Attitude for 19th of March 2011
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars” by Oscar Wilde.
We can sometimes feel as if we are in a gutter. Different things happen in life, some due to our fault, and some for other known and unknown reasons. However, just knowledge of where you are cannot solve your problem. We can keep on stating the fact that we are in a gutter and we will keep staying there as long as we state that. Look at it once and then change your focus. Looking at the stars will give you another perspective. It will give you a goal to go after.
Your goals drag you upward or downward. If you do not have any goals you just stay where you are. As I said bad things do happen, we may go astray. But do we have to stay in the gutter if we had got there. No, we don’t. We have to raise our heads up and see the goal. Only having a goal we can get out of our ‘gutters’. Just by seeing stars we regain our hope, which we usually lose when we fall into a ‘gutter’. So, if you think that your life is finished, just pick up your head and look at the stars. You will survive and live to see better days.
