This life: good or bad?

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” - Wayne Dyer

I used to think that life was hard and that it can be difficult. As if life is biased in this way. But the truth is, life is just life and it is me who adds something that gives me what I get in my experience. I know that if I decide to be loving and kind then this is what I feel. This becomes my experience no matter what is actually happening. 

I strive in this way to be proactive with how I feel and not reactive. I used to just react to my situations and so I got a mixed bag of good stuff and not so good stuff. If someone was mean to me then I could feel badly, but if someone treated me kindly I felt wonderful. But this is a reaction and not intentional. 

Today I am intentional with everything that I do, say and feel. I still have daily work to do that helps me cultivate my good feeling days, but now I know how it works. Now I know that I am truly in charge of how I feel and what kind of feeling experience that I get to allow. This is liberating! 

I dream of feeling the feelings of love and joy all day long no matter what happens to me. I know this is possible, and I am making it my reality more and more each day. I have my moments of weakness when I choose to blame others or something outside of me for how I feel, but now they are only moments. 

I accept who I am. I accept where I am. I accept where I am going. I truly believe that nothing and nobody in this life is truly bad. I do not believe in a universe or an existence that is bad. No on the contrary I believe that this life and universe and everything in it are all good. It is just my perspective that can change how I feel about everything. So my work is within. 

I don’t need to change the world any more, because I know the secret. If I want my world to change, I change myself and what I experience changes instantly! I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so is everything in this life!
