Not every day can be lollipops and giggles… but no matter what life is throwing at you, there is beauty to be seen. The negativity in a day is in reality just a small part of our life. It will pass soon and we will look back and wonder why we stressed so much over that tiny little moment of our lives. During those moments of stress, hardship and despair it’s extremely difficult to see anything other … but if we can manage if even for a moment to change our focus … we may be able to also gain some perspective on that moment.
Seeing obstacles for what they instead of how they make us feel at that moment… feelings of dread, fear, sorrow, anger, etc dissipate more quickly and the situation becomes more manageable.
How to do this?
Stay aware. Be open to seeing every thing in life with more than one point of view. Make a conscience effort daily to integrate this way of seeing into your life. Take each moment as it comes and if possible find a way to step back from that moment that brings you such stress and anxiety to reflect on what is real and what is made up with emotions.
