I woke up early this morning to a beautiful view of the Red Sea in the distance… Yet I couldn’t help notice the dirty staines on the window I looked through. I was foced on this instead of appreciating the view in front of me (more wondering the best method for cleaning windows on the 6th floor)!
Something has to change!
I can either spend all my time focusing on the negative obstacles in my life that frustrate me, or I can see the bigger picture; how beautiful life is and start appreciating it (and my opportunities) more.
It doesn’t mean that the window no longer needs a good clean just because I can see though it – it does! However it’s only when I stop noticing the distributive detail that I’ll see the true beauty of life. I need to refocus and see the bigger picture…
Life is what you make of it!
And there couldn’t be a more perfect time for adapting a healthy mentality on viewing life (particularly my student life in the lecture room) than on New Year’s Eve!
I might have my frustrations about being a student now, but the end picture should be a brighter one when I get that degree!
That’s my bigger picture anyway, and I’m staying focused on it!
Happy New Year everyone!!
Refocusing for 2014!
