For once in my life, I’ve chosen to turn bad experiences into good ones by thinking positively and by rather realizing that terrible and hurtful things that people tend to do is of no reflection of ones self, but rather of them. If one has the inherent ability to be so horrible and hurtful, well then that wasn’t an act that I evoked out of them but rather that they possessed all along.
Thinking back to some of the things this people tend to say as excuses – “I have no time for myself” ” finding time to gym is hard” “I’m studying” “I’m working” etc etc. I think of the story about the Mayonnaise Jar and the Two Cups of Coffee (if you haven’t read it, you should) – I’ve attached a photo below. It basically gives a great analogy about how much time we have in a day, and that if it seems 24 hours is not enough – we are wrong. The end tells us of how a student asks the professor what the coffee represented in this analogy and he replied “It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.” – and right there is my point. Bottom line – work hard and be nice to people.
