Hola beautiful read stars! How are you? I hope everything is well with you.

Today was good so far and surprising too because the husband decided to join Noise. This morning, he suddenly asked how to sign up so I sent him my referral link, lol! There isn't any concern though because he uses his mobile data while I use our home connection, so all good.

And let me take this chance to thank all who warmly welcomed him. He is quite shy and still needs to get the hang of it. I hope he gets around in the next few days.

I suggested that he go visit other users' profiles and "heart" one or two of their posts when he blurted, "What? only one or two? I have already been 'hearting' like 20 of your posts!" 

Hahaha, my bad for not letting him know earlier! He should not be "hearting" many of a single user's posts in one go or the bot will "think" he is spam.

Anyway, that was just a wee story that I can't let pass, lol!

Life is beautiful, ain't it? It's been so for long and will always be because we decided to see it that way no matter what is thrown in our midst. Or do you think otherwise?

Some years ago, I learned that "thoughts are things" which basically means whatever it is that we strongly think about will certainly manifest into our reality especially when we mix those thoughts with our feelings. Law of attraction as others prefer to call it which according to philosophers, is one of nature's laws that cannot be avoided.

Or "As you think, so shall you be," as Dr. Wayne Dyer puts it as the seven little words that have a great impact on how we will become or how we lead our life.

Why so?

Because whatever we think about shapes how we live our lives. It defines how we act, how we do things, how we believe things to be, how we develop our dreams, and how we eventually achieve them or make them into our own reality.

With that being said, we should then be very careful about the things we think about. If we want to create a happy life, we shall then think happy and positive thoughts.

"Positive thinking is both a philosophy and an expression of faith. It teaches the cultivation of peace of mind, not an escape from problems, but as a practical approach to creating a life that is personally and socially worthwhile. - Norman Vincent Peale

Thinking positively doesn't necessarily mean we ignore problems or any unpleasant things around us but more like approaching them in a more positive perspective and hopeful spirit.

For instance, instead of fretting or getting annoyed at how covid is affecting our lives significantly, we shift into being thankful that we and our families are still healthy and sound. That makes us hopeful of better days to come.

And in doing so, we still maintain our equilibrium and appreciate more of the good things around us.

I am not sure if I am even making any sense now so let me cut it off now and showcase the different sunsets as seen from our front yard instead.

And how about thinking "CAN DO" thoughts? Say, I can do this and that. I have the ability to do this or that...

And I believe Henry Ford was right with what he said and I quote:

"Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right." - Henry Ford

When you believe or think you can do something, you will find ways to do them. And when you think you cannot, then your mind will not help you because you already told yourself and believe that you cannot, hence you are also right.

And Mahatma Gandhi also succinctly summarizes how our thinking shapes our lives or destiny as he puts it when he said these words:

"Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny."
– Mahatma Gandhi

Need I say more? Nah, I'm pretty sure you know what I was blabbering about, lol!

Thank you once again, everyone! And I wish you a lovely weekend!

All photos are mine.
