Reflection of the Week: "A man too careful of danger, liveth in continual torment; but a cheerful expecter of the best, hath a fountain of joy within him." - Martin Tupper
We all know that one person that seems to weather the storms of life with a genuine smile on their face. It seems as though nothing could break their positive outlook on life itself.
We all also know that one person that could have just won a million dollars but chose to complain about the taxes due rather than to celebrate.
This week's proverb is a reminder of the choice we have in creating our reality.
When our minds are preoccupied with the negative; when our fear of the uncertainty takes over our narrative, we create drama where no drama would otherwise exist.
On the flip side, if we can find the silver lining; if we can foresee a positive outcome, we create a perpetual state of joy in our hearts. Joy naturally lends itself to gratitude which moves us to love which the world absolutely needs more of right now.
