The reality is that life is s choice, a choice in perception. We can choose to focus all our energy, love, focus and ambitions on things that bring us happiness and joy or what brings is pain and misery.
Whatever it is that we may chose becomes our pattern and habit, the go to for every experience. Once the mind has been made to focus on the thorns, it’s all that will be seen. To change your perception, a conscious effort must be made. A conscious effort requires work to make it manifest.
Now we find ourselves back to the beginning. What life do you truly want to live, the one full of roses or the one full of thorns? What will you do to make it happen?
It’s up to you.
