Others want to know your secret because you usually seem cheerful and confident about what you are doing. Thankfully, you are blessed because you can have a lot of fun while fulfilling your daily obligations. But you can’t divulge your method because you don’t have a hidden formula. Just do what you do best; continue to be honest while living your life as transparently as you can. The simplest things can bring you joy now, even if the current challenges you face demand your attention.

The moment I read my horoscope on Christmas Eve I knew I was going to to fit it into a blog column this week.  I have had others wonder about my almost perpetual positive mood.  Several times a week people ask how I maintain such an outlook.  The passage:
But you can’t divulge your method because you don’t have a hidden formula.
is true.  There is no secret or if there is I certainly don’t know it.

The only thing I can I say (and I understand that many of you will be shaking your heads) is I count on my faith to keep me centered.  I know that everything will be fine.  In the end, the Divine/God/Source has me in its embrace.  Whatever happens is meant to happen and God will keep me from any long term harm.

Thankfully, you are blessed because you can have a lot of fun while fulfilling your daily obligations.
I’ve written here before about finding your gift.  I am blessed that I’ve found the gifts that were given to me when I incarnated.  And that not only I can use them to help others but that I make a living doing so amazing.  It’s why I have so much fun while fulfilling my daily obligations.  I don’t consider my work obligations because I enjoy what I do so much.  You know that slogan:
Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

That explains my attitude to a tee.  It’s why I’m able to maintain my positivity.
I love my job!
I love my life!

Yes I have challenges just like everyone, but I look to turn those challenges into blessings.
I don’t drive on the highway; but look where I work and live.  I work five minutes from my home.

If that’s not God looking out for me, if that’s not a gift from God then I don’t know what is.  That’w what I meant above when I wrote:
I know that everything will be fine.  In the end, the Divine/God/Source has me in its embrace.  Whatever happens is meant to happen and God will keep me from any long term harm.

I’m constantly looking at my challenges and turning them into gifts.  I guess that’s my secret.  If you can follow that simple step, if you want to do the work it takes to look for the blessings in your challenges, you too can change your life.

It won’t be easy to start, but it will get easier the more you practice.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
