seeing is..?

Antoine de Saint Exupery said, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea."
Saint Ex had it right; images are powerful. Leaders know that the best way to get people to follow is to create an intricate, vivid picture of the goal. The old saying is "seeing is believing". We need to start 'seeing' what we want, instead of hoping we get it. Our minds tend to form a path toward whatever goal we focus on most. Seeing is reality, even, or perhaps especially, mental visualization.

Today I see that I have been married to my best friend for 30 years.

As we focus on wanting to be each others best friends, wanting to share our love and our lives together, appreciating each other for all that we bring to each others lives, our children's lives and allow each other to be individually whole, our love grows and manifests into new and wonderful beginnings every day!

Happy Anniversary to my Best Friend!
