Life can wear you down, or life can lift you up. It all depends on how you choose to see it and live it.
The primary component of weariness is not age or infirmity or circumstance. It is attitude.
The main ingredient of enthusiasm is not youth or comfort or good fortune. It is your attitude, based on your awareness.
What do you look for, think about, focus on and expect? That is what you will experience.
Focus the bulk of your awareness not on transient trivialities, but on what truly matters to you, to your dreams, and to your values. Pay much less attention to the fears and frustrations, and much more attention to the positive possibilities and opportunities.
Sincerely see life as beautiful and fulfilling, and you will make life beautiful and fulfilling. Your awareness has awesome power, so use it wisely and lovingly.
