Notes From The Universe

I get an daily email from a site called Notes from the Universe - written by Mike Dooley, one of the people in the movie The Secret. Here is the one I read today. Not sure I can "hear it" yet, but I am willing to ponder it.

I guess what it brings up for me is that I want to find a way for this experience to bring meaning into my life. For example, I appreciate my husband so much today, more so than ever before. I am grateful for that gift in my life. I know there are other gifts. I can choose to focus on the nightmare- or I can choose to focus on something else. Tonight I will focus on the love I have for my husband.

Whenever your perspective on something creates emotional pain, Lisa, it's
always because your perspective is still so narrow that you've yet to see all the
good it will make possible.

Because it will.

I can see clearly now...

Wow - you already answered my first question, which was..."how do I get in on that???", and yes - perspective is the most crucial thing we, "loss" mothers have to find. It is a long hard search, but the reward is GREAT! (see my Friday post "Moments")

Hope you can enjoy your weekend by focusing that amazing husband of yours!

Thanks for sharing. Perspective is a huge key to how you view things. I wish I had mine on straight sometimes...
