When you get right down to it, we all know life can be very challenging at times, life can deliver cruel punches, life can deal us some big problems sometimes. Usually our only defense is to build up a strong positive attitude to ward off these situations in our lives. We just need to get more "tough skinned".
My wife and I live in a manufactured home community in Florida six months out of year and we have made many new friends. One of those, however, is one of most remarkable ones we have ever met. Angie is just amazing. Attractive, fun -loving, usually has a big smile. But Angie has a big and unusual health problem. I've never understood all details of her illness but it was caused many years ago when she was diagnosed with polio. And it was before they had a cure for it.
Over years it's affected her whole body. She walks with a cane. One leg is shorter than other one. One foot is smaller than other foot. It's painful for her to walk, too. Consequently she's on very strong medication which has to be changed periodically because it loses it's effectiveness. Just recently she showed up at weekly bingo with velcro braises on both arms. Despite all this she's a real "cut up" whenever you are around her. At home her husband says she really goes through some challenging times but she "bounces back" eventually. He says he don't know how she handles all pain. He says she's "unbelieveable".
I don't know about you but when I have some difficulties to face in my life I try to think just how fortunate I am to be fairly healthy. If you are not quite as fortunate as I I'm sure there is always someone else you know of that is worse off. Anyway remember what Jim Rohn And Robert Stuberg say and begin to do necessary things to have a "sunny day" in your life everyday. Good Luck!
Sunny Days can have a tremendous effect on our attitudes and our well being. Find out how you can trigger that kind of day when it’s not a Sunny Day outside. You’d be surprised how it can happen.
