Learning From Life

Every encounter we ever have has the possibility to bring with it learning and positivity… Every. Single. One.

Even if you aren’t aware at the time, do what you can to reflect – for in this reflection you will find a many beautiful gems with which you will become a stronger person, more in tune with you truths, and more fit to live the richest life imaginable.

Look On The Bright Side

Yes, I am one of those…  I am thankful to have a glass, forget whether there is something in it or not (because, it is a glass, and that’s a great deal more than most might have.)

I’m an uber-optimist.  I see the good in everything, beauty in unlikely places, and positive lessons even when faced with Life’s darker depths.  It’s gotten me into trouble on occasion, no doubt – I am also known to be a giver (and not the best receiver.)  Codependents might recognize the ring of that bell!

But honestly…I’d rather air on the side of seeing the GOOD in things, and forgiving when “hate” implores it is my only option.  

I’m not blissfully unaware.  

Nor am I above having bad days, moody moments, fits of tears, or overall stress.  

Neither are my lenses completely “rosy” in the oblivious sense of the term – I do see rightly, and I will see both sides, for better and for worse…

But my focus?  My FOCUS is going to lean as positively as I can get it to because anger, negativity, hate, and frustration are toxic.  They injure ourselves as much as others – “holding onto poison,” as they say, isn’t so far from the truth.

So even when I am having a rough day, or I’m disappointed in myself…  Even if something didn’t go “right”...I will do my best to remember I have a glass to begin with, and that’s quite a start, I’d say…  I also have a faucet, and it appears to be a limitless wellspring…how about that?

Blessed, and then some. 

Leaving The Comfort Zone

In order to grow, achieve your success, learn more, love deeper…you have to leave your comfort zone.

It really isn’t a question of whether you must, but rather when you will…

It can be terrifying, it can feel debilitating…but the challenge and promise of the unknown will bestow some of Life’s most incredible gifts.

Take a deep breath, and step outside the lines.
