“Thank you God, for this good life and forgive us if we don’t love it enough.” ~ Garrison Keillor
My motto lately is that life is good. LIFE IS GOOD – it really is. It all depends how we look at life. Are we looking through negative glasses or positive glasses.
I recently went to the eye doctor to get contacts. And of course, my vision has changed in the past 2 years since I’ve seen him. He is always been a quiet, reserved kind of doctor. But I had the pleasure of making him laugh out loud about something I said about my age and eyesight being hand in hand. He busted out laughing because he is the same age as I am! Who knew?? (smile)
But getting back to the story – I thought is was funny that my eye sight is negative to wear contacts, but to get reading glasses I have to buy positive glasses!?! Now how confusing is that? Well not really confusing. If I am wearing negative contacts I need to counter act that with a positive to read. Isn’t life exactly like that too? Sometimes we need to think about the positive when we are in a negative situation or a bad time in our lives. This is what I know….We chose what glasses to put on and in that choice, we will either surround ourselves with more negatives or more positives. I personally choose the POSITIVE.
When you are having a rough time, going through a storm, dealing with difficult people, or even just feeling down – say to yourself “What glasses am I wearing right now?” “I can’t see clearly with those glasses on, so I’m switching to the other glasses!”
Always know – you will make it through whatever problem you are going through. It is part of life. It is a part of growing your soul. But you can choose what glasses to wear!!!
Love and Light,
