Sometimes you may feel like you’re doing your best to make something work but then it hits you — no you’re really not. This quote from The Amazing Spiderman 2 just put everything into perspective:
It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most.
It hit me right where it mattered — everyday, I have to choose to be better. I always say I have everything I need in life, and some more, and that everyday I am thankful for all of it. But just like anyone, I have bad days too. There are days when I am selfish, there are days when I am insensitive, there are days when I am just plain mean. And the sadder part is I not just make my day bad, but I ruin other people’s day as well. Sure some people may mean nothing to me, but if it’s someone I love, then it becomes a totally different story. Today I am reminded that no matter how happy a person I am, it’s when I’m sad and down that I should choose to be happier, to be more hopeful, to be more thankful. It’s when I am hurt that I should be stronger. It’s when I am unloved that I should choose to love more.
A negative thought only feeds itself, and truth be told, nobody got time for more negativity.
