“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” -Roald Dahl
When we change our perspective we change everything about our experience. A lovely example of this was during the busy morning commute into London a train guard called Stewart on the district & circle line announced each train with joy and enthusiasm entertaining us all and forcing us all to smile. His view was similar to mine in that if you are compelled to do something you have the choice to enjoy it or moan about it. His positive energy was infectious on the platform benefiting both himself and everyone else who came into contact with him. Yet on other platforms the trains were announced in more despondent tones by the other guards. This is an example of how two people see the same job.
We may have no choice about going to work for eight hours but we have a choice on how we want to experience that time period. Thus when your perspective changes time flies by and it almost seems like fun and not work. Do not delay in finding joy in all that you do and you will become a supercharged magnet for positive experiences.
How we think and feel is really what shapes our day rather than the things that happen. Start focusing on all the good in your life and then expand out to all that is good in the world. There is more kindness and good in the world but we have to attach our awareness to it rather than following the crowd or being spoon feed by the media.
Life is really a mind game change your mind change your life.
