A place to be

You will know joy when you give it a place to resonate within your heart. You will know wisdom when it has a place to live within your mind. Success and accomplishment will be yours when they have a place to exist within your life. Beauty you will see when it has a way to touch you.

The world you experience outside yourself will reflect the values you’ve allowed inside yourself. When you open yourself to the best of life’s possibilities, they begin to take root and grow.

If someone wanted to send a wonderful, valuable gift to you, they would first need to know where to send it. Similarly, for the best things in life to be yours you must provide them with a place to be, a way to get to you.

The person with many friends has made a place in his life for genuine friendship. The person who enjoys success in her career has created a special place in her life for that success to exist.

Whatever it is you desire, give it a place within you to be. Open yourself up to receive the very best, and you will.
