I’m at my happy place… the ocean. This is my favorite week of the year. I spend hours reflecting, dreaming, and meditating, which restores my mind, body, heart, soul, and spirit.
This week I share with you a wonderful poem on Perspective.
In all aspects of our lives, our perspective and our mindset is our single most important tool in our toolkit. How wonderful it is that you have complete control over yours!
Have an amazing week!
Directions: Read the entire poem from top to bottom. Then when you are finished, immediately read it again from bottom to top.
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,
The world is a pretty evil place.
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 obtained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
It’s all beyond my control
And you’ll never in a million years here me say that
Today was a good day
