I want to show gratitude for writing such a good feature
article, really will support me out in frequent ways…
Sometimes when life hands you a lemon, you can say, "No, thank you. I think I'll have a big juicy strawberry this time, please.
The same goes for "good" things that happen to us which may turn out to be so good in retrospect.
It presents a foothold for me, however, for hope, which has dwindled in my life as of late as the "bad" appears to have accumulated. Someday, some of this might appear lucky.
Its not easy when one is passing through a hard time and even if they tell you you are not alone you still feeel alone......
This brings to mind why I have never seen a book titled
"Why Good Things Happen to Bad People." It’s as arbitrary as its counterpart. I agree with many of the comments, but growing up in America I really haven't experienced a bad life--a few bad experiences definitely. I often wonder how people view what has happened to them, their cutural, or their country when disaster or war hits.
Yes, some people believe they have been handed a lemon and except what is, is. Others choose to find another path by leaving the situation behind them and finding another spot in the world that makes himor her happier.
I embrace and practice positive thinking every chance I get, it does make difference.
We're not homeless; we're camping. With really crappy gear and no hope of a warm bed and shower ever again. Those police officers aren't chasing us; it's all an elaborate game of tag where we're always it.
That foreclosed house isn't vacant; it's resting from all it's years of faithful service.
Articles like this make me feel wonder if the author really responds with a perky little aphorism when their dog dies, their partner runs off with a bar girl and their car throws a transmission. I'm betting they don't.
All of this is just a means of shaming those suffering into shutting up so that the rest of us can get on with our hedonism.
Facts are realities on ground whatever are the circumstances hence we must try to accept them as they are but not as they look like, only. DailGood Team deserves appreciation
I've always been able to see this in hindsight, but it's harder to buy into when I'm in the midst of of a challenging time!
But now, with enough life experience behind me, and enough retrospect in my pocket, I really can see that the "negative" situations in my life turned out to be a gift. I am trusting more and more that this really is a universal truth, and it's getting easier to remember even in the midst of a "crisis".
There is no "bad" or "good", only our perception of the situation at the time.
I fully go with the spirit of this article. This is how I live and it works fine.
Viktor Frankl mentions the story of a beautiful girl
in the concentration camp grateful for the chance to connect with her spirituality
which was not possible in a hedonistic world. “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a
heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”
― John Milton, Paradise Lost
Absolutely true.. a beautiful article.. I am hooked and shall start practising..
Well, after having been through a lot of "bad" throughout my life, and some "good", I still think it is what it is. Losing your family, your home, everything you loved is still BAD. All of the salient points of this article have traveled through this brain, and have to say, just take each day as it comes and try your best. It's really all you can do.
I love the thinking. Finally a philosophy of looking at a situation without needing to put it on the good/bad balance.
