A shift in perspective

Lately , I’ve been in a rut. Unhappy with my performance at my job, aspects of my social life and more.  But then today during lunch it hit me, why bother complaining about all the things I don’t like? Who exactly is that benefiting? The answer is simple, no one.

So starting today, I’ve decided to make a list with three columns each day. One for all the good things in my life, the next for the things I want to change, and the last one is for my goals or dreams.

That last column I think is the most important. It’s so easy to get caught up in the everyday stresses and the little things that can take away from your joy. One of my favorite teachers in high school always said “life sucks then you die”. And as pessimistic as that sounds, for a long time I thought that was true. Go to school to get a job. Work to get a paycheck to pay bills. Repeat repeat repeat.

I’m just now coming to realize that it’s not. Sure, it can be bad sometimes. But there’s so much more to live for.
