When checking through the late Eileen Mitchell’s effects, her daughter Marion found the following poem which I think epitomises someone who had a positive outlook on life. I feel privileged to be able to share Eileen’s wonderful words with you now.
Looking At Life
Don’t condemn the world because you don’t like what you see: trouble and unhappinness, greed, vice and misery. Certainly these things escape it and cannot be denied.
Don’t forget there is something on the other side: courage and unselfishness and much that’s good and kind. It really all depends on the focus of your mind.
Don’t let dark distorting shadow’s spoil the world for you. The fault may lie within yourself, so change your point of view.
Instead of looking on the bad and dwelling on the worst, try and get a broader vision, putting best things first. Turn the camera around and from a different angle strike, you will get another picture; Maybe one that you will like.
I hope you love this as much as I do, thank’s for reading have an amazing day!
