It is so easy to focus on what doesn't feel good, that's how our attention usually orientates. However, the practice of focusing on what feels good and savoring it, can lead to a more balanced view of ourselves and our lives, and bring more pleasure to it. Often when something good happens, we brush it off and move on to the next thing, without pausing and letting it permeate us.

Put your phone away
Take it in, give yourself time to absorb what’s good around you. That instagram sunset photo isn’t going to make you feel better. Taking it in will. Smile at the person next to you in that beautiful quiet silence, before thinking about what hashtags to put in. Savor it. This is your one shot at life.

Love this tract! I agree focusing on the positive is not denying that the negative does not exist. It just expands the positive further. I also heard something like: Speaking highly of self is good, Enjoying pleasure is smart, Savoring pleasure is wise. Keep on expanding!! ❤️☮️🍀
