How’s that for being upbeat when I certainly don’t feel it?
My thought for the day is that I’ve discovered if I’m looking for a way to cheer myself up, I use the maxim, “It could be worse.”
It could always be a lot worse.
The sky isn’t falling, bombs aren’t falling, some body parts might be falling, but that’s a different story.
If we have humor, even gallows humor, we can make any situation a bit better.
My mother just had hip surgery but it wasn’t heart surgery and she’s still alive. It could have been worse.
I don’t know how she’ll make this next chapter of her life the best chapter of her life. That part is tough. But even Professor Morrie in Tuesdays With Morrie found beauty in his situation as he grappled with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Just for today I will remind myself that it could be worse and make the most out today.
