It is obvious, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it said exactly this way, and when I saw it for the first time, it was as if it jumped off the page. How often do we spend time thinking about what can go wrong? What we fear? What might happen? What others will think? How it will work? The plan? The plan for the plans? The news? The economy? The bills to pay? The lack of _____ or _____? It’s not that any of us would consciously focus on those things, right? We all know that focusing on these things won’t help, right? Yet, we do. We pay attention. We were taught to pay attention. The radio, TV, Internet, newspaper, friends, co-workers all tell us to pay attention. Who has time to focus on what we desire? But, what if we did? How would that change things if we focused on our desires and ignored the fears? Hmmmm. Maybe we’re on to something here. . . Ain’t No Sunshine When It’s Gone. . . Only Saddness Every Day. . . NOT!
