What I've been thinking about.....

"If people don't know what you stand FOR, they'll only know you for what you stand AGAINST."

That statement has had me thinking for a few days. Do people know me by what I'm for or what I'm against? I really don't know. I'm a person, at least in my head, that if I had to choose: I would go to a pro-chocolate rally vs an anti-vanilla rally.

I've been tending to myself lately, and in doing so, have honestly become less and less concerned with what others think, and not just what they think about me. I've been following my own conscience, trusting my intuition, rather than looking to others for validation. That's a very freeing feeling.

Seriously (Grey's Anatomy begins soon.....) since I've been focused on myself, improving my life, improving my mind, improving my life experience; there's no room for other *stuff* to work it's way into my head.

I love the movie: What Women Want. When Mel Gibson's character can hear the thoughts of women, and how LOUD it becomes for him..... I found that to be so right on.

So, what are you thinking about? Are you thinking about what's wrong with your life, or what's right with your life? Are you thinking about what could happen, or enjoying your current life experience? Are you would a, could a, should a - or are you appreciating your life, for it has brought you to where you are now?

Peace & Blessings!

PS - This mornings rampage of appreciation:

*Adam woke me up gently, and on time (I have a way of smacking the alarm clock and falling instantly back to sleep)
*Apollo greeted me with very loud, enthusiastic kitty speak
*I got a new book yesterday that I LOVE LOVE LOVE!
*The *new gal* at work - ROCKS!
*I followed my grocery shopping list to the letter yesterday, while hungry. (1 of my items on my list was "snacks" - so there was just no possible way I could deviate from my original list!)
*My boss's daughter's first day of all day kindergarten is today - yesterday I got to share in her excitement
*My parents are coming this weekend. Friday is their wedding anniversary, and Saturday is my birthday
*Saturday is my birthday
*I scored a free loom - I'm picking it up today after work (more on this later)
*Did I mention: Saturday is my birthday?
