Dear Ones when bad things happen in your life that’s a good time to step back and look for a new perspective on things. Change is a guarantee. Nothing stays the same and that means that you are better off learning to go with the flow of life with its ups and downs. I know I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. But perhaps what I can share is the idea of stepping back and having a new perspective. I have several friends that play the “ain’t it awful” game, complaining about everything that upsets them. Not only are they unhappy themselves but when they are in this thinking mode they put out a negative energy that negatively affects others. It’s better to step back and get a perspective. Are things really so bad that they need to rob you of your peace of mind? Are there other people that are suffering worse luck than you? Are they all unhappy, too? Or have some found a way to be grateful for what good they do have? Remember that there is always someone who has it worse than you and that there are some who are actually happy in spite of their misfortune. When things go wrong step back and get a new perspective. Don’t give away your peace of mind.
