“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” – Hamlet, Act II, scene 2
I just so happen to be the Queen of over thinking. Not sure if you all know that 😉 It’s something that I try to work on but I forget to work on it a lot of the time until it’s too late and I’m already over thinking haha Then I over think about over thinking and that’s the worst.
Well I stumbled across this quote in an article yesterday and it was the obvious answer as to why I should put an end to this madness of mine. It’s right, well Shakespeare was, nothing is really good or bad, it is what it is. But it’s thinking that makes us label things. We make things positive or negative by how we choose to interpret them and think about them. Happened today actually…and it took me a few hours to realize that I was making my situation “bad” when it really actually taught me something that will be useful and “good” in the future.
Next time you get down about something and think that it is bad and negative, try and see it from the positive and good side. Or, better yet, try not to label it as either..Just “let it be”! Funny how that three word sentence seems to rule my life 😉
