Sometime these days I came across some ancient wise words:
“Plant a thought and you’ll pick an action;
Plant an action and you’ll pick a habit;
Plant a habit and you’ll pick a character;
Plant a character and you’ll pick a destiny.” – Random Wise Ancient Dude or Dudette
This is exactly what I believe and what I’m trying to do. We see people all around us that are not happy with their lives, but they do want a happy life. But a happy life won’t come up out of the blue… we need to work for it. Also, what a happy life means? I’ve also noticed that a happy life for someone means a horrible life for someone else. When something is the same, what makes it different? It’s just a matter of perspective.
Practicing the ability to view different perspectives not only that gives you the ability to change the way you see your life, but it also changes the way you see other people because you’ll make a habit to see multiple perspectives about the same thing, one of them matching theirs. When you can see someone’s life through their eyes, you’ll stop judging them so harsh.
Don’t worry, sh*t will still be part of your life, but you’ll laugh at it instead of crying. That sh*t might be seen as a cake. Maybe it’s always a cake and you see it as a sh*t.
What do you choose to see? A sh*tty cake or a cake-y sh*t?
