That Is Where We Are

“Wherever our attention is, that is where we are. Our attention, our awareness, breathes life into that which it rests upon. Place your attention on something, and it grows in your life. Take your attention away from something, and it fades away.
...Work, money, worry, shopping, exercise, lip balm, Twinkies - the list is endless. None of these items have power in themselves; their power is derived from the power of our attention.”  
~ from Meditations from the Mat by Rolf Gates

I have a feeling I've shared this quote before. It's one of my all-time favorites. It caught my eye as I was scanning the study for Dad's Important Papers in the Brown Envelope. I've been walking around saying, I can't find the envelope I can't find the envelope...

Needless to say, I can't find the envelope. 

Where am I placing my attention?

ps. all mojo/prayers/chants welcome in finding the damn envelope!
