Yes, after taking a brief walk on the dark side, and noticing how much crappier it feels to focus even mildly on people’s shortcomings and faults, I am going to focus on cleaning up my own yard rather than wondering why my neighbors haven’t mowed their lawns or trimmed their hedges in months ;-)
This is not selfless. This is full-on selfishness. It feels way better for ME to appreciate other people. It feels way better for me to see the love behind the hate, and to notice all the little ways that people support me (little do they know it, often supporting me even with their criticism, which either helps me clarify my own perspectives or sends my blog traffic through the roof … lol :-)
So this is my 30-day challenge. To focus as much as I possibly can, for 30 days, entirely on people’s loving and positive attributes and on all the ways they make my life happier and more alive. If anyone would like to join me in setting this intention, I welcome your support and comraderie.
