On The Bright Side
I try to keep a sunny disposition as often as possible, which can be tough when you have been on/off sick for three months. On the more rough days, I think about two specific things to keep myself up-beat.
First thing is looking for all the smaller joys. Today was a pretty rough day (those are the credentials for this post), but their were two small things that were awesome: 1) It was sunny and…2) you know how some times you have this itch that you can’t reach in the middle of your back…? Well, I got it today. No big deal.
Second thing I remember on a rough day is an old Irish prayer that reads “…thank you for the thorns so that we might recognize the rose.” So, keeping that in mind, I try to be thankful on unfortunate, depressing, or even completely ruinous days because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to fully enjoy the great days like I had in Big Bear during the week.
Oh wait, I also had Wheat Thins today, and that definitely goes in the win column.
