“You can’t change Reality, but you can alter your perspective”

It’s something my brother happened to say the other day that got me thinking. Sometimes it can be so easy to dwell on the bad things or bad situations that happen to us. But a lot of the time we can’t change these things; we can’t go back in time to alter the events leading up to it. But what we can change is our perspective: the way we view it. We can choose to look at it negatively- to look at everything that’s crappy about this crappy situation, or we can go the opposite way and look on the positives. And it’s actually amazing the things you can positive about. I’ve read stories of people battling life threatening illnesses and their positivity never ceases to astound me.

Just because the positives might be hard to see, it doesn’t mean they don’t exist- the key is to never give up looking for them.

Thanks for reading
