Time Conquers All
I saw this clock the other day and thought 'How frickin' depressing!' It really made my mood sink. About 15 minutes later, after stomping around in vile agitation in my head, I remembered, I usually thought of that as a positive notion, and had in fact written a post about it previously.
So I did a poll on Facebook (before you read other comments, let me know if you see this as positive or negative type of thing), and there were only 3 negatives in a sea of positives.
That is the lesson. Perception is 99% of the problem, or as Jack Sparrow would say "The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem." There is no reality, only perception. If we can't change things, we need to work on our headspace about it.
I was watching the Mindy Project and someone said 'Bad things are always going to happen to you, you can't change that. But it's how you handle it that matters, and you handled that pretty well'.
So I am focusing on the Niki Lauda life lesson, because 'all the girls love Niki Lauda'...
Linking up this old post for #ThankfulThursday as I needed to reread it myself. There's a world imploding around me and I'm not able to do much to make it right for the person. I want to, it's just not something I can fix. The good news is, that in time it will heal and I need to focus on that thought, while I help them through the horrible transition. I am thankful that ultimately, time will heal this.
