Chapter 2, Page 9, Book 20

One’s destination is never a place,
but a new way of seeing things.

Henry Miller

February 9th- see through the eyes of love

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off.  The eyes of love, instead  see all of us as one.

Bill Hicks

 Love changes the way we look at things. Everything  that could be a disaster seems to be just fine. Every moment this good seems like miracle .  It is amazing when you think about it, what love does to our perspective.  We can become totally different people when we love.   happier more sane, nicer, because were seeing everything through a more positive lens.  Love makes us see the world differently.

Im talking about the kind of love that makes you feel great, that makes you believe you are awesome, and that makes the world seem a much better kinder place.  Theres a glow to everything, a sparkling happiness that makes every the most unfortunate of situations seem bearable.  

Even if youre not in love, its very possible to see the world like lovers do.  Love yourself.  You can focus on things others love about you or figure out what you love about yourself and spend some time on those things.  We should all love ourselves. Were all astoundingly awesome, amazing and unique. 

Be excited about life .  You can look at things and see the world from a fresh perspective , really see whats happening around you.. Take in each moment .  Savor your moments and make the most of every second youre alive.

Smiling can always make a huge difference. Smile at yourself, smile at the stronger on the street,Smile when no one can see you, It will make you feel happier.  

Seek out the positives.  Find the bright side in every day. Look for the happiness and joy around you.  You can choose to focus on whats positive in your life and the world. 

Sometime no matter how hard you look, there will be a whole lot of negatives, but we need to rise above them.  Deal with them and move on..

Love is one of the greatest things in the world and there is almost nothing like looking through the eyes of love and knowing you are loved back.  Even though you are not in love, its awesome when you can see the world through the eyes of love .  Fall in love with your life and life will love you back.

I wonder why the term 'rose-colored glasses' came to be a negative thing. Me? Like a favorite old song lyric, I choose to "AC-CENT-uate the positive, e-LIMINATE the negative …"
Happy Sunday!

Loved this today - I love the first meme(?). Love is patient and kind.

Good advice to love ourselves; if we can't love ourselves how can we be expected to love others?
