Putting Life Into Perspective

I pose this question  for you to really think about (that is if you haven’t already pondered this question before).  What do you allow in your spirit (your space so to speak) that throws you off-balance?  These elements or things can be negative thoughts, individuals, emotionally charged reactions, doubt, fear, self-pity, denial, negative conversations or gossip, and unnecessary stress to name a few.  All these things that I listed and others not listed can impact your perspective on life and influence your decisions.  In reading a quote by George Bernard Shaw I realized that it is not so much that these things enter into our life it is how much weight and life we give to them.  The quote by Shaw says, “Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most.”

In life you have choices that you can make on whether to feed the negative crap in life or to starve it.  So in essence we all know that different things be they positive or negative will come into our lives that is just life.  But the end result of that “negative” thing coming in ultimately lies within oneself.  That coincidentally is why there is a billion dollar industry based solely off “Self” help information.  No one can bring about a change more powerful and beneficial in your life like you can!

  1. Try not to feed on it. The hard part is not to allow it to feed on us.
