I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes. – Sara Teasdale
Now, this is what a call a superior attitude. You can’t lose with an attitude and way of life like Sara describes.
I think employing this attitude could/would actually increase the good that is coming your way because your focus is turned away from what is no longer necessary or applicable in your life. Your focus is more on the present; what you have right now in your hands. You can make good of it or not. It’s a choice, but a big one. Your life would dramatically change if you made the most of whatever was coming your way.
It would remove your dependency on external things for your happiness. Your level of happiness would be solely in your hands, which means you can be happy no matter what is happening in your life. It may sound simplistic, but I think it actually is simplistic. We make too much of stuff sometimes. We get wrapped up in the events of our lives. It would be better to see what we can do with what comes our way. It’s a 180 degrees shift.
Think about this concept. I’m definitely incorporating this into my daily life.
Have a great day!
