A Sunny Disposition
If you’re like me, you have a better outlook on life when the sun is shining. Rain and overcast skies tend to drag me down and make me weary. I feel a certain heaviness that makes it hard to trudge on and keep things going.
But I know that if I just stick with it, things will naturally begin to turn and improve. So even on those days when most things don’t seem to be going right, I try to bear down and work to finish my tasks. I know that to break through I must remain disciplined about my work and serious about my goals.
On life’s “gray days” I’m reminded of the importance of interpretation and perspective. I know that my view and general sense of life are terribly important to the way that I deal with the work ahead, its many problems and hurdles. Sunlight seems to be my friend and ally, pushing me forward and then delighting in my success.
