I am a strong supporter of positive thinking but that doesn’t mean being oblivious to negative circumstances. I really don’t believe that the world is all rainbows, unicorns and butterflies. I do believe, however, that no matter what the situation, we can move forward in the best possible way – even if that means choosing the lesser of two evils.
Every situation offers us options, some more obvious than others. We need to examine those options. What is it I can learn? What do I need to gain? What do I need to surrender? What do I need to leave behind? How do I persevere? These are all questions that I can ask myself so that I can continue to move in a positive direction.
The more honest I am with the person in the mirror, the clearer my vision will be as to who I am and who I am destined to become. It isn’t just about getting ahead, it’s about getting ahead and bringing the world up with me. If I want to see changes in my world, then I must become the change I want to see. I can’t expect kindness, if I am unkind. I can’t expect generosity if I am overly selfish. I still might receive those things from positive thinking people but I shouldn’t expect them.
Our worldview is a reflection of ourselves. The world isn’t perfect and neither am I, but I think it is beautiful and so are you. I am glad you are in my world. I know that when you find your true gifts, the world will be a much better place.
Take care, stay well, and be safe.
