Hello everyone. I am writing this from sunny Spain! Today I am going to talk about the power of perception. Let’s fill our lives with more positive energy.
Perception of What?
You may be thinking, what kind of perception? Well, the way we perceive things affects how we act and how we feel. Of course, we can’t control everything, life is spontaneous and can be filled with some unwanted events.
If you explore the definition of perception, there are two: “the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses”. It is also defined as; “the way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted”.
So, here, we are looking at the second definition. How do you perceive situations? How do you deal with what life throws your way?
You Have an Amazing Power
I want you to understand that you have a sense of control over the way you react. All of those feelings, the positive and negative ones – happiness, sadness, anger, resentment etc, are what you allow yourself to feel.
The message I am trying to get across is that if someone does something which makes you angry, you can control how long you feel angry for. I am not saying never feel anger, I am simply saying learn to let it go. Holding onto a certain emotion for too long can be detrimental to your happiness.
Learn to use the power to your advantage. If you become upset by something, recognise the feeling, let yourself be upset. But, it only takes so long before it becomes self-inflicted. Learn to release the emotion. Move on.
That is how you stay positive as much as possible. We all feel sadness, we all feel anger, it is just some people are more aware and in control of their emotions than others. Become one of these people, it will only benefit you.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you have a beautiful weekend.
