The picture is in the frame

Often, we unconsciously view experiences framed in whatever worldview we may espouse at the time. If we believe that we are not loved or we are pitied against hostile forces, our experience will mirror hatred, resistance and opposition. Two people in the same circumstance often have different experiences – one angry and lashing out and another composed and discerning. The frame of mind influences the experience.

One day, during a group discussion, someone actually stated that he learned from a co-worker, not to expect being treated fairly, so as not to be disappointed. Well, it happens that the world has a way of rewarding our expectations.

How about looking for something to appreciate in every situation – even where we “think” everything is so grim? It is a good starting point and a good exercise in mindset re-alignment.
