Seeing The Bright Side of Things

* If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don't despair. There are people in
this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

* Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for years.

* Should you despair over a relationship gone bad, think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

* Should you grieve the passing of another weekend, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

* Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

* Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

* Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking ‘what is my purpose?’, be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

* Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness,
ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them.
