Many around you want to point out 'reality' to you. They say "Face the facts. Look at what is" And we say to you, if you are able to see only what is then, by the Law of Attraction, you will create only more of what is. You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what is in order to attract something different or something more.
There will never be a shortage of doubters to point out that an idea probably won't work, or that the way you approach your life is foolish. One of the most significant things you can do for yourself is to stop listening to others' opinions concerning your life. Thank them for their advice and do what you need to do, for you.
No one really knows what's best for you except you, others are talking from their own experiences and fears. If they are telling you to 'take a reality check', you have to know that it is their reality they are talking about, not yours. You know what is best for you, what you want and need, they do not.
If your reality is not the way you want it to be, then change it. If you look around and find that you are lonely, broke and/or depressed, only you can change what is. You deserve more than that. This may be your life at this moment, but don't just assume that this is the only way it can be. Stop erecting barriers that stop you from moving forward. Put your thoughts beyond the little box you are existing in and try being thankful for what you do have. Send up the vibration of gratitude and you will most assuredly attract something more. It's the Law.
