Spirituality from Daily Word: “Perspective” (Espiritualidad de La Palabra Diaria: “Perspectiva”)

Perspective

I choose to be happy today.

I’ve heard the old cliche, “It’s all in how you look at it,” but it has taken years to recognize those words as a powerful tool for happiness. My experience of life is entirely determined by the way I choose to view people and events and the labels I apply to them, good or bad.

I see this when a friend thinks a meal is wonderful and I don’t, or I’m thrilled by some family news while a loved one sees trouble. Clearly our responses are not determined by events; we are interpreting the same events differently. We are choosing whether to be happy. Free will is part of my divine makeup and feels like a gift from God. I can choose to be happy every day!

 

If there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.—Philippians 4:8

Vista Suas Asas: Cuidar do outro é cuidar de si

Perspectiva

 

Hoy elijo ser feliz.

He oído la frase: “Todo depende del modo cómo lo veas”. Reconozco estas palabras como una herramienta poderosa para la felicidad. Mi experiencia de vida es determinada por la manera como elijo ver a las personas y los acontecimientos, y las etiquetas que les coloco —buenas o malas.

Me percato de esto cuando un amigo piensa que una comida es maravillosa y yo no, o cuando siento emoción por una noticia mientras que un ser amado siente tristeza. Cómo respondemos no es determinado por los acontecimientos; cada uno interpreta los acontecimientos de manera diferente. Elegimos cuándo ser felices. El libre albedrío es parte de mi consistencia espiritual y lo experimento como un don de Dios. ¡Puedo elegir ser feliz cada día!

 

Si hay en ello alguna virtud, si hay algo que admirar, piensen en ello.—Filipenses 4:8

  1. Thanks for sharing, dear Amira,

    It is us who decides whether we have a glass of water half full or half empty…
    So we can see things positively or negatively according to our attitude towards life and events…

    All the best my friend and stay safe and healthy
    From heart to heart
