Why is that when 99 out of 100 things go right, I get stuck on the one thing that is going wrong. Often it seems there’s a voice in my head trying to convince me that every silver lining has a cloud!
While I know that it’s dangerous for problems to be ignored, dismissed, and minimised, and that despite the motivational insta bloggers sharing a message to that you just need to be thankful “for” all that happens (how can you be thankful for a so many wiped out by Covid??) I also need not to despair!
So, today I’m encouraging myself and my mates to have an attitude of gratitude, recognising that by talking openly with one another in the times when it going right and going wrong, we can find the balance between grumpy cynics or unrealistic optimism.
