“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” ― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
10 Good Reminders to Make Your Day Brighter
All too often we spend too much time wondering whether or not others approve of us and our choices in life; whether or not they will confide us when times are dark, especially when we running low on hope. All too often we attribute our sense of happiness to other people and things… whereas the truth stays the same – happiness is an inside job.
It’s about refraining. It’s all about changing perspective. In times of great despair, anxiety, and anger… try to look at the situation at hand from a slightly different angle.
Take a deep breath and pat yourself on a shoulder! Celebrate your wins. Big and small ones. Every single day!
Remove hypothetical curtains off your eyes – don’t let the beauty of the world and people in it pass you by when you are too busy concentrating on a surface of your phone screen; look up! Look up and notice something beautiful you might be surrounded by right this moment.
