oft in ourselves do lie
which we ascribe to heaven."
-- William Shakespeare
We have so much power and often we may think that we do not. We have the power to change our lives, our circumstances; indeed, our world. And, it's all because we can think thoughts and in particular to choose our thoughts.
Have you ever seen someone who did a makeover and changed dramatically from a so-called ugly duckling to a swan? Male, female, it matters not, but I'm sure you've seen someone who changed the way they look dramatically, and in so doing changed their lives for the better.
It isn't the change that drives a change in thinking, it is a change of thinking that drives the physical change.
I'll share some wonderful words to this effect from Abraham, Esther Hicks:
"You have the ability to quickly change your patterns of thought, and eventually... your life experience."
"The Law of Attraction is responding to your thought, not to your current reality. When you change the thought, your reality must follow suit. If things are going well for you, then focusing upon what is happening now will cause the well-being to continue, but if there are things happening now that are not pleasing, you must find a way of taking your attention away from those unwanted things."
As we see that which we want in our minds rather than the things we don't want, we draw on what we want. If I want to see beauty in the mirror, or in the neighborhood, or in the world, I must focus on seeing the beauty that is truly and always there instead of focusing on faults, or things that are ugly, wrong, disgusting, and that list grows so easily, doesn't it? But, we can always see beauty when we are focusing on beauty, and that includes seeing beauty in ourselves.
All of a sudden via our new appreciation, we begin taking better care of our appearance, our clothing, our surroundings. Maybe we are now seeing the beautiful tree instead of the unmowed lawn with weeds. No matter what, if we will but look for it, we will see beauty everywhere we look.
And, the really good news is that as we focus there, we see more and more beauty all the time. It may even get to the point that we don't even notice those things that used to drive us crazy when we looked at them.
