. . . I am focused on making that "mode of perception" the dominant one in my universe
Many of us are surrounded by dark clouds -- finding the unicorn within (and being happy you found it !!)
will jump start good things in your life, truly
this is not the same as avoiding or denying problematic situations nor is it "creating your own reality"
because, to me, this is synonomous with "denying reality"
but, instead, it is about seeing solutions first, because there are opportunities for solutions
working this way, living this way
. . . will not only make your short-term situation better
ultimately, it will set the ball in motion to change your life, permanently, for the better, too
