What do your conversations sound like? If someone was eavesdropping, would they walk away with a sense of brushing past heaven? How wonderful would that be? I hope people could walk past me and get a touch of heaven.
Picture yourself at a BBQ, what is the tone of the conversation? It’s so easy to get into a conversation about problems, challenges, dramas – whatever you call it. and these things are part of life. But so are solutions! Unfortunately, they often get left out of the conversation. Someone needs to bring them in, make Solutions a welcome friend.
(Are you a tiny bit inspired? I’m getting excited just typing this as it comes to mind. I love thinking happy thoughts! Don’t you?)
So how do we do this, be a little bit of heaven on earth? It definitely takes focus, because we so easily slip into the auto pilot of noticing the problem. Our brains are wired like that, and it’s a good thing, because we can be aware of danger and avoid it, notice things going wrong and address it – finding solutions. But we must decide to! A great friend is one who invites us to adjust our focus, and allows us to invite them to do the same.
Must fly, I’m going to meet someone now and give them a great invitation!
