I’d like to propose a challenge. No, wait. That sounds daunting. Let me try again. I’d like to invite you to join me for two days of pure positivity. Forty-eight little hours of looking for and at only the good stuff. Of ignoring what isn’t beautiful. I’m not asking you to give up misery forever. Forty-eight hours and one minute from now, you are welcome to seek out all the stuff that makes you angry, sad, frustrated, and worried, but for two days, let’s sweep all that under the rug and then dance atop it. What do you say, are you in?
It’s best to begin your 48 heart-centered hours smack dab in the middle of your noisy, messy, over-scheduled, under-rested, the cat just vomited on the sofa, complicated life. Does that sound like now? Good. It wouldn’t have nearly the impact were you to don your rose colored glasses while lounging on the beach.
There aren’t any rules, but we might want to go over the basics. This isn’t a directive to change anything in your life except your view. There’s no need to distance yourself from the people, places, and situations you currently hold responsible for spiking your blood pressure and feeding your belief that the world is going to hell in a handbasket. Rather, it’s an exercise in standing steady in the midst of life and actively noticing what you might sometimes miss while you’re busy grumbling about the noise, mess, and injustice. Kindness, innocence, beauty, wisdom, laughter, truth, and love—they’re all there. Look closely. Focus. Notice.
Got those glasses ready? Okay, on the count of three, let’s pop them on. One. Two. Three!
Take a good look around and remember, wear ‘em for the full 48 hours. Let’s report back in a couple of days.
