a new perspective

Yesterday, I was all upside down, topsy-turvy; wearing the wrong colour – black instead of my usual bright reds, yellows, oranges or blues.

I was looking on the dark side, in the shadows, worrying about the things that may never happen.

Fear is the shadow of joy…  I can’t remember who said that, but it is true.  I was in the shadow, afraid of losing joy.

Someone else said that suffering comes from expectation.  And I was expecting all the wrong things.  They also said the way out was to move to appreciation.

So if I was upside down metaphorically yesterday, I turned myself upside down physically today to get a better perspective.  And in doing so, turned myself back the right way round.

I am wearing yellow and a smile again.
