Back and forth between smooth sailing and ‘why did this have to happen to me’?

Difficult to imagine managing life’s busy, challenging, unrelenting tasks without a positive outlook.

For most of my life it was back and forth between smooth sailing and ‘why did this have to happen to me’.

Now?

Never complain.

Never feel sorry for yourself.

Work hard. Stay focused. Have as much fun as you can while doing it all.

It will not slow down until we die.

I’m on board. Reminded of Blessed Mother Theresa’s advice: along the lines of: When people belittle, anger, doubt, don’t trust you, be happy anyway. For it was never between you and the world. It’s between you and God.

Lorie, your frame of reference (perspective) is what transforms us from survivors to thrivers.

Life is hard.

For everyone.

Even the ones that seem immune.

They are not.

They are just using all they have to do as you suggest.
