Last week was a tough one. By the end of the week, I felt like my head was going to explode.Nothing seemed to be going right.
Yesterday, my husband and I took a drive on a scenic highway and I was enraptured by the brilliant colors of the late Fall foliage. I felt the pressure of the last week seeping out of me as I sat mesmerized by the magnificence that surrounded me. I couldn’t stop commenting about how beautiful the world was.
Suddenly, I realized that what I was seeing was the world through my rose-colored sunglasses. Taking them off, the gorgeous scenery no longer existed. All the colors were fading away as Autumn took her final bow.For a moment I felt deceived but then I started to laugh because whether or not it was an illusion it had made me feel happier than I’ve been in days.
The challenges I am facing will not disappear overnight but with the help of my rose colored glasses and a positive attitude, I believe I will be just fine.
