Believe the Best...
So, I have learned that the happiest couples have this secret for being happy. They always believe the best in each other. When one is late, instead of complaining, "he is always late". She states, "there must be a good reason that he is late".
This ability to believe the best is a skill when applied changes the perspective on any situation and places the focus on a positive rather than negative in a circumstance.
What would happen in your life if you could practice this especially with those you interact with most frequently? I know people will say that I have roses glasses. This is where my roses glasses come from. I just always believe the best.
I practice this with my family and friends. I practice this with those I work with. It is almost like working with the Golden Rule. I want others to believe that I don't do things intentionally to spite you and look for you to fail.
So, as I was coaching others to believe the best, I had an epiphany. What if I believed this not only in my personal relationships with others but also with God.
Do I really believe that, that I trust God... Believe the best that God has in store for me. It made me ponder. I may be praying for confirmation and then when I get a different answer than the one I want, can I believe that God's answer is the best. Do I believe the best in/with God?
It becomes a matter of trust. Trust God. Trust yourself. Trust others.
Yes, I know that is naive. I like my small bubble where I believe the best. It makes my life happy and there is joy in all situations. Yes even the difficult ones.
Then you must remember to breathe - think - smile.
Go make your day a FABULOUS DAY...
