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.)

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.
