We see exactly what we think we’ll see. When we look for pain and sorry and betrayal, that’s what we see. When we look for kindness, gratitude, sweetness, opportunity, joy and goodness, we see those things everywhere. The actress Drew Barrymore began photographing heart shaped things in nature and the more she looked for naturally occurring hearts, the more she found them until she says, she found hearts everywhere she looked. She wrote a book called Finding it in Everything, about her experiences with hearts and shared her photographs.She came away with the impression that the world is presenting hearts to us at every moment. For her, that is true because it’s what she’s looking to find. If we believe there is danger and darkness everywhere, that’s what we’ll find. Both hearts and danger exist in our world. But we can change our experience by expecting to see more goodness and less pain. We can fine tune our vision to see and experience more joy and less sorrow in the world. What will you look for today?

    I love that thought, that we see what we think we see. I need to practice seeing kindness, love, joy, gratitude and all those things. I’ve had a rough few years. Maybe if I start this practice, things will be better or at least I’ll feel better….
