your focus determines your reality."
Over the past few years, I have adopted the idea of more fully surrounding myself with things that are a "10"; in other words, they make my heart sing... I figured that if I was willing to make a long-term commitment to caring for something, it only seemed wise - out of a sense of mutuality and good balance - that it would care for my heart in return. Of course, my "10" may not be another person's "10" - but that is fine with me - what seems more important, is for each person to take the time to discover what makes them happy on a consistent basis, and draw that into their life with focus. Perfection is not the goal... discovery and a shared sense of belonging is (that beautiful ah-ha moment when you sense a "rightness"... and, well... you simply "feel your heart sing," and you instinctively know that you want to more fully belong to that reality!)
What are the "10"s that make your heart sing... (your favorite color, favorite book, favorite place, favorite bowl, favorite scent, favorite photo, favorite work to do, favorite space, favorite individuals) - are they in your life already... or are they simply waiting to be discovered and brought closer by you? What exactly is it that gives your heart "a song to sing"? Have you taken the time to know?
