Things Could Be Better and They Will Be

May 31, 2011

If you saw a homeless person with a sign that read “things could be worse, you could be me” (real person and real sign), what would go through your mind?

When we are presented with one of life’s tests or struggles do we tell ourselves that “things could be worse”? Or does a friend try to comfort us by telling us about someone whose situation is worse. While that might momentarily lift our feelings, it doesn’t get us up. The challenge is to remind yourself that you matter because your life has a purpose. Allowing those feelings to fester does not allow you to fulfill your purpose. Sing along with me “The sun’ll come out tomorrow” from “Annie”

P.S. If you see that homeless person giving him some charity will definitely lift you up. Maybe that’s why he was presented to you?
