Shift your focus

It was one of those days when nothing seemed to be going right. It was raining, traffic had been nearly at a standstill, the computers were acting up, and one too many people called off sick. The day was going to be challenging to say the least.

I passed a co-worker who said, “good morning, how are you?” and I realized right then I had a choice to make.

I could focus on all the bad things that were going on, and sink into a pit of grouchiness that would likely radiate off me and attract more negative things to happen.

OR, I could choose to focus on good things and attract positive energy.

“I’m doing great!” was my response. Right then, my day turned around, almost like rain clouds clearing.

How will you shift your focus?
