Point Of View.

We all see through a different set of eyes. Right or wrong, positive or negative, good or is all relative. We all have different personality types and a natural instinct to find the downside of everything and blame others around us for our misfortunes or situations that we have gotten ourselves into. 

What if we decided each day to make a conscious decision to fight to see the right in other's opinions even if they differ from our own? What if we decided to find the positive to a negative? What if we decided to take ownership for the role we play in our misfortunes and situations we get ourselves in to?

My mantra when I need focus is "The grass if greener on the other side but if you took the time to water your own grass it would be just as green." I live by this. It is far too easy to want the things that others have tended to and not want to tend our own things to make them pleasing. It is also too easy to get in to the mindset when someone or something ruins our grass to get stuck on blaming and victimizing ourselves rather than wasting precious time fixing our grass with the things we can control. 

So take control of your life. Take control of your happiness. See with a broader pint of view.
