THE POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE
What do you see when faced with a challenge or difficulty? How do you take it? Is it an opportunity to grow or a difficulty to put you down?
EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR GOOD THEY SAY. I KNOW, SEEING THE GOOD IN THE MOMENT IS NOT IN OUR HANDS BUT BELIEVING IN IT, IS.
And that is so Right! Often, we see the world with our own pair of eyes, our own color of mind in a specific period of time. If we stop and reflect, we can notice this very well.
If one door closes on us, we get depressed. If we do not get the job we wanted, the shopping item on our list, or land into a difficult situation like a road accident, miss a chance at something or fall into a tragedy of life like losing a loved one, ending a long relationship, or something of the sort – we surround our self and our mind with the vicious circle of unhappy thoughts and feelings.
You find what you want to find. It is often Hard but not Impossible to SEE the GOOD or FIND the GOOD. There are times when the good is not clear and apparent and sometimes you will never know what was the good in a happening in life. Moreover, you do not control external situations and happenings occurring in your life. Infact, you cannot control them. But what can you control then?
You can control how you look at them and how you behave towards them after they have happened. That is TRULY AND TOTALLY in YOUR HANDS. That is YOUR CHOICE.
KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON THE GOOD STUFF AND EVERYTHING ELSE WILL BLUR
You must know this if you have taken pictures with a camera. When you focus on what is close to you, everything else fades out in the background and when you change the focus to what is in the distance, what is near fades out.
In my own personal life, I was not able to move to a different location myself. When I knocked at many doors, I found them closed. Some of these doors related to work opportunities. I could not understand why and felt frustrated thinking, imagining and believing that the world has closed on me. I cannot move forward in life no matter how much I try. I could not see the good in all that was happening to me at that time. And then I realized something deep down. I realized it in my soul once my mother left me to rest in peace. I could see how what I saw as limitations were blessings to me. How I got the opportunity to be there for my mother and do as little as I could do for her in her short life compared to many other people around me. Yes, it was an opportunity to remain and spend and give back to my mother to later find peace in my heart that I had not left her alone when she most needed me.
I had the belief of everything happens for the good even before but when life got really difficult, it was shaken. My closest and dearest support people and friends made me remember that every dark cloud has a silver lining. And it is right to say that such a big event and tremendous realization brought me face to face with this belief once again. It strengthened and reinforced it.
Difficult times will come and difficult times will go. What matters is how we respond to them and behave while we are in these difficult times. Do we see the good or start focusing on the bad?
It all starts with a simple Belief! Start Believing in Good! Share and inspire with your comments.
