I have to admit I was surfing Pinterest this morning. I have several quotes on there. I like to see what others are posting as I am finding new things to think about. And, even though there are many quotes that I have heard many times, like a favorite song from my childhood, many things are worth repeating.
I had written a blog about Rome NOT being built in a day. A reader commented that she in fact had a long way to go.
When I feel like the road is long and there doesn’t seem to be much progress, I spend time thinking about how far I have come.
I do this with a walk. I do this with a project. I do this when I get impatient with myself for NOT finishing all the ‘to do items’ on my ‘to do list’.
So much of our moods, our feelings of self-worth is what we tell ourselves. I use to think about all the things I don’t know regarding my job. Now I think about all I the things I have learned and how far I have come.
Simply taking a different view. Finding a more positive perspective can make all the difference in whether we are happier, more relaxed and keeping a positive attitude in our lives and ourselves.
For me, I would prefer to look up instead of looking down.
