A lot of the classifications and opinions we hold are more indicative of ourselves than of the innate qualities of that which we are judging. Boring people are bored easily. Interesting people are interested easily. If your mind has a default mode, that’s going to influence your experiences. Which is good news if you ever decide make appreciation your default mode. If you are looking for the beauty in your experiences or looking for something to love about the people you interact with, you will find it.

This post captures the quintessence of my view on life a few years back, but since then, I have gotten a little lost. Recently I returned from a difficult journey, and these were the exact words I needed to hear. Seeing this at such an impressionable moment in my life has reminded me of what’s important. Thank you.
