I read somewhere ‘Absorb what is useful, discard what is not.’ and this thought never left me. This helps me every moment, everyday.
So to start with, black and white are two aspects of life. There will be joy and jolt, rainy and sunny days, depression and laughter. All these travel along with each other. Black and White are parallel roads, you have to choose which path to walk on. I know that it is easier said than done, but once you know how to overlook the negative and embrace the positive, it will mark a huge difference in your life.
On a very personal note, I’ve been a negative person in my past. Taking things too much to the head and heart, getting effected by negative people or tricky situations was so common that it seemed like a part of my time table. It took me time and a lot of patience to learn to outgrow the negativity. Negativity cannot be overlooked but outgrown with hope in the heart.
Whatever is happening isn’t under your control. Your control is over your inner optimism. Whatever beauty, happiness and inspiration you come across, absorb it like a sponge. Discard the negative and foul things that surround you. There is no shame in surpassing negative people and walking towards glory.
Black and white will always be there. Be observant of the black, tough and negative aspects but suffering because of them is optional.
May life give you lots of love and happiness to spread. 🙂
