Make the best of it. When you make the best of whatever you’re focused upon, your future will be better than your now. If each moment you’re making the best of what-is, no matter what it is, you make the best of it; make the best of it; make the best of it—your future just gets better and better and better, and better.
All Is Well
Today was a bit of a roller coaster for me. Things going on around me that I could not even remotely control and I was feeling all sorts of lower end emotional scale emotions about it all. I had a bit of rant and a cry about it and then did the only thing I could. I took myself out of the house and went for a walk.
I have, for the last month or so, decided to get my butt moving and up from my computer on a daily basis. Some minor back issues make it slow going at times, but today I was walking at a pretty good speed and I managed over 2 miles (as per my Fitbit and Endomundo tracking – yes, I am a gadget geek 😀 ).
The more I walk, the less I think. Thoughts still come but they seem to flow in and out but nothing really sticks. While I was out there, on of the thoughts that flitted in was the Work of Byron Katie. I remembered the relief that I felt when I had used her Inquiry process regarding a particularly hard topic regarding my son. I can’t remember what exactly the issue was, but I DO remember the feeling of relief I felt when I was going through her process.
I went and downloaded two of her books to my Kindle and really plan to go through them so I can release the battle I am doing with myself over things around me.
“A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but the attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.”
I am so ready to stop suffering and I am so grateful that I now have a road map that will help me get there.

“Gratitude is the intention to count your blessings every day, every minute, while avoiding, whenever possible, the belief that you need or deserve different circumstances.” —Timothy Miller
Living Life as a Thank You: The Transformative Power of Daily Gratitude by Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons
We want you to enjoy the contrasting experience, just like you enjoy the contrasting buffet. And we want you to reach the place (and practicing Virtual Reality will help you to gain this confidence) that whenever you’re in front of a buffet that has so much that you do like to eat, as well as some that you don’t like to eat, you don’t feel
frustrated that there are things there you don’t want to eat. You don’t feel compelled to put them on your plate and eat them; you just pick the things that you like. And the Universe of thought is the same way. You can choose from it the things that you like.
