Different way of looking at things

There are so many things in life that could frustrate and upset you. You could feel like things will never workout the way you expect them to. You could feel like the cosmos are going against you.

I look at my backyard and realize that I should be frustrated. The clover has taken over. Now granted I know that I haven’t done a ton to improve the quality of the yard. I can’t get mad at the yard when I don’t put the effort into making it look the way I wish it looked. I get it!

But, then I look again! Now I see that the clover has attracted butterflies, bumblebees and bunnies (sorry I didn’t get a picture of Easter or Peter that’s what we call the rabbits who visit out yard). So it isn’t all bad.

Some times what you have to do is look at life from a different angle. You have to stop and reflect on the positives. Now I’m not saying that I’ll never work on getting rid of the weeds in my backyard. Just as I need to work on working out to improve my health/physical shape. Just like I need to keep working on my relationship with the boys and with Richard, all things take work, but doesn’t mean that they are bad. It just means that sometimes you have to look at it from a different angle to see the good parts.

Take the time to realize that even negative moments help you grow as a person. Take the time to stop and breathe and realize that there isn’t totally bad, just as there isn’t total good.  Look for the butterflies and bees…. they flit in fast and are fleeting, but they are there.
