Do you see goodness?
Do you see a life that is ready to be lived?
Do you see an answer to your questions?
Do you see hope or despair?
What do you see?
Now let me ask you...what do you want to see?
I've always tried to see the cup as half full instead of half empty. Half empty took over my world in a lot of moments, as well. Other times I was just happy that the cup was filled at all. I think that's what we all strive for, right? To see that our life or what we look out at/our perspective is filled with something, anything. You want to look out into this window to your world and see what you need and seek.
Everyday I wake up and try to fill my thoughts, my hours, my day with positive thinking. It's hard a lot of the times. Sometimes I just want to get back in bed and hide under the covers and let my life be obliterated by sleep. Sleep helps to make the time pass. It is also one of my signs of my personal depression. To get out of that depression, those moments where I don't want to try, I need to do something. Fill my imaginary cup...half full, half empty, it doesn't matter...as long as it is filled.
There are so many of us that suffer through this. The hustle of life gets to us. We try to figure out how we're going to fit one more thing in our already tight as it is schedule. We want more. We need more. And sometimes, we have no idea what that "more" is that fulfills us.
What would make us happy?
What would help us get out of bed every morning?
What would help us sleep at night?
What would give us a better view?
But then...it happens. You get that hug you needed. You get that phone call that makes you smile. You get that warm cup of something that makes life so well worth it. Those are the memories and experiences that we need to cling to. When the fog rolls in and tries to engulf you in the what ifs and why nots, we need to put things into a new perspective. That perspective that shows us how worthy, how wonderful, how smart and beautiful and enough we really are.
What do I see when I look out into the world?
I see Hope.
A world of hope and promise at my fingertips. A world where I can pour something grand into my cup...
I want my cup to be filled with gentle kisses, warm hugs, a sweet hello, and well of inspiration at my fingertips. I want a world that I look out at that gives me what I need and long for.
A world where I hold that warm cup in my hand and inhale the goodness that I know is out there.
The goodness that tells me that I am enough.
That you are enough.
That we are filled and ready to tackle this place called life.
Now what do you see when you look out into this big wide world?
