Think About This Perspective
DO What You Love
Do what you love and you will love your life, even if it is only 15 minutes a day. November is my birthday month. Happy Birthday to all you October and November babies out there, no matter what age you are! I allow myself to ask for what I want, especially, in November. I have been realizing that asking for what you want is OK, even if you don’t succeed originally. In reading “The Aladdin Factor” by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen I am gaining and reinforcing new beliefs.

So, I have booked myself for a weekend getaway to Palm Desert for a Peak Potential workshop. I will arrange visits with my baby sister, her partner and my sister-in-law and my older brother, just discharged from the Corona Regional Medical Center, Hooray, I can hardly wait to lay my hands on them! (Next I want to book a train ride to visit another baby sister and many of my nieces in Washington state-a friend, recently, returned via train)
Before I digress, any further, let me tell you the point I was leading to. I questioned myself why I like to travel and stay in nice hotels. Especially, when I have such a nice little home, great garden, a great hubby and six dogs, just blocks from the ocean. I realized a few things; I love to meet people. I enjoy great service and I love to be of service. Even more surprising, I discovered I love to be in clutter free environments.
Next I decided why do I have to go somewhere else to enjoy a clutter free environment. Sooo, I asked my honey to gift me a very special birthday present. It took a bit of thought and I have some time to prepare for the thoughtful support and acknowledgment for my new, consistently, clutter free home. Especially, my three desks and the top of my dresser. They have been clear, previously, however, they used to become cluttered, again, and again, and again. No more, I deserve better and will do, whatever it takes, to maintain a clutter free environment, to match my clutter free mind.
The House of 1000 Mirrors
Long ago in a small, far away village, there was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.
When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as he could.
To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the house, he thought to himself, “This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often.”
In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, “That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again.”
All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?
“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” ~Oscar Wilde
