Don’t we all like them?
Don’t we all want to see them all the time?
What if we would know that they are always there?
And they are, you know.
We just don’t see them,
we don’t want to see them,
we don’t believe in them when the going gets tough.
We hold on to what goes wrong in that particular moment.
Once you see those negative things
– of which we will always have some in life because that’s life-
as merely clouds that pass before the sun in that clear blue sky, we will be able to deal with those clouds in a different way.
Because once you realize that they are just clouds, you have faith in the sun above them!
Even the strongest, darkest thunderstorm passes!
The sun is always there in the end!
It’s like flying: first you go through those bumpy cloudy patches and then once above the clouds, surprise – surprise, indeed the sun is shining!
So always remember the sun in your life.
Be grateful for everything you do have,
For all the things that do go well in your life,
For all the problems you are NOT having (and once you start thinking, there are a million things we do NOT have to worry about!)
We forget so easily and therefor it’s good to remind yourself every day of those blessings!
Write them down, be conscious about them, say THANK YOU out loud. I know it will feel silly in the beginning –and maybe you can warn those around you that you are not tripping 🙂 – but seriously, it will put your mind in a positive setting!
When you’re grateful, it becomes more and more difficult to dwell upon the irritations you are feeling. And be honest, most of the time, when you really take a step back, it’s mostly about trivial things we get all worked up about, like :
Who DARED merging into YOUR lane and arrive one split second before you now???
Why haven’t they replied to your email yet? Let’s face it, sometimes you wanted your answer even before the question popped into your mind, no????? Euh.. yes, indeed, be patient, the answer will come…
Why did it have to rain today??? Why today???? Of all days!?
There is nothing in the fridge!? Who ate MY food???
My favourite shirt is dirty…
This coffee is too cold, too hot…
You get my drift!
So let’s all take a deep breath,
Look up to the sky,
See the sun behind those dark clouds,
Believe the good stuff is already in your life!
Cherish it! It can be gone before you know it and then one day, you will long for what you had today!
Feel love and compassion instead of anger and irritation.
Life, and you too, will be a lot more fun and a lot easier to deal with!!
Wishing you all a very sunny sky!!! ( visible right now or still hiding behind some clouds)
