I am aware of my tendency to project an impression that I’m a person with great smile. This doesn’t mean my life is always perfect. I had great times and worst times. However, regardless of happenings in my life, I try my best to remember great times.
When I was young, I saw a demonstration about light.
A light was set up on a desk and all other lights were turned off. Then, this person showed how shades of shadows changes according to the distance of your hand and and the light.
This demonstration was repeated with stronger light.
The brighter the light, the darker the shadow.Carl Jung
This demonstration had showed me that there is no such things as bright or dark, right or wrong, good or bad. There are always two sides to one thing, just as a coin, and that’s the reality of the life. However, you have a choice whether you want to concentrate on the light or the darkness. Or, you have a choice to regard both the light or the darkness as the facts of life and moving forward.
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.Ralph Waldo Emerson
Recently, I have realised my fears had blocked my life. For example, for many years, I kept telling myself that I am not good with English. Not only didn’t trust my own ability, because I was repeating this phrase so many times, I truly believed that I am not good with English. Only recently I found probably I am better than I thought.
Which side are you choosing to see today?
Are you blocking your own way?
Where would you like to go today?
