“Focus on the positive.”

This is another in the series of – What you focus on expands.  Here we go again!

My husband decided we needed a swing for our deck.  The swing is on a frame, seats three, and has an awning.  It’s lovely.  For some reason I began going out to the swing with my coffee right after my shower.  Previously, pre-swing purchase, I’d take my coffee to my computer and jump right into the day.

My whole life has changed because of this!  (The previous statement is a fabrication.  Just want to see if you’re paying attention.)  Anyway, even though we live in a residential area, the swing is situated so it faces one of the few empty lots in town.  My view?


It looks like I’m in the woods.  I spend about a half hour listening to the birds sing and the squirrels screech.   The neighborhood cats come to visit.  We talk and share our plans for the day.

I could also position the swing to face a different direction.  Here are two of the optional views available to me.

Like I said, residential.

Even though this new morning ritual involves a physical point of view, it got me thinking about the mental points of view that I focus on. Not sure where this train of thought is going.  Maybe I’ll talk with my visiting cats.  I’ll see what they have to say about this.
