Life Will Answer Quote of Note # 62 (K. Mansfield 1)

101_0010_Watermarked

An observation worth noting … and pondering, from Katherine Mansfield :

Could we change our attitude,
we should not only see life differently,
but life itself would become different

Life always offers us all kinds of opportunities in all kinds of setting for all kinds of reasons. We’re given the freedom to choose countless paths to achieve countless objectives, all as we feel compelled to honor … or not.

The first steps are always the most important. The vision, the dream, the ideal, the purpose … the label we assign doesn’t matter. We start with a thought of what to do or be. It might be a thought for the short-term just as it can be the thought for the rest of our days, and/or all the variations in between.

Those choices belong to us. What becomes of those first moments of inspiration and choice depends on the beliefs we take with us and the efforts we expend. Those essential contributions to the ultimate attainment of our objectives are framed by the attitudes we adopt along the way.

Casual effort with excuses at the ready will produce exactly what they can and should produce. Passionate commitments and wholehearted efforts will do the same. The approach we take to honoring our inspirations carry their own power and means of assistance.

If we deeply desire what we profess to seek—whatever that may be—and we fuel that desire with an attitude which makes clear that what we seek we will find a way to achieve, then Life Will Answer.
