Here goes blog quote #428...
"We are in good shape for the shape we are in."
-My Aunt Norma -
Once again we here at the Think Tank love the play on words, the quotes that look the same front and backwards. The ones that seem to say identical things but at the same time, say two totally different points.
My Aunt Norma is one of the toughest, most positive people, that works with what she has to work with. You know...the type that plays the cards she has been dealt, as best she can, regardless if its ten and under.
Life is all about HOW we CHOOSE to look at things. Put 10 people in a room with the same exact circumstances and you'd have a mixed bag of reactions. Some would complain, some would feel cheated, some would just deal with it, some would make the best of it, and some would actually feel blessed. It's all about CHOICE of MIND.
When Norma is saying 'we are in good shape, for the shape we are in,' it tells me that she has some issues to contend with( like all of us), but she will attack them with THEE most positive of attitudes. Even to the point of giving thanks to have the chance to deal with the issues. CHOICE of MIND. It's a wonderful thing.
Thanks for the life lesson Aunt Norma; it's a good one!
That's my view...what say you?
