But I Like My Rose Colored Glasses
Not that anyone would notice, but I kind of like my rose colored glasses. Ten years ago maybe not, but today - you bet. I look at the world around me and I find myself at times wanting to shut it out. Being a normally happy-go-lucky person, saying I want to shut the world out is a big statement for me.
I think age changes how we spend our free time, and who we choose to spend it with. While a few of my friends could still be accused of running around with a lampshade on their head, a larger number of them have graduated to being a bonified home body. I find myself stuck in the middle of my friends - I'm not a wild child, nor a doormat. But when the two sides get to be over-whelming for me - out come my rose colored glasses. Glasses needed to be able to fit all those around me into that neat little mind box.

Age (and my glasses) makes tolerance for others easier. It also makes me more aware of the little things that often get overlooked. But with my rose colored glasses that is all I am searching for anyways - the little things.
From Monday to Friday, or whatever the workweek looks like - finding those spare moments to look at the positive and not focus on the negative aspects of the job are important. It is okay if you take a peek through your rose colored glasses if you need a pick me up once in a while. What they help you understand is:
1. You have a job
2. Maybe you have a great position or work with others on a wonderful project
3. Maybe you have the ability to do what you want on the job, and people trust you.
4. Maybe you are the employee morale builder.
Whatever your circumstances, see number one above if you on the bridge of your nose and look forward. I don't understand how people can be so dissatisfied with just having enough. Maybe until people begin to understand what it is like to not have enough -that they will begin to see things through a different lens.
If you have something, something you earned - then life is good. If you have nothing, and you haven't earned anything, make personal changes in your life. Do whatever it is to help yourself feel satisfied. Not too much, not too little, just enough to afford a set of rose colored glasses. You'll need them.
