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.
Lilo, this is a good thought. But there are some people for whom a positive attitude, or just the ability to make lemonade out of lemons, is so difficult that they may not find hope in this thought. I am describing my current boyfriend. And me, when I'm at my lowest.
Lilo, that *good thought* reminds me of a Yogic saying, that
"One sees the world as it it, but the world is as one sees it".
(I've posted this before, but it's an eternal truth.)
Gibran, always a favorite.
Love your good thought. Glass half full or glass half empty. I try to keep mine half full all the time. So the stove blows up - hey, I don't have to cook.
