Day 9: Perspective

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Today started out pretty blah. 

I guess you could say that I’m currently sitting in a hyper state of transition.  What with all of the newness entering my life, there is bound to be certain things that will end or start coming to a close at least.  This feeling is at times uncomfortable, and makes me squirm.  Rightfully so.

I think in the vein of continuing to be happy with my decisions, I need to stop focusing on what is bothering me and start focusing on the positive aspects instead. 

I have to admit, even in my disgruntled state of mind, that I have been given amazing opportunities in the past that have led me to where I am right now.  Those particular opportunities are in the process of setting me up for future success, but I just need to keep reminding myself to have perspective.  Don’t worry so much.  Soon come.

I also need to remind myself that everything takes it’s time.  Just as forests take centuries to grow and great books take years to write and popcorn takes minutes to pop, they’re still worth waiting for…

And in the meantime, I can remind myself that ya skies may be gray, but, I’m still looking at beauty everyday…
