Have you ever read the news, listened to the radio or watched the TV and thought “Boy! Why is it all bad news, doesn’t anything good ever happen?!”. I suppose there’s always some article about good “happenings” or positive “things” but it seems to me that the majority of news talk is about a hopeless and dangerous world. But I wonder what your response is? Do you feel consigned to the impending doom or do you think you can make a difference or change, or perhaps you don’t care! I think this may be why the article I found in my usual weekly research has really touched me! I’ve been encouraged by what is a great example of an older person speaking from her own experience and what she has learned in life and talking about the attitude she takes when faced with adversity. This is the article and when you’ve read it I’d like to hear your thoughts.
Have you experienced loss, deprivation, and change you didn’t anticipate? How did you respond to it? I’d really like to hear from you, so please share your thoughts and ideas amongst the community of readers in the comments section below.
Thanks for reading!
