The other day I was talking to a friend and somehow we got to the topic of suffering, and how some say that in order to be a poet one has to suffer, and then she said “Don’t we all? We all suffer.”
Yes, we all do. We all have our share of pain and suffering in the world, we all have our problems, and we all have choices we can make. We can either let our problems trample us to death, or we can learn to shake them off and keep going. We can choose to let ourselves drown in a sea of problems or we can learn to swim.
Life is full of half full/half empty type of situations. Be a glass half full kind of person.
You know what they say, some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad. Other things just make you swear and curse. When you’re chewing on life’s gristle, don’t grumble, give a whistle, and this will help things turn out for the best. And… always look on the bright side of life.
So just purse your lips and whistle, that’s the thing. And always look on the bright side of life.
