Our mind can create an illusion …
I was sitting at my desk looking out the window and thinking ...it sure is gloomy outside.
Fits my mood I am okay with a gloomy day. I didn’t want to see the sun shining anyway.
After working for several hours with an occasional glance out the window… making sure it was still cloudy outside. I decided to get some fresh air.
As I walked out the door I was immediately hit with an absolutely beautiful day!
Big beautiful white clouds floated in a sea of bright blue skies.
I had spent half the day thinking it was gloomy outside going about my work.If I had taken a minute to really see outside my window I would noticed that it was a beautiful perfect day outside. Because I wasn't feeling like sunshine, it didn't mean the sun wasn’t out. I created this illusion of gloom, sadness, and despair.
I wasted half a day in this false space… we have a choice when we wake up. We can look at the negative and waste our time in thoughts that are not going to give us anything good to look at. We can place a cloud over the sun or choose the bright perspective.
Think about it … wasting time on negative thoughts, on people that don’t matter, is time you will never get back. Choose the sunshine even if you are not feeling it. After a few minutes you will see the bright rays! Make it a good day change your perspective and it will change your life!
