What's your Perception?

Perception... What's Perception?

Perception is what we see in Life and how do we see Life.

Since Perception is about Views in Life, doesn't it mean Perception is also how we distinguish between what is important and what is not in Life?

Life can be as big and important as you make it out to be. Or it can be as small and insignificant as you perceptions define it.

So how Big or how Small is your Life?

I used to think Life is bad, nothing goes in my way, everything in Life is just about Destiny making fun of me.

But soon I realised, even if it's Destiny that's making fun of me, but it doesn't gives me the leisure to sit and do nothing!

So is it that changes my way of thinking during that point of time?

It's all about Happiness.

Not that I suddenly found Happiness, it's that I came to an understanding that Perceptions in Life affects Happiness.

How can Perception in Life affects Happiness?

When you are pricked by the Thorns on the Rose, do you complain because Roses have Thorns, or do you rejoice because Thorns have Roses?

It's all just about you perceive things in Life with a negative connotation or you perceive things in Life with a positive connotation.

When you perceive things in Life with negative connotation, even when something great is happening, you always seem to perceive the situation negatively.
Because of this, You aren’t really happy in life.
But it’s not that you hate life or anything, it’s just that you perceive more Thorns than Roses.

How can we change Perception in Life?

If you can learn to see the Roses among the Thorns you will find that Life becomes so much better and you will begin to experience a level of Happiness that you may have never experienced before.

There are 2 types of people in this world, people who see life as Colorful and Grand and people who see Life as Insignificant and Futile.

I wouldn't say any one type is wrong. It all has to do with how you see things.
Some people tend to see things as humongous and complex; others see things as humble and simple.

So which type do you belong to?

If you belong to the second type, is it because although there is greatness living inside of you but you don't know how to achieve it?

Since we all only have one life to Live, why don't we might as well live it to its fullest and experience life with as much happiness as possible?
