You know how you can hear someone (or maybe more than one person) tell you something over and over, but it just goes in one ear and out the other? You hear what they're saying but you never take the time to actually apply it to your life. Well, for years I've heard people talk about the importance of changing your mindset and thinking postively. Variations of phrases like "change your perspective and you'll change your life" and "if you can't change your circumstances, then change your perspective", but I've never really stopped to think about how true those statements are. . . until now.
