That means, if you feel your life is filled with problems, then it’s not that it is, it’s just that’s what you think life is. One big problem.
And if you think like that, then you will notice them wherever you are.

I am reminded of a friend who complained she wasn’t meeting anyone of marriageable material. She told this to her lawyer who asked, “What are you looking for?”
After she told him, he smiled and said, “That’s me.”
They have been married (happily) for over 25 years now. She couldn’t see what was right in front of her because she believed she would never find him.
How would you like life to be?
