It's All About Perspective ... Remember You Can Choose the Outcome

By Elaine Russell posted 03-04-2019 10:04

Perspective is everything .... 

I didn't write the short poem below, it is not something new, in fact, I have seen it multiple times over the years on various social media platforms.
However, I thought I'd share it today as a reminder that we can choose our outcome, our attitude, and how we function both professionally and personally. 

Hope you take a few moments to read: 
Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There’s something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.
And it’s not true that
It’s all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be attained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
The reality
My attitude
It’s all beyond my control
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say
Today was a very good day

Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day.

If you made it this far, and you have read the above both forwards than backwards, I hope it brings you some perspective and you ask yourself, is my glass half full or half empty ... remember it's your choice to make!
