Perception. We only see what we want to see. Ever look at the exact same thing as a friend and saw completely different things? “That’s a horse.” “No, silly. That’s clearly a swan in the water.” How is that? We see things differently.
We create our own reality. You know there’s 3 sides to a story, your side, their side, and the truth. Why? Because our perceptions are different.
“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are” – Anais Nin
And I’m not only talking about the things you see with your natural eyes, but also in your interactions with people. Have you ever seen someone so beautiful, you know, the model type and thought “They must have it easy. They must get everything handed to them. Life must be great.” When in actuality, they are constantly berated with thoughts of low self-esteem, self-doubt, and loneliness. You never know what someone has to deal with because you are not them and don’t see life as they see.
I really believe I was born with rose-colored glasses on. I always see the best in people, even when they show me dirt. But that is my personal choice. Because I CHOOSE to see positive things and put out positive energy, I see and receive nothing but positivity.
I had a conversation with my husband after reading something that said “If you have haters, then you’re doing something right.” And I said to him, “Clearly I’m a failure because I don’t have any haters.” And he replied, “Yes you do. You’re just too nice to see it.” And I thought to myself, perhaps, but because I choose to see nothing but positivity, I don’t even realize if someone dislikes me.
Today, I challenge you to create your own reality.
What ever a man thinks in his heart, so is he. – Proverbs 23 : 7
CHOOSE POSITIVITY. I’m a firm believer of whatever you put out, you will receive. Choose to receive good things and they will come!!! See the good in everything!!! Cheers to your half full cup!!! Get rid of your stinkin’ thinkin’!!!
