I had this conversation with 2 different people yesterday:
How a perspective of life can alter the course of a day/week/month/year
It's really a phenomenon to me. I mean, I have always been a very positive person. Otherwise, I have found it easy to look at that half-full glass.
The interesting thing about this concept is I am noticing that I am surrounding myself with those types of people as well. The negativity and expectation of 'bad' in life is really draining. While I realize we can view the world through rose-colored glasses, I dare to say that no matter how bad life gets...there is purpose and something to be gained out of it. (Always easier said once you are past the tough parts)
I started thinking about my friendships. I consider myself very blessed to have a few people in my close circle that hear my heart, share theirs, and offer beautiful and timely advice to me. I also realize that in a lifetime, I will only get a few so each one is to be cherished, nurtured and appreciated.
Reminds me of the song my dad taught me when I was in first grade and started having 'friend issues'...
Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold...
