath, but I do know that what we see in the outside world is a reflection of what we are thinking.  I knew, intuitively, that I should check the door to make sure my husband could get back in the house easily.  After all, we had both occasionally locked either each other or ourselves out; however, I checked the wrong door!  Or maybe I didn't complete the process of "checking."  Whichever it was, I know one thing - I knew I needed to look more closely at something, and I stopped the process too soon  based on an assumption and a previous experience.

So what did I learn?  That I am listening, and hearing, which is the good news.  Now I just need to practice a little more to follow through completely to the correct focus, whether that is a more thorough listen, or a focus on the "right door."

Have a great day listening and focusing!
