Half full for you?


I'm not sure who started all the bad news, but I am so not digging it. Gloom doom everywhere and not a glimmer, not a sparkle to give us hope. Not here dear readers. I've had it. I'm bustin out. Somebody's got to take this badness, this madness and give it a shake and remind people that things will get better.
How?
As silly as it may sound...think a happy thought. Be a child, close your eyes, and make a wish. Think of the best outcome. Be simple. Be creative. Be nice to someone. Smile. Give thanks.
On Monday, I woke up with pressure on my right eye. Immediately I thought "brain tumor" (see my Woody Allen post earlier to understand). On my way to the doctor I decided I should be thankful because I have two eyes and I'd still be able to see with my left eye.
Okay...it was only an eye infection and drops will clear it up...but the point is...I could have been all wackadoodled out with losing an eye...but I turned it around. Turn it around, America. Turn it around.

I was just having this conversation with a friend. So many tragic things happening everywhere. It has to start somewhere...you are right....turn it around. Great cartoon.

I think we HAVE to be positive in times like these. We are strong and as tragic as some stories are-when life gives you lemons...ya gotta make it turn into the sweetest lemonade and be thankful(one day) for the lemons you had to make it.

Half full!
glad your eye is better!! I stopped watching TV years ago and it keeps the doom and gloom to a minimum that I am exposed too. It will get better, one smile at a time:)
