Make today a good day

caricature-1-a

This is a caricature of David and me in 1979.  He had a mustache back then.

Many people focus on the bad stuff in their lives. I tell them to count their blessings, because there are other people who are worse off.

Take my life, for example. I experienced much hardship as a child and as a single woman.  Marriage to David made my life better.  However, I am not in perfect health and have to take medication for my various ailments.

If I brooded over all of my problems, I would be so depressed that I would never be able to get out of bed, and nothing would get done.

When I wake up in the morning, I try to focus on today. My objective is to make today a good day.  If I can accomplish that on a daily basis, then, by golly, I will be able to look back on all of the good days that comprise my life.

    Good point. As Ann Landers advised, “When life’s problems seem overwhelming, look around and see what other people are coping with. You may consider yourself fortunate.”
