I Am Trying to Change My Outlook On Life

Are you trying to change your outlook as well? 93 People

    New Vision

    i am trying to change my outlook on life because  I used to be a very negative person and had this delusion that everyone was trying to get one over on me. i always blamed all my troubles on everyone but the one who was really at fault, me.

    Well, as many of my EP friends know,

    I have been struggling a lot with PTSD, depression, triggers, etc. That is no longer the case though! Lately, I have been so happy and at peace, it's unbelievable. I began meditating through a guided meditation app on my phone, and it has brought so much peace inside of myself...

    Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.

    I have always thought one person can turn someone's life around or a simple gesture can make someone's day. Its the small things in life that are the biggest rewards.
