Looking At Life
Hey, look over there, aren’t they the cutest things? With the way they are looking at us all smiles, I guess they think we are pretty cute, too. Well, we are cute but I don’t know that I agree with you about them, because I think people are kind of weird looking.
And now A to Z

The way I See It
There were times in my life that I thought life was awful. I thought it was hard with little reward and mostly sad. When I look back on those times I can see that my attitude was the problem, not life. There were hard and sad times for sure and there were rewards but I didn’t see them. I was looking for an easy life without struggles and hurts. Because I am writing this about myself I can say this…I was really dumb!
I have learned some lessons since the time when I was less than smart. Life is not easy and there are struggles and hurts and these things bring with them hard work to do in life. When we do the work we get strong and resilient. We become more flexible and able to move with the rhythm of life so the ups have safety valves built in and the downs aren’t near-fatal crashes. There are still ups and downs but they aren’t as crazy and frightening.
Everyone looks at life differently. I know life can be hard and at times seem unbearable but these days I choose to look at life as good. Life is a gift, a gift I am usually happy with yet sometimes I would like to exchange it for another. But then I rethink that idea and figure I’ll keep what I have because though I might like it to be a little easier I am smarter now and know it could be a whole lot harder.
The way I see it…even when life is awful it is filled with awe.
