What are you doing right now to change your life?

Saul Fleischman said, in an interview with John Falchetto “Even a rainy day can be fun”.
 
I fully agree with him.
 
It’s about how you look at things. You are responsible for how you perceive them. Focus on those things you can do something about. It is often easier to complain, be cranky and appear frustrated. From personal experience I know that once in a while it just feels good to be grumpy and angry. But in the long run, it doesn’t help you, nor those around you.
 
Be proactive! Consider what you could be doing to change certain circumstances and feel much better about yourself immediately. The feeling will last for ever. Be the initiator, not the victim and I promise you, your strength and inspiration will continue to grow. You need some quiet time to do this, as well as the courage to be quiet, persistency and faith in yourself, and trust the outcome – that everything happens, when it happens. 
 
We all aspire to be happy, healthy and wealthy some day in the future but 
ONE key question remains: What are you doing during that time of waiting and hoping????
So, let me know what are you doing right now to change your life?
 
Have a happy and inspiring start to the week.

‘I can’t believe THAT!’ said Alice

‘Can’t you?’ the Queen said in a pitying tone. ‘Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.’

Alice laughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’

I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast’.
