The Difference in a Pessimist and Optimist


The Difference in a Pessimist and Optimist

Do you know the difference?

Harry Truman said it this way: 
“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his
opportunities; an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.”


My goodness.  Do I really need to add to this?

Guess not.

The Best I Never Had


The Best I Never Had

The title is NOT a typo.  I’ve had more than my share of things I’ve wanted to never come to pass.  At the time, I thought they would be a grand addition to my life, and this includes jobs, relationships and ‘stuff’.

And now, in retrospect, I can heartily say, “I’m so glad that never came to be.”

Ain’t hindsight grand?

Change May Contain Our Salvation


Change My Contain Our Salvation


One would think with all the changes I’ve endured in my lifetime, I would grow accustomed to change.

Not entirely. 
 
However, I do think I’ve been saved by some changes in my life.  Some of my life experiences, some people I’ve met and two or three places I’ve lived have been a part of my salvation. 

I’ve been redirected by two men named Jim.  I’ve found some really satisfying career direction in a couple of the jobs I’ve held, and one of them paid off in a significant way with an ESOP plan after it was sold.  Who could have predicted that one early on in that career?

Change happens.  That is for sure.

How do we roll with that?
