It’s been some time since I last posted. Lately I’ve had to watch my amount of intake of information. As a highly sensitive person things can get to me quickly. I have to remind myself to not drown in the negativity and craziness of this world and shift to seeing all the good.
I recently read something and I’m sorry to say I can’t remember who wrote it or where it was but it stuck with me. The idea was to change the way you think of the things that you don’t particularly enjoy doing. For example, instead of bemoaning the fact that you have to make dinner you can think of it from the point of view that you get to make dinner for your family or yourself. Instead of thinking that you have to shop, prepare and cook the meal think instead how lucky you are that you get to do that. You have enough money to buy the food. You have the ability to get to the store to buy the food and you’re able to cook the food.
It certainly changes the perspective doesn’t it?
I’ve been coming upon lots of lovely things lately.
-I love Chip and Joanna Gaines. Did you know that they have started their own network? From what I’ve read and watched it seems like it will be filled with lots of positive stories. Coming soon.
-I recently listened to this podcast and found it so interesting. From the Amazon page for his book :“David Epstein examined the world’s most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors, forecasters and scientists. He discovered that in most fields—especially those that are complex and unpredictable—generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Generalists often find their path late, and they juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. They’re also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can’t see.” So if you have started late and/or you aren’t a specialist here’s some encouragement.
