You know what they say about how we should make lemonade if life should throw us some lemons?
Yes, things do not always go the way we want them to. That is life.
You know the saying that it does not rain but it pours?
Yes, bad things could happen one after another in a short span of time. That is life.
Unless we are some highly enlightened priest or monk, for examples, being a mere mortal, it is hard for us not to be affected in a negative way.
I could probably write a sequel to "A series of unfortunate events" based on what happened to me in the last few months.
When a friend found out, she said that my full time job is now a patient because I have been visiting hospitals (yes, in the plural).
It can get quite depressing especially if we know what hospital food is like. Yes, yucky!
The important thing is to try and stay positive. Yes, I know it is easier said than done but, still, we have to find happiness where we can.
So, when they served me a breakfast of tasteless oatmeal, half boiled egg and Milo, what did I do?
Alone, the Milo drink was too sweet. Alone, the oatmeal was too bland. Hmmmm...
What if I were to mix them together? Voila:
Haha. I had chocolate oatmeal which wasn't so bad.
Working towards financial freedom, those of us who have some advantages in life might already find it tough and those of us who have none will definitely find it even tougher.
Yes, life might deal us a bad hand of cards but that is life. The important thing is to stay positive when given some rather unhappy circumstances and try to find that silver lining.
Things don't always go our way. That is life.
If we want a better life, we will have to find a way.
