So, many, many good things have happened recently. I’ve been thinking about them, and the good things that haven’t happened yet but are on the way, and a sense of calm and relaxation spreads over me. While I’m sure bad things happen, I’m truly determined that they don’t happen to me, and I’m more willing to accept the good things that are consistently coming into my life than I previously was.

Why wouldn’t anyone be willing to accept good things into their life? Because often we’re afraid. We might be concerned that it’s a precursor to bad things, or that we don’t deserve it, or that if we allow ourselves to get excited about something and it doesn’t happen, then we’ll be disappointed.

The fact of the matter is that none of that has to be true. I’ve determined that only good things will happen to me. Even bad things will lead to better ones by extension, so I’ll not have to worry about them. I deserve only good things in my life; I’ve earned them. And I’ll enjoy my excitement, and celebrate my good fortune every day. To paraphrase part of Christian Larson’s Optimist’s Creed, “I promise myself I will be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. I will think well of myself and proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds. I will live in faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.”

Today I feel so sure of the goodness in my life, the friends I have, the wealth I’ve earned, the health I build, and the joy I have the potential to spread. Thank you all who are my friends, as you are the true wealth in my life. Thank you Tivoli for the wonderful gym that I take advantage of on a daily basis. Thank you for the financial stability I’m finally realizing. Thank you for this life that I can use to bring good feelings, warmth, and genuine caring to the world. Thank you for the $20,000 unexpected income I’m receiving by the end of this month. Thank you for the magnificent trips I have planned and the prodigious events that will occur on them.

I feel nothing but gratitude today and endless amounts of joy, and while this update was going to go into other, less cheery subjects, I think I’d rather wish every single one of you the same feelings of joy, abundance, and pure happiness that I’m feeling this very moment. I know many of you are dealing with death, frustration, illness, or any other number of problems, but my intension for all of you is that for at least one minute on this day, you can feel yourself full of light, love, and the assurance that everything can only ever work out perfectly.

All the Love in the Universe,

Kaoru

EDIT: Found this interesting just minutes after I wrote this and noticed I wasn’t the only person being optimistic today.
