Missing My Outlet

It has been a very bittersweet couple of months. I quit my job, for a new job opportunity that didn’t end up working out. I then went unemployed for a few weeks searching for a new job tirelessly. I got a new job that wasn’t quite what I was looking for but it has been a great opportunity and much better than the last “new job”. It’s such a new schedule and much longer days. I’ve really had to adjust a lot that I was used to doing.

Through all of this, one thing I have thoroughly missed has been my blog. It was such an outlet for me and I can really notice the difference between being able to get my opinions and feelings off my chest in such an open way.

It’s funny that we go through different phases of our life and one minute we have time for a lot of things and the next we barely have time to sit down.

Well come on LIFE I’m ready for you!!!

Assumptions

Ever heard that phrase, “To assume, makes an ass out of you and me”. Do you agree?

I think this explains quite a few arguments I’ve had with people. I have a complete mood change when somebody makes assumptions about me.

All things discovered were never assumed. It takes questions and answers to learn something.

Instead of assuming, just ask! Or don’t assume anything at all.

Being The Bigger Person

I find myself in this situation often, where somebody tries to get me to “stoop” to their level. Well I REFUSE!!!!

Even though being the bigger person is tough, and the other person doesn’t always see it. It provides such a huge benefit to you. It shows you, that you have the patience, and self-control that many others don’t have. It means that when you are faced with any situation you are not taken out of your element.

 

Highs and Lows

Sometimes you need to be at your lowest point to be brought back up to your higher success.

I have found myself being tested by this. It has recently seemed like little, crazy, bad things have been happening to me. Not life-changing events, but the mood changing kind that leaves you in a temporary “funk”.

I go through these moods often which sounds very discouraging, but there is always a light at the end of these tunnels. Something great ends up happening, and it seems like all those crazy, bad things that happened prior aren’t relevant anymore.

These highs and lows are necessary. In order to see and appreciate the good things, you sometimes have to face and feel the bad.

Chin up, and anticipate those great things coming your way!!!

Perspective

While looking up the dictionary definition of perspective, I came to notice that there are 4 definitions of this word, depending on how it is being used.

Definition of perspective

1a : a mental view or prospect
to gain a broader perspective on the international scene
b : a visible scene; especially: one giving a distinctive impression of distance

2a : the interrelation in which a subject or its parts are mentally viewed 
places the issues in proper perspective; also point of view
b : the capacity to view things in their true relations or relative importance 
trying to maintain my perspective

3: the appearance to the eye of objects in respect to their relative distance and positions

4a : the technique or process of representing on a plane or curved surface the spatial relation of objects as they might appear to the eye; specifically: representation in a drawing or painting of parallel lines as converging in order to give the illusion of depth and distance
b : a picture in perspective

Given my current understanding of what perspective means to me, I found this rather ironic that something that means having multiple or different views would have multiple definitions.

Do we look at people or situations with more than one perspective, or do we follow only one way of thinking?

Would changing our perspective on a certain subject make things more clear on why things are, the way they are?

Try to find something that you might have only looked at from one perspective, and put yourself in another set of shoes to see if it’s the same from that different perspective.

When It Rains, It Pours

I’ve always liked the phrase, ” When it rains, it pours”.

It seems like in our adult lives when one thing goes wrong, many things go wrong.

Is it a test of our perseverance and strength? Is it like in nature, when it pours, and everything looks gross and wet, and then things clear up just to expose the greener more bloomed side?

When many things go wrong in our lives, maybe there is a much prettier and simpler side waiting for us at the end. Watch for those rainbows and wait for your blooms!
