Some days are just bad days, that's all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that's just the way it is!

I totally agree, Paul. Even though I'm generally of an optimistic mindset, there are those days... when nothing goes right. All you can do is roll with the punches.

Hello Paul - is this a recipe of reality or perspective?   Perhaps a combination of both plus some food for thought.

Paul, that is so true.  A couple of weeks ago I lost a friend to cancer, it was a bad day.  Had to remember all the fun times together though.

Dita Von Teese is so right.  Without the bad days, the good days wouldn't seem as bright.  Life needs a little contrast.

Sometimes I just roll with the punches and shift my direction and thinking to a better feeling thought - or go for a walk - anything to get things moving again.  If I were out walking by wherever you took that beautiful photo Paul I for sure would be in a great mood - and very relaxed too!

Hi Paul,

This is true. However, when I start to have a bad day, I remember all the blessings I have, and it helps me to change it. My AC just sprang a leak.  But we set up 2 portable units to help us get by for the next 6 weeks.

Paul, the quote you chose for the day reminds me of the thought and philosophy of Kahlil Gibran, the Prophet, author who wrote the book A TEAR AND A ;SMILE.  He felt the true experience is a combination of both.  However, Paul, your photo seems to tell me:  IT'S GONNA BE A FABULOUS DAY!!!
