How many times do we start a conversation with how good something is BUT it could be better.
We say things like…
“The event was good BUT it was missing xyz.”
“Good job darling EXCEPT it is missing xyz.”
I love the gift IF ONLY IT HAD xyz.”
My house would be better if it had xyz.”
We start out thinking we are being positive or constructive YET we many times say a BUT, YET, EXCEPT, IF ONLY…..and so many more conjunctions that negate what we just said. Or take a positive thought down to a negative. Or at the very least expressing that things could be better rather finding peace, joy, contentment in the JUST IS!
Thus I give each and everyone of us a challenge for a day…two…a week (but let’s start with a day!)….to say each sentence without a BUT!
How much will your attitude toward life change!?
Do you think your JOY will become more heartfelt….more full….more peaceful!
The buts, yets, ifs, excepts…..hold us back from our full joy potential!!!
Many hugs and blessings my dear readers….family….friends….
