Think about something that drives you crazy. Now, think about something that makes you happy. Does it change your perspective on the former?
Albert Einstein said, “You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”
I know Albert Einstein wanted us to change how we felt when we had the problem.My question is what if the problem still exists and I’m the only one who is prepared to change, What then, how can it be solved?
To understand ourselves, others, the world around me, I can change, what about the others if they are stubborn and hold on to the grudge, how is my change going to help the situation?
There are things that make me happy e.g, kind friends who are ever ready to help in any circumstance.
It is completely different from the former, in the former I have someone who is always ready to stab me in the back regardless of how much energy I expend to smooth out things. It is clearly a very different scenario, it does not give me any hope that changing my perspective will make me happy!
We all seem to insist on busy, busy we constantly are.Let’s put things in perspective : tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade.
I usually am not always so busy that it can be called the craziest, busiest,most hectic day I’ve had. When I have a day which is relatively quiet and peaceful anything added to it even if it’s kind of normal makes it a hectic day for me.
The past week I was in another city,I was trying to find a fall coat, there were many in different stores, but were not exactly appealing to me, some were too pricey, there was one I liked ,they didn’t have my size. I went looking for one from store to store, it was a cold rainy day, I had to go in and out of stores,this was becoming too hectic for me,at the end of the day I was walking faster and faster to catch the subway train to get to the right station.
When I was done running I arrived at the said station, I walked out it was raining and windy. I wanted to wait , my daughter thought we must get out and start walking, our apartment was nine hundred meters away, which meant swift walking or else we’d be completely drenched, we reached it but had to climb the spiraled staircase of more than thirty stairs. When I reached the front of the door I was breathless!
