“Challenging times tend to put things in perspective and drive us into a fuller appreciation of life.” … Susanne
Like most people on good old Planet Earth I’ve had my share of challenging times. Like everyone I wish that I could have learned whatever lesson was inherent in those times through gentler means. However, it would seem that all of us learn the most deeply when the circumstances have the sharpest edge. Why is that do you suppose?
There’s so much negative junk in the news that if we were to believe the newscasters we’d have to conclude that nothing good ever happens … but I know that that’s just not true. LOTS of good things happen … both on a small, individual basis right up to larger scale group initiatives. So why don’t the people who could make a difference report the positive stuff?
I don’t pretend to understand their reasons for being a collective of Grumpy Gus’ and Gertrudes. That notwithstanding The Girls and I have come to some decisions. We’ve decided to: 1) appreciate every good thing that happens … no matter how small … every day, 2) Spend less time listening to The News and more time bogeying to our Heart’s Song and 3) Walk with Life, Talk with Life and Allow Life’s voice to be our primary motivator. So far … so good!
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
