I believe there’s usually a way (maybe always a way) to have the time of my life with whatever I’m doing.

When thoughts creep in about how much better someone else has it, I remind myself that people can be absolutely miserable in the lap of luxury.

The real treasure is focusing on how good I have it now, and having faith that everything I’ve been through has been for the best.

  1. That is so true. Sometimes I sit for a while and wonder what I would do with my life if I didn’t have to work for a living. And then I look at the examples close to me… and they don’t seem happy. So I take a deep breath and go back to work. It could be worse.
    Have a nice day!

  2. Hooray for the wonderful Kent Wayne!!! It also works in reverse, too-The bad things you experience are yours and not to be compared with others. I may not have cancer, but being a person with diabetes and MS suck in their own way. When you live in a world that isn’t as cheery as it could be, make it as cheery as you can. Find the itty bitty blessings that wander past and be glad for them. People say Pollyanna was silly, I rather appreciated her! This is why I like reading your blog, it makes me smile, laugh, drool, giggle, and enjoy.

    • I agree with you! There are some folks, amazingly enough, who say cancer is the best thing that ever happened to them! I believe that as incredible as it may seem, it may be possible to view any adverse event in the same light, and also vice versa: be completely dissatisfied no matter how great the fortune or luck.

  3. Finding some level of joy in everyday life is a key to my survival. I’ve had some pretty bad days. I’ve allowed myself to compare my life to those who seem better off. I have even wondered on occasion if it’s worth it to keep going.
    Fortunately, though, I’ve come to understand something similar to what you’ve said here. I am who I am and where I am because of me and how I’ve chosen to act and behave each moment of each day. I don’t know if there is a fate or destination, but I do feel and think that I’ve done okay so far, given the challenges and situations I have encountered. Could I be better off? Maybe… but how can I know that for certain? Even when I do realize my mistakes, I understand that all I can do from there is fix what I can and keep going from there with another life lesson in my arsenal of knowledge and wisdom. So, why not enjoy some of the things going on in my life?

    • Indeed. “Better and worse” seem like rabbit holes at best, tormentors at worst. After years of rigid discipline and demanding expectations, I like to reach in the direction of general improvement, and follow spontaneous inspiration. This allows me to keep moving towards general positivity, and be delighted by the unexpected aid I receive along the way.
