Day 426



I love that saying so much that I have it on the back of my business cards.

But it's so true!  It's all about perception.  Don't you think?

I often use the example of cancer.  Two people are diagnosed with the same cancer on the same day with the same prognosis.  They live in the same world. After the initial shock and mourning period, one person rolls into a ball and lives their life in dread and gloom.  The other stands up,  puts their shoulders back and lives every day to the fullest.  One person experiences the world as dark and full of dread and despair, while the other experiences the world as light and full of celebration and hope.  Whose world would you rather live in?

We experience the world not as it is, but as we are.  Yep.. That's my Sunday Citar ...

  1. Lovely, and so so true.

    My sister has a phrase. "Well, it's alright for you......". (Drives me nuts.) Same genes. Same schools. Same environment, same nurturing. Different outlook.
