Our minds are so powerful! I read a quote today that said: “Your perspective will either become your prison or your passport.” Oh how true that is! When we live such repetitive and mundane lives, we lose that spark of contrast. If every hour is like the last, how will we ever know what true pleasure feels like? As cliche as it is, sometimes we need the hurt to appreciate the happiness.
Admit it, we all know someone who can look at a field of wildflowers and only see weeds… But I bet you also know someone who can look at a prickly cactus and still find the unique beauty within the sharp thorns. Perception is a key ingredient to gratitude, and without gratitude there is no joy! It’s all a balance…
I know first hand that when you’re in the thick of it, and life just can’t seem to give you a break, it feels damn near impossible to see the good! Healing is not linear and it’s definitely not quick; but even the smallest shift in perspective can give your soul so much freedom. Let go of the shit that’s suffocating you and allow yourself to open up to new things.
Sometimes life doesn’t go according to your plan. Not because you don’t deserve it, but because you actually deserve so much better! So keep searching for that glimmer of light, no matter how long and dark the tunnel might be. And open your eyes to the radiance around you!
Don’t forget to be thankful for those dreary thunderstorms that remind you just how beautiful the sunshine really is.
Until next time,
Promise me you’ll look for it, darling?
