“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”—Frances Hodgson Burnett, “The Secret Garden”—

As a response to yesterday’s article, a wise friend sent me the following:

“Many years ago, shortly after my wife died, my father was visiting me and I was very blue and low in spirit.  I wondered to him why I was left with a child I did not know how to raise?  Why I had been singled out to carry burdens beyond my strength?  He said, ‘If you hear static, noises, bad music, or other unpleasant sounds it’s time to change the station.”’—Robert E. Hicks—

Sometimes it’s like there is a large boulder that fell on the road, blocking all travel front of us. The rock is too big to move. We must study a while before we realize that the alternative plan would involve going over or around the barrier. Again, “It’s time to change the station.”

“We do not succeed in changing things according to our desire, but gradually our desire changes.”–Marcel Proust

When adversity sets in and it seems like there is nothing that can be done, we can back off and look at the problem from a different perspective. We can ask, “What are the possible outcomes of this situation? Which of these outcomes are acceptable?”  Most of the time an alternative solution or situation works out well in the long run.

Share a smile.
