The way we choose so see the world, what aspects we focus on, powerfully impact our experience of the world. Everyone is a complex mixture of traits, some better than others. Every situation can be framed in many, many different ways. Given that there are 8 billion of us on the planet, each with unique personalities and world views, it is safe to say there are 8 billion different realties out there or at least 8 billion interpretations of reality.
Since we are all manifesting our own little personal nano-realities and responding thereto and thus re-enforcing same and teaching others how to treat us, it behooves us to create as positive a reality as possible, one that serves us, moves us forward, onward and upward.
What you focus on expands, thoughts held in mind attract in kind, experience follows vision. Keep these truths in the forefront of your mind and always walk on the sunny side, always choose the high road and your life will gradually get better, you will meet better people and attract better situations.
