Learning to Appreciate
I’m pretty sure most of you have been asked if you are more pessimistic or more optimistic? Are you a glass-half-full kind of person or a glass-half-empty? Most of us like to believe that we are optimistic, making the most out of bad situations and predicaments that life throws our way. I know I try my best to. But life, well life can be a b*tch sometimes, can’t it? At least that’s the pessimistic way of looking at it, in my opinion. As each day passes by, and I learn more and more, I try to take on a new perspective to literally everything, even the lows that life brings. Life is nothing more than an educator, constantly teaching us through every single experience we have; the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly. Most of us, myself included love to celebrate, appreciate, and be full of joy when life is up but when life is down, we complain, look for excuses, become bitter and difficult to be around, and depending on how bad the situation, may even lose or question our faith. Any of this sound familiar? Maybe this has been you or someone you know. No worries, it happens to all of us. We just have to keep in mind that nothing lasts forever and that this too, shall pass.
