It’s All About Your Perspective

Going through my blog’s Instagram feed (Follow here if you haven’t already), one of the people I’m following posted:

Today was the absolute worst day ever

And don’t try to convince me that

There’s something good in every day

Because, when you take a closer look

This world is a pretty evil place

Even if

Some good does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last

And it’s not true that

It’s all in the mind and heart

Because

True happiness can be obtained

Only if one’s surroundings are good

It’s not true that good exists

I’m sure you can agree that

The reality

Creates

My attitude

It’s all beyond my control

And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day

Have you ever had one of these days? When things just don’t seem to be going your way.

Now go back and read it. But, this time, read it from bottom to top.

See what happens when you change your perspective? Changing your attitude can have an impact. If something doesn’t seem to be going your way, change the way you’re looking at it.

Happy Monday!
