"Things turn out the best for the people
who make the best of the way things turn out."

Basketball Coach, John Wooden

Your action for today is to look at a recent situation that didn't go the way you wanted it to and adjust your perspective to see something positive in it.


This is a valuable tool in a marriage
or any relationship or transaction:
Seek the solution, Forgive and Move Forward.

Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary a little early
since they'll be traveling for it and away for a while."

So true - I know a young woman who just got scammed and lost $5000 - she is now siting home feeling depressed and violated.  I wanted to tell her she should feel stupid and angry and move on - but I haven't yet said that. I do think she should pick herself up and dust herself off and MOVE ON!

Hi Whiskey- tell your folks Happy 20th Anniversary!!!  Whatever has happened has already happened, the best we can do is adjust our attitude about it.

I am actually in a situation right now where I am trying to follow Whiskey's advice and I hope that it will work out.

Good morning, Thomas.
Congratulations on 20 years together! I think we've all had plenty of opportunities to make the best of how things turn out. I've said it before, I've become the Queen of finding silvers lining in dark clouds. Practice will do that. 😊
