I never really heard of this quote before, beside that I’m not a person who will take a quote very seriously. But when I heard the meaning behind this one it really made me think about it. La Vie En Rose basicly stands for that you’ve got to remember, that whenever you are going through a rough time, you’ve still got the option to watch life through rose colored glasses. It’s all about the mindset you’ve got. Nothing is black and white, it can be rose colored if that’s the way you choose to look at it. You control your own mind.
Now I, how shall I say it, am kind of a ‘cloudy’ person. If you would hand me half a glass of soda I’m the one who says ‘it’s half empty’ – instead of half full. That’s my personal way of looking at it, it’s also kind of in my character but I’m able to change it if I want to. Why? Because: ‘La Vie En Rose.’
I feel like most of the time that we’re in a bad mood it’s because we let things upset us more than we should accept. I am a living example of that. When I think about it I’m easily upset, about things such as: schoolprojects, the weather, train delays… As I read this back I realize it’s most of the time about things that I cannot even change myself. I can’t magically fix an extra train, I can’t change the weather nor can’t I change that annoying project that asks way to much of my time.
I guess that what I’m saying is that you’ve got a choice. You look at life the way you accept yourself looking at it. Nobody else tells you to get upset of feel negative about things, you do it all yourself. This is kind of a reminder that once you’ve changed your mindset you are able to stay positive or at least a little more brightsided in a lot of situations. Your mood, body and mind will thank you later. There’s no reason to get frustrated over things you can’t change (anymore.) Believe me, tomorrow will come anyway.
