Perception

I was driving along the other day and there was a truck in front of me with a wheel tire cover that had Life is Good on it! For all of those who are familiar with the Life is Good product line, it is one of my favorite. Now I’ve said this on many occasions, but it always had some type of stipulation attached to it. I would come up with different formulas to happiness so I would be able to proclaim that Life is Good.  Life is good if I make this amount of money or life is good if this or that takes place in my life.  The problem with this method of living is that it doesn’t leave room for sometimes stuff just happens. Sometimes the car breaks down, sometimes your check is not as much as you thought it was going to be, and sometimes a relationship just doesn’t work out. Whenever a situation like this took place, I would have to forfeit my proclamation of Life is Good, because this didn’t represent living good to me.  Realizing that I needed to change my mindset and how I viewed a life of pleasure, Spirit brought back to my remembrance a conversation that I had with a co-worker. My co-worker asked me “Why do you always say that you are doing great? Do you ever have a down day?” I remember having to think about it and then I realized that I do have down moments, that my statement didn’t imply that I feel great all day, just for the majority of the day. When I answered his question he looked at me as if at that moment he got it. It’s all perception! You have 24 hours in a day, if 8 of those hours are really bad but the other 16 are pretty good to great, then the day as a whole has to be declared as GREAT! With Spirit bringing this back to my remembrance, I had to agree that Life is Good. So I tell you as I tell myself, there are things you can’t control that will take place in your life, that’s just life!  Yet when I look at my 39 years here on this earth, I have had more days where nothing went wrong and life was pretty enjoyable, than the days that everything went wrong. So for me, and I hope for you as well, Life is Good! It’s all perception.
