Our life is like the fortune too. We all know the glass is half full, but with modern media, it is more fun and dramatic to point out the bad things and gossip about it. We gossip about celebrities gaining or losing weight, gaining or losing lovers, whose baby daddy is cheating, etc. This is actually taking too much of our precious time here on earth. These are first world problems, really. "What dress looks better on me? The red one or the silver one? Oh, I don't know what to wear!" Some folks would to love to be in that dilemma. Choices are a privilege.
The rose bush provides pollen for the bees, food for birds and insects, and the thorns protect the species so it can procreate and we can smell their divine aroma for generations to come. I am rejoicing that the thorn bushes have roses to celebrate. Let us celebrate our lives in this manner. Each day, we can smile, even when not feeling so good, or we have a job that is not our dream job. Hey! We woke up! We actually have a job! For me, when I feel like my waitressing evening is starting to become a disaster, I put a litle glitter on my temples. Then, when I pass the mirrors in the restaurant, I notice my sparkling self! I cannot have a bad day when I have glitter on!
What do you do to shift your point of view? How do you honor your awesome self, rather than your grumpy self? I want to hear from you!
