Pass your philosophy on

In one of the emails I received this morning, someone made the following remark:

“… I wish you could pass your philosophy on to me…”

And it’s one of those statements people make – that cause me to become more aware of myself and my life. If I was to give the shortest, most to the point reply to that statement it would most likely be the explanation that there’s mostly only one thing I care about…

… I just want to be happy – and be myself.

Essentially, I learn as I go, I figure things out as I face new contrasts – and life enables and some time forces me – to reach new heights and take a look around from new perspectives.

What is my life philosophy, anyway?

  • I look for something positive in everything and everyone
  • I look for things to love, everywhere I go, anything I do
  • I look for something to appreciate, no matter who I’m with

Sometimes I  make a list of things I love. This morning, my list spells out the following:

  • I love to walk around the house, especially in the morning, when the festive sun rays touch the lawn and my plants for the first time and everything is so alive, refreshed and regenerated, when the new buds on my roses can’t wait to open up and show off all of their beauty and give away their enchanting scent…
  • I love to write down wonderful thoughts that make me smile…
  • I love how my Chiranian Ally jumps into my lap and looks at me with those puppy eyes, filled with unconditional love…
  • I love dreaming about things that make me happy…

And a list of things I appreciate in this moment:

  • I appreciate feeling as delightful as I am feeling right now…
  • I appreciate my life, this house, the view from my window and this laptop that’s serving me so good…
  • I appreciate my friends who inspire me to write uplifting posts like this one…
  • I appreciate that I am always loved, guided, protected and provided for…
  • I appreciate how everything always works out for me…
  • I appreciate the birds singing right outside my window…

I could go on and on. And sometimes I do – because I just can’t stop thinking about how fortunate I am – to be able to share all this love/appreciation/awe – that keeps pouring from my heart – with anyone from around the world who might be on the same (loving, thankful, happiness-seeking) wave-length with me. 🙂

I’ve never consciously thought of this before. I too have a myriad of philosophies depending on the subject. If we’re talking about raising children I think they need to understand there are consequences for everything they do; if it’s about cooking, I believe that it’s so much easier to clean up as you go rather than leave a big ol’ mess. I learned that from my mother. One I’m still working on is to just let things go emotionally. It’s hard to not see my grandkids, but money and distance keep us apart. Nice to visit here today Daria!

I try to keep a positive outlook too, but my subconscious is a little more negative. Maybe a list of positive things would help me.
