It was a bright morning a few years ago during a bike race when an individual jokingly asked me how the world looked through the rose colored glasses I was wearing. I smiled and brushed him off at the time but all the same I loved that he commented on my pink sunglasses and I’ve remembered his statement ever since.
How do you see the world?
I’ve not always been the type of person that is ever positive and always looking at a glass (or life) as half full. It has taken a little practice to pull it off. I would easily get frustrated if things did not go my way. If I had decided I didn’t enjoy something, I almost couldn’t wait for it to end. If I was tired or thought differently about something, you knew about it.
Through a series of events I changed and I found a new eyeglasses prescription.I decided it was no longer any fun to go through life angry or upset. I decided it was a lot more fun to be happy. I had a room-mate in college that was a great example at how to pull this off. No matter what we did, raking leaves, shoveling rocks, or getting lost on a bike ride when it was almost dark- we always had a great time. She was an incredibly positive person that always looked for something good in what she was doing and everyone around her.
This was probably the final straw as I leaped into a new life of being positive. I had more energy. I had fun. I saw the world in a new way and began to love my life all over again. As it is my mission to make this blog the sweetest blog on the web I bring to you the idea of looking at the world through chocolate covered eye glasses and seeing what sweetness you can find out there. I choose my own happiness. I choose to look at the world and see sweet.
