Funny how differently we perceive life's journeys, depending on our mood. Sometimes the most bitter of sweets taste sweet, and the most sweet of sweets taste bitter. Can we ditch the bitter and stick with the sweet? A question very well suited for a Monday night, a time when the mind is still willing to reason.
I don't believe in people being overly positive, simply because that sort of attitude is not a true reflection of reality...in fact it's a form of escape, programmed to alienate a mind from the hardships and suffering that exist in this world. Applying the same argument to the lower curve of the wave, total negativity is an opposing extremity that takes us away from the beauty and wonders that adorn our lives. What we need, is a balanced mind that is capable of accepting what is and taking advantage of every situation. Keep your eyelids open, for what you need is right in front of you.
You see, the bitter sweets play an incredibly important role...they make the sweet sweets taste sweeter.
