Being Satisfied

E_PlayingCardQueen_DBDesignsSometimes life deals you cards that you think sucks.   Maybe they do, but how you choose to play those cards is what counts.   You can choose to flail yourself about and bemoan the cards you have been dealt.     I think that we so often forget that much of what happens in life we have no control over except how we react to it.   We go on and on about what happened to us.   Instead we should be putting on our big girl panties and pulling our boot straps up and deciding how we are going to play those cards.     Many folks have been dealt worse cards.   Lots of folks don’t have the skills to play their hand good or bad.   I am not advocating a Pollyanna attitude, but I am suggesting that we look for ways that we can put ourselves back in the driver seat of our life and drive on.    So take a good look at what you have been dealt and decide how you want to play your hand.   You can play your hand better than anyone else can.

  1. I love this and have come more and more to this realization as of late! It’s funny how, sometimes, things have to get REALLY bad before it shakes you awake and you decide you’d rather look at the good things, figure out how to minimize the bad, and focus your energies on the things you love.

  2. I agree. there is someone out there that is much worse off than me. I’m so blessed.It is so much better to have a positive attitude and be happy than to be negative and always complaining and unhappy.

  3. Some good advice to think about. It’s oh-so-much easier to complain about things we don’t like in our life, but that gets you nowhere. Much better to learn to deal with the ups and downs, of which there are plenty! I always try to remember there are many, many folks who have it so much worse.

  4. I, for one, don’t have a problem with a Pollyanna attitude! Life is so much better, regardless of our “cards,” if we can count our blessings. Maybe it’s that action that puts us back in the driver’s seat? Thank you for your thoughtful post!

I'd love it if you let me know what you thought of this post.
