Today's fortune

"You will never find light by analyzing the darkness, and you'll never find your magnificence by analyzing your weaknesses." - Wayne Dyer

My favorite yoga teacher, Pat, always drops a printed "fortune" on our mats during savasana (the final resting pose in our class). Today, mine was the quote above, which was very relevant for me -- and so I thought I'd share it.

I spend a lot of time focused on what's wrong with me, what I don't have, what I can't do. I'm working on it, but it's easy to slip back into old, negative thought patterns. Sometimes little reminders like this one can be helpful!

that's a great fortune...

I'm a BIG fortune cookie fan. Lame, i know. My last two fortunes were fairly unlame though.

#1- "The hard work you've been pouring your soul out to will soon pay off." To which I was thrilled because it's a novel.

three days later:
#2- "Pay attention to your words as people will be lining up to read them."

I thought my husband would fall off his chair. So we saved them... :)

I love Wayne Dyer.

Thanks for passing this on...a constant struggle we share.
