A good "secret" to remember.

Can't really agree Marsha....
What about babies who are born with major handicaps????
And drunk drivers killing and maiming other people????
The list is endless, of misfortunes that overtake people when
they least expect it.

You might want to watch it again then. You become what you think.........if you always think negative thoughts you will become a negative person. We cannot go through life with blinders on.....the things you mentioned are horrific I agree but it is how you handle it personally that matters. I still like the saying.."if life gives you lemons, make lemonade". You CAN choose how you deal with problems.

I loved it!

When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.

Good and bad things happen to all of us. That does not determine if we are happy or not. Our attitude toward what life brings us does. You find people who have great material wealth, yet are unhappy and others who have very little and yet are content. You can choose to be happy and find the good in any situation you face, or you can look for the bad and you will find that as well.

True, Christiansinger, but it's nice to be happy while having a full belly and health.

I also like the saying "When life gets tough, the tough go fishing"

Another one is "Expecting life to be fair is like expecting the bull
not to charge - because you're a vegetarian"

Marsha, Thank you for sharing such an inpirational view and listening pleasure.
I feel that one's success depends a lot upon the amount of determination one has
to make the dreams and goals in life possible. It may not be the easiest hill to climb, but
with enough determination, evenually the hill was worth the climb.

This saying always helps me when things get tough and it seems to fit here:

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.
Kahlil Gibran
