Perspective

To everyone out there…
So today as I went for a walk i started to think about the world and how small my problems really are. It isn’t a very pleasant thing to think about actually. It made me think that I am selfish for thinking I have problems…. I bet that’s not where you thought this was going.

I do believe that everyone’s problems matter and that you can’t compare your problems with someone elses because you don’t know what they have been through. But at the same time I think about all those people who really do have uch bigger problems than I do. We have people starving all around the world. There are people without homes. The world is actually a very cruel place. So why do my basic problems feel so HUGE.

Am I selfish to think that my problems actually mean something. Clearly they mean nothing in the bigger scheme of things and the people with influence won’t even think about listening to my story, but does that mean that my problems are worthless. That my problems shouldn’t be problems?

How often has someone said to you “Just think about the fact that there are people out there with bigger problems than you. you should cheer up.” or something along those lines… Even more importantly how often have you said that to someone. Perhaps the worst situation of all is when you sit with your friends and people around you and you try to out problem each other (“no listen my parents are getting a divorce. That’s a lot worse than you getting yelled at” – Lame example but you get my point)

So what should we do about our problems? Should we ignore them and tell ourselves that others have it far worse than we do? Should we share our problems with the world? What is the best way to deal with those things that bother us, that just don’t seem so important when you look at the bigger picture?

Perhaps I am the only one who is tossing these thoughts around but I wanted to put it out there. I really don’t always know how to feel about my problems. Do I have a right to get upset about small things?

Much love and happiness

My current state of mind…

Sunset at the edge of a lake.

To everyone out there…

Today my current state of mind is represented in the picture above. Please bare with me as I explain.

I want today to be beautiful really i do but it is not quite there yet. Firstly I see some darkness today as my loneliness creeps in but then there beyond the darkness is what I hope for for today…some sunshine in this winter time.

There are so many good things that are in my near future and I should be excited about them but I’m not. Or I’m not as excited as I should be. Or am I telling myself i’m excited but actually I’m not?

See that’s the confusing part I don’t even know how I feel. Do I feel happy like the sunlight with some darkness on the side or do I feel like I am in the darkness with some light on the side?

See my mind can be a confusing place once I start to think about all these possibilities and as I always do i start to analyze every thought and feeling that I have. Is that even normal? Every step I take everything I do. I analyze it so much that I am confused.

Do any of you do that?

New addition…

To everyone out there…

So I have decided to add something new to my blog. I have decided to add quotes to my blog. Not several quotes just one or two a day when I feel inspired.

I don’t know if quotes inspire any of you but for me a good quote at the right time can change my day.

Much love and Happiness
