Which Glasses are you Choosing?

January 31, 2019

 

Imagine for a moment that you have a big box of eye glasses.

 

All different colors and styles.

 

But instead of having a specific prescription, 

 

each pair has an emotion attached to it.

 

And when you put them on, 

 

you see the world through that particular emotion.

 

You look really great in glasses, by the way. 

 

There is every emotion you can think of in this imaginary box.

 

Love.

 

Empathy.

 

Frustration.

 

Sadness.

 

Resentment.

 

Self-Pity.

 

Overwhelm.

 

Confusion.

 

Fear.

 

Determination.

 

Grit.

 

Gratitude.

 

Generosity.

 

You get to pick up any pair of lenses that you'd like. 

 

And when you put them on, 

 

that's how you'll see the world.

 

How do you want to view the world?

 

I want you to really think about that question.

 

Because we don't always want to be happy, now do we?

 

When I hear about a child who was abused, 

 

I want to be sad.

 

And angry.

 

It really isn't about slapping a fake smile across your face and "faking it til you make it."

 

It's about being intentional and choosing what emotion you want driving your actions---

 

on purpose.

 

What pair of glasses do you want to put on when you, for example, jump on Nelnet and see how much money your family owes in student loans?

 

Did you know that overwhelm and discouragement aren't the only options?

 

What about determination to pay them off?

 

What about...ahem.....gratitude?

 

Whaaaaaa??

 

I know what you're thinking---

 

"How on earth do you expect me to feel GRATEFUL for student loans???"

 

Stick with me here------

 

Student loans mean that your husband was able to get an education.

 

To further his knowledge and his career.

 

Did you know that is a luxury denied to many?

 

Getting an education is a privilege.

 

What pair of glasses can you swap out today?
