Perspective


"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful." ~ Buddha

Not seen that quote before but I love it - going to print it out and stick it near my work computer. Thanks for the positive statement....

An absolutely fabulous quote. There is a poem that I love that is similar. It starts with, "Just for today" and continues listing all of the things that you promise to yourself that you won't do...but just for today. Of course, today is everyday but when you tackle one day at a time it seems possible. It puts things into perspective. Thank you for the reminder.
