This morning as I sat in the grass, searching for 4 leaf clovers I thought about the search… not just the search for special clovers, but the search in general.
As I searched, I found myself ever so focused on what I was looking for. All other “things” were on the sidelines as I searched for these elusive clovers. I found one, and kept searching. I found another and continued to search. I found 3 then 4 and 5 and 6 and I kept searching. I found that I kept finding 4 leaf clovers until I decided to stop searching.
The same can be said about: Love, Success, Opportunity, Wisdom, Peace, Knowledge, Answers and everything else that one might search for.
You will continue to find what you seek until you decide to stop looking for it.
You may not always be happy with what you find or how you find it… but the choice is always there to keep searching.
The search won’t always be easy, depending on what it is you are looking for. Sometimes you have to dig deep and go below the surface to find it. Sometimes it is right in front of you, but for whatever reason, you just can’t see it. The thing is… you will eventually find it for as long as you don’t give up searching for it.
For me this morning … the answer is 20. I found 20 four leaf clovers this morning before I decided that I had found enough, became happy with what I had found and stopped looking. 🙂
