Shifting My Focus

“Being brave isn’t supposed to be easy.” Sam Burns – TedTalk at http://youtu.be/36m1o-tM05g

Watching Sam talk about happiness really puts my life into perspective. His bravery is commendable, but the takeaway is that whenever we choose to focus on ‘the good’ we are being brave. Our default is to get caught up in the less than 1% of life that’s problematic – in other words, those things that fall short of our expectations. By consciously shifting my focus to gratitude whenever I’m in a funk, I get to stay in a place of peace, happiness and contentment more often. And when I’m in that zone, ILML!
