Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries

Many oddities wash up on the beach. From the vastness of the ocean a variety of flotsam and jetsam gets deposited on the sand and then they wash away or get incorporated into the beach itself. Negative events or emotions are like this. When stray shadows fall upon our hearts, we have to learn to either cast them back into the void or reshape them into clues which offer a deeper understanding of our inner selves.

There are people who spend their lives casting off harsh comments and hurtful observations about others. Like spoiling fishing bait they toss off painful remarks and unhappy emotions. Some people flock to this distressing trail, and are happy to feast on the gloomy pessimism.

While others gather up the cast off pain in order to refute the harsh reality presented by melancholy egoists. There needs to be more positive souls such as these who are willing to shine a piercing light through cynical narratives.

In the end it all comes down to a matter of perspective. You can chose to alter your perception filters. You can change your negative reaction to events. You can begin to live a happier life. Search your heart for your shining star to guide you towards a better life.

Believe

Believe in yourself. Life can be a bowl of cherries.
