I was talking to a client about how broad a range there is, as far as how a person chooses to see things. For example, there are are some who think everything – every little thing that happens is a blessing. Good things, bad things, medium things…everything is a blessing.
There are other people who rarely see the good in anyone or anything. A person’s perspective is no small thing!
As another example, someone told me that everything seems to be going wrong in regards to our finding a house. I can see how it looks that way, but it does not look that way to me.
Sure! It would have been nice to pack a truck, arrive here and unload it into our new home. But that didn’t happen and I can see a lot of upside to this situation.
Our house in Colorado sold in a day. Hard to see that as not going well. I admit we landed hard here, but I know have time to shop for a house and better yet, we’ll be able to use the proceeds from the sale of our old house to pay for our new house. This also seems not merely good but a great situation.
Granted, we don’t know where we are going to wind up, but that does not mean we are not going to wind up somewhere great! This story is still unfolding!
One more example, because this is so common…
A person is dating someone and they have fight with them. They recover from the fight and what do they focus on?
Many if not most people focus on the imperfectness of it all.
“Everything was great and then, Wilbur and I had a fight. Now, I just don’t know. He used to be great but…”
See what an awful story that is? Try this:
“Wilbur and I got in a fight. We recovered…I think that’s a really good sign that we’ll be able to overcome differences in the future…”
This has to do with Saturn in Sagittarius too, of course. The story you believe is the real one. It makes sense that you mind the story that you tell.
Generally speaking, do you spin your life up…or down?
