It’s sometimes very tempting to look at the glass as half-empty, instead of half-full. It almost becomes like second nature to us.
I’m not sure where this comes from because when we were kids, our outlook was always positive and sunny. We were always happy. Each new day brought another day of adventure, wonderment, and a chance to express ourselves through play. We felt like we could do anything, and be anything.
When we were kids, no one could convince us that we couldn’t slay the dragon, conquer that tall mountain, or move an object just by mind-power alone. We believed it, and that was good enough for us.
But everything seems to change when we become adults. Our perspectives change. Our attitudes change. It’s harder now to see the good in things; we almost have to force ourselves to look at things in a positive light.
The people around us also seem to have adopted this negative attitude. The unfortunate thing is that we’ve become so accustomed to it that when we cross paths with a person who’s positive and sunny, and who seems to embrace life to the fullest, we see them as a rarity. Yes, at the same time it’s refreshing, and we wish we could be more like them, but we don’t often see this attitude as something attainable.
We need to remember that, just like when we were kids, if we simply believe we can achieve something — we can!
Faith was easy when we were kids. Happiness wasn’t a luxury, it was a way of life. Our minds were pure — free from contamination.
But even as adults, we can still adopt a positive attitude. It’s never too late!!! Today, we can start looking at the glass as half-full, instead of half-empty.
We can learn to embrace life again. We can begin to alter the course of our lives once we start believing in ourselves again — believing we CAN conquer that dragon, that mountain, that immovable object.
There’s something simple, yet beautiful, about believing. Things start materializing when we simply believe. Things start changing and shifting in our favor when we believe.
I want to encourage you to not give up on your dreams! Dreams really do come true, if you simply believe!
