Life offers hits and hurrays. I think it’s funny how I often I seem to focus on the hits.
Just the other day it was the most perfect sunny and 70° day and instead of soaking it up I found myself thinking how summer was almost over and fall (cold weather) was approaching.
I know summer is coming to a close, but why focus on that when the sun is shining on me today? Turns out I’m pretty normal and many of us choose to pay closer attention to the negative when it comes into our thoughts.
The good news is that we get to choose what we focus on and we choose our perspective. I would never suggest that you ignore the hits life brings your way. After all they’re real and they do effect your life. You gotta watch where you’re walking and don’t want to have your head in the clouds, but if your head is down all the time you’re gonna miss out on some amazing things.
So the next time you have a negative thought ask yourself…what’s the upside of this? Then see what happens.
I tried it myself.
Looking down….Summer is almost over and the cold is approaching.
Looking up…there are so many fun things coming this month and I can’t wait for the fun to happen.
I felt better. Immediately. Then enjoyed the rest of my day in the sun.
What’s so fun about this month?
All I can say is HURRAY! I’d love to see you there. xoxo, E.G.-
