#TBT - Be Grateful - Finding Hearts

The best part about looking back for #TBT, is that you re-discover things you had set aside.  Today's Throwback Thursday is a wonderful little video that I just had to share.

There's a line in it where she says that "whatever you are looking for, you will find".  I think this goes both ways: look for good in life?  You'll find it.  Look for bad?  You'll find it.

I heard a story once about a salesman who walked up to a man in a new town.  He asked him: "What are the people like here?"  The man asked him, "What were the people like in the town you just left?"  He told him they were negative, unpleasant, etc.  His reply "That's what folks are like here."  Another salesman walked up asking the same question.  Repeating his question about what folks were like where he came from, this salesman replied that "People were easy to talk to, friendly, etc"  The man's final reply was that THAT was what people were like here.

You get what you expect.  You get back what you put out.  Not 100% of the time, but enough that there is value in being positive and thinking the best of situations and of people.

This video by Hailey Bartholomew, is called "Finding Love". It's 2 1/2 minutes and lovely. Take a moment to watch it today. I was glad I did!

Quilty hugs on this lovely day, Carrie
