Life's like that...
We hear lots of people use this phrase on a regular basis in some shape or form.
Whichever phrase is being used, the message seems to be, there are limitations to what we can do, think or achieve. The 'Life's Like That' phrase seems to come only with a negative tone. For some reason we use it to remind ourselves or others of our limited choices.
This post was inspired by a recent conversation I had about changing a group's work culture.
The thing was, everyone agreed that there is an ideal and they would all like to work in an ideal environment but everyone also agreed that it cant be done.
Ideal was something for the management books and stories. I heard a lot of 'Life's Like that' variations from everyone. Everyone left the conversation with a list of why things will remain the way they are and with a feeling that they have to just live through it. Find happiness and joy elsewhere.
I think differently. We need to revamp how we use these wonderful words 'Life's Life that'
to live by choice and not by chance
to make changes, not excuses
my self esteem not self pity
the sliver lining not the dark clouds
Love not jealously
to listen to my higher self not others opinions
Life is not supposed to be serious, its a journey. Its where you find love and joy and happiness with the many delicious contrasts you experience!
Life's Like that! Its beautiful, forgiving, inspiring, entertaining, powerful and funny.
