I love all the comments and quotes people are sending. In fact I’m getting hits from all over the world. The following is from England! It hits home because we choose our own reality!

Reality is how I choose to see my world, not an image dictated by others! There once was a time when I saw my life as never meeting expectations. I wasn’t young enough, slim enough, tall enough or smart enough. I didn’t have the right car, clothes, house, income, attitude or career. I wasn’t raised in the right community I didn’t hang around with the right people, have the right ethnic heritage, nor go to the right school. I was foolish enough to believe this was reality.

Reality… I was a failure, an odd ball, an outcast. Then one day I felt this gentle nudging. I can’t quite pinpoint the event or moment. Was it created in loss or was it realised in a moment of joy? But I began to see through the barriers of the world and there, just beyond them, I discovered “Hope.”

Here is what is real in my world today. The warmth of someone lying next to me at night giving me a sense of security and reminding me of love. The sound of children’s voices confirming that all is well with them and knowing that they are a great contribution to the world.

My cat waiting for me when I come home…he is happy to see me. Some times the only one.

The velvet touch of a rose petal between my fingers and the sweet smell it leaves behind, reminds me that the finest things presented to all my human senses, are not manufactured but created by God. The brightness of the sunrise cries out “Celebrate!” You are born again into a new day.”

The gentle touch of a strangers hand when first we say hello and connect palm to palm. Considered a ritual, a formality by some. I find it a moment of connection on a spiritual level.

The sounds of life carried by the wind; the cries of Bottom of Forma hawk,
The waves crashing on the shore,
The chatter of an anxious squirrel, and the bells on a distant ice cream truck carrying with it the sweet
cream treats of childhood memories.
The tears I shed for someone’s pain!
The smell of fresh cut grass.
Laughter.
The wisdom of someone older than I.
The wisdom of an innocent child.
The taste of mashed potatoes and melted butter.
The smell of a turkey roasting in my oven producing instant flashbacks of family gathered around in celebration of life.
The sound, “You have mail!” on my computer.

The words, “Thank you!” “My friend” “Love” and “Hope.”

Watching commercials about fast cars, designer clothes, being thin, being young, being wealthy and knowing they aren’t as important as being happy with who I am…in reality!

TODAY I’M GRATEFUL FOR my car!

TODAY I’M ATTRACTING all things good!
