How are you walking through life?
How do you see the world?
Most people are drifting through life without ever really looking at what is going on around them…Where are they? They are in a fog, a self delusional fog, where they are so focused on the circumstances of their life that and the negative attitude associated with it that they are essentially zombies.
Nothing impresses them. Nothing intrigues them. Nothing sparks their imagination. Nothing gets them to say “Wow! Isn’t that interesting?”
These are the people that life happens to, they are always complaining about how life is so hard, why does this always happen to me, nothing exciting ever really happens.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
— Albert Einstein
Look around you!
Do you not see all the amazing things happening in the world, all the technology, the medical advances, everyday nature? Kids are great at this, walking around in curious amazement, asking questions, wondering, imagining. So why does that stop for most people. I don’t think I ever grew up, that is one thing that I never lost. Other parents look at me a wonder “What’s wrong with him? He is the biggest kid on the playground.” Or “Look at him, a grown man sledding down the hill.” But what they think of me is none of my business.
What I find is that when you see everything as a miracle you are much more open to new ideas, different ways of doing everything. You can see things from a different point of view, admit that maybe you don’t have all the answers, which opens the doors to unlimited possibilities.
Open your eyes to the world around you, start imagining again, start questioning. If you aren’t where you want to be and you need to make some changes, start with yourself. Nothing changes until you change. And the only thing that you actually have control over are your thoughts, and the way you see everything in your life. Problem or Opportunities? How you look at everything and how you respond are up to you, take back control and open your eyes to amazing new things.
Change the way you look at life and you will change your life.
