Do you ever wonder what your life would look like through someone else’s eyes?
We spend most of our lives wishing we were someone else. You know when you look at someone’s life and think to yourself I want what they have? Have you ever thought some people may wish that they had your life?
I know sounds crazy. I bet a lot of you are thinking why would anyone wish to be me why am I so special?
But maybe that’s just it our lives are special and we just don’t see it. Maybe we just need to stop getting distracted about all that goes wrong in our lives and focus on what’s going right.
I was reading a blog from a psychologist who was conducting a class. She held up a glass of water and everyone she was going to ask is the glass half full or empty half full?
Instead she asked how much does the glass of water weigh. Of course people started answering 100 grams or 500 grams. The psychologist explained that it doesn’t matter how much the water weighs what matters is how long that you hold the glass of water. If you hold it for a minute it weighs nothing, if you hold it for an hour it gets heavier but if you hold it for a day it becomes really heavy as your arm starts cramping.
Her point was that the same applies to stress and anxiety and life, the longer that you hold onto something the more it weighs you down and that at the end of the day we should let go of all that stress that has built up.
This really speaks to me we don’t seem to see how good our lives are because we are being weighed down by all the negativity.
So that one person who wishes that they had your life isn’t crazy they just see all the good things that is happening to you and wish it were happening to them.
Maybe we all just need to stop and think what our life would look like through someone else’s eyes.
We just need to learn to seize the experiences that life throws at you because hidden in the chaos and the stress is a door that can lead to better things. It has always been there we just are so blinded by everything else to see it.
You are the person that can make everything change.
Some words of wisdom, just slow down and take everything in, there is a reason that this is happening you just need to find it and understand it.
