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
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
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
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.
