“If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.” ~Oprah Winfrey
Which one are you spending your time looking at? Abundance is a matter of perspective.
“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” ~Alan Alda
How often do you take time to challenge your assumptions about the world? Do you even know what assumptions you are making on a regular basis?

“Things falling apart is also a kind of healing.” ~Pema Chödrön
Sometimes, like with this hole in the Berlin Wall, things that fall apart are actually openings to free us from the constraints that we’ve build around ourselves. Although it may not feel like healing at first, time may well show how each falling apart was actually a form of healing that isn’t visible until we can see it in the distance of hindsight.
Where can you see glimpses of healing in the things that have fallen apart in your past?
“You can either be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure.” ~Paul Coelho
