I read this short piece of wisdom
THE GRUMPY & THE GRATEFUL
It is my observation that senior citizens can be broadly categorised into two groups.
Those that are grumpy, and these who are grateful.
I believe that life's inevitable disappointments, broken
hearts and lost dreams will, if you allow them, make you bitter, resentful and angry.
Somewhere in our life's journey we choose to focus on the
garbage or the gold.
(Often the gold is hidden in the garbage!)
If you dwell on the garbage we become grumpy.
If we look at the gold we become grateful.
Life is crap. Life is beautiful.
Life is both.
The question is, which will you focus on?
