There is a great power in consciously looking for something. When you look for something ,you set up energetic fields that attract what you are looking for. If you are having a bad day there is a very real chance that you will look for more bad. If you choose to do that, you will certainly find the bad you are looking for. There is so much power in the lens through which you choose to see the world and life. Life is everything. When you choose to look for good things, you do not eliminate the troublesome things of the world, but you send your energy out to shop for the good things that also exist. One of the powers of gratitude is that you are using your focus on good things. It does not mean that there are no challenges in your life, it simply means that your intention is to draw in more things for which you can be grateful.
