There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.
Said some famous person.
It's true though.
I can describe my childhood and focus on my suffering. Or focus on the great things that happen and feel very fortunate.
I can worry about my "lonely" future or focus on getting the most out of today.
Count my blessings. I wake up in a war free zone. few if any natural disasters in my neighbourhood. A few bushfires now and then.
I've got enough money to survive for 20 years. If I'm a bit careful. That's better than so many Aussies.
And the BIG one. I've got my health! We take our health for granted until we lose it. My wife got cancer and died last year. And the last 4 months were horrendous. I worry whether I can handle such a tortured ending to my life. Time to start praying harder I suspect. I worry about karma. Like God is going to punish me for treating you all so badly, for example. we have to be ready for his retribution. Am I tough enough?
No. 😃
