For most of my life I have focused very much on what I don't want - where I don't want to be, what I don't want to be like, what I don't want to do, etc. - and given very little thought to what I DO want. Those who believe in the Law of Attraction would say that doing this has kept me in the position I am in. By focusing on the things I don't want to be, I have actually been spending time and energy keeping those very things attached to me. I think it is time for a change. I'm changing the old mental tape (it really should be mp3 by now) and making sure I am looking towards what I do want. Let's see if it works.
