Perspective II

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered. (G. K. Chesterton, 20th century English writer)

 It’s really a question of how we look at life, isn’t it? The pessimist sees the half-empty cup while the optimist sees the cup as half full. When the unexpected happens to us, do we see it as an unwanted interruption or as an opportunity to learn, to reevaluate priorities, or, perhaps to help someone? It probably begins with our attitude toward life and our desire to be and do right.

The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right. (Psalm 34:15)
