In my blog, Best Laid Plans, I wrote about how grateful I am with all that I have in my life, and that’s true. I’d love to tweak a few things though.
For example, as my regular readers know, the heat and humidity take its toll on me where I live. So, I’d tweak my life by changing my geographical location (which I will do some day). I’d love to live near mountains (you may get a new neighbor, Pete, or Nick).
One of the blogger friends I follow has the other thing I’d choose to tweak in my life if possible. She is surrounded by family and friends. She talks to them frequently, perhaps even every day. They go bowling together. They spend a weekend together at a cabin on a lake, boating, fishing, sunbathing and perhaps the occasional drink. (Do you know who you are, my blogger friend?)
She has gatherings at her home on the deck in the summer, and family around the tree at Christmas. Those friends also welcome her for gatherings at their homes. When one of them needs something, she is there for them, and visa-versa. It seems like the perfect give and take.
The one other thing I’d add is to stay healthy.
I don’t really desire material things, because I have all that I need.
I have faith these things will manifest in my life. In the book Sermon on the Mount by Emmet Fox, he explains, ~ all causation is mental, … your home, your business, all your experience … are but the manifestation of your own mental status … it is there … in your subconscious mind. ~ This is why I chose my Wednesday Wisdom quote, to remind myself that I can cause that which I desire. Thought is cause and experience is effect. ~ Marianne Williamson
So, perhaps someday I’ll move near one of you, and we will be the kind of friends I described. In the meantime, I continue to cherish what I have in my life today. Gratitude takes a large part in manifesting more good.
