Monday musings…

Your living is determined not so much by
what life brings to you as by
the attitude you bring to life;
Not so much by what happens to you as by
the way your mind looks at what happens.
Khalil Gibran

Sometimes life is good and sometimes it’s bad. Sometimes it is beautiful and sometimes it’s ugly. Whatever our lives are like at any given time is pretty much up to us. How we act, or react, to the happenings in life makes a difference.

In bad and ugly times we can yell and scream, we can hide and cry, feel sorry for ourselves and be miserable. Or we can call and ask for help, get up and work on solutions to the problems and be productive. Most importantly, we must remember that we made it through tough times before, and not only survived but are stronger and smarter than we were. The good and beautiful life will return with all its happiness and joy.

The good and beautiful life is a treasure. Granted, sometimes that treasure gets hidden under a lot of trash and it takes determination to find it again. And when we find it again we may have to do some work to get it back to what it was. In truth, difficult times help us understand the worth of the treasure.

Bottom line:
It’s all about attitude.

  1. Yes, it’s all up to us how we handle things…glass have filled or half empty. It’s an art to look at the good, but one worth striving for. Love your brevity as always…how you get to the heart of things…no fuss, no muss.

    1. I am a half-full kind of person, I wasn’t always, but half-full is so much better than half-empty. Brevity isn’t easy. It does take some work to whittle down wordiness. I think we have the no fuss, no muss thing in common.

  2. Our approach to good and bad is key. Our approach to anything we encounter is key.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Patricia. ♥

    1. Yes, we make our lives what they are in the way we see and respond to the good and bad of it.
