Saturday night we were getting take out, and while we were waiting for our food an older gentleman said, “Are you young kids going to sit in that chair?” I said, “I love being called a young kid!” and my husband said, “Cool! I look like a young 42 year-old!” The man looked at us, smiled, and said, “Well, it’s all a matter of perspective isn’t it?”
Just a few minuts earlier, on the way to the restaurant, we were just talking about how much we accomplished in 2011. We brought Evan home from the hospital in January, I launched Acclivity in March, Jay switched jobs, my mom got engaged, we lost our cat, got a puppy, and the list just goes on and on.
It’s hard to believe it’s already time for Thanksgiving and before we know it 2012 will be here. This is a great time to really put things in perspective. It’s the time of year when we get to look back, celebrate our accomplishments, re-focus on things we still want to accomplish, and be genuinely thankful for all fo the gifts in our life.
While it’s easy to get caught up in the negative or to complain about all of the things that aren’t quite where we’d like them to be, this is the time to switch your perspective. For everything you might not be happy about, there’s a flip side. This week, take a look at your life from a different perspective.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
