How Do You Come Across To Others?


This Week's Simple Tip

I have a couple of house window screens that have been screaming "please replace me" for some time now. Knowing that they were not standard stocked sizes, I had put off going the 22 miles round trip to drop them off, and then pick up the replacements a week later. I decided that today was the day. When I got there, the guy at the counter asked me how I was doing and I replied "great, even if it is a Monday." He went on to say that "you sure don't sound like most people who come in here," so I replied "that's too bad given how truly blessed we all are." It reminded me of this very clever poem that went viral ... please gift yourself by reading it all the way to the end:

Today was the absolute worst day ever And don’t try to convince me that There’s something good in every day Because, when you take a closer look, This world is a pretty evil place. Even if Some goodness does shine through once in a while Satisfaction and happiness don’t last. And it’s not true that It’s all in the mind and heart Because True happiness can be attained Only if one’s surroundings are good It’s not true that good exists I’m sure you can agree that The reality Creates My attitude It’s all beyond my control And you’ll never in a million years hear me say Today was a very good day

Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,

And see what I really feel about my day.
