if you believe it, it seems true

Love this:

"How often have we said, 'That's the way I am,' or 'That's the way it is.'? Those specific words are really saying that that's what we believe to be true for us. Usually, what we believe is only someone else's opinion we have incorporated into our belief systems. No doubt it fits right in with all the other things we believe.

Are you one of the many people who will get up in the morning see that it's raining, and say, 'Oh, what a lousy day!'?

It is not a lousy day. It is only a wet day. If we wear the appropriate clothing and change our attitude, we can have a lot of rainy day fun. If it is really our belief that rainy days are lousy days, then we will always greet rain with a sinking heart. We will fight the day rather than flow with what is happening in the moment.

If we want a joyous life, we must think joyous thoughts. If we want a prosperous life, we must think prosperous thoughts. If we want a loving life, we must think loving thoughts. Whatever we send out mentally or verbally will come back to us in like form." --Louise Hay, You Can Heal Your Life

I love the rain analogy. I live in Washington state, and we get a lot of rain already. And the summer has been hugely wet this year, it seems to make everyone in a negative mood. But I always say, it is what it is....haha, because I dont mind. I wake up and say Oh its raining...I love the smell. Or, oh good my lawn can have a drink.

Its all about perspective!
