“It’s going to get worse before it gets better”   Leave a comment


I was just thinking about this quote, and I’ve come up with a bit of a different spin on it. Try to think about it from the viewpoint of appreciation, rather than as a comparison of standards in a tangible sense. When we go through the hard times, struggling and fighting for every inch,  we are able to appreciate so much more what we have always taken for granted. Sometimes to change our perceptions our whole life has to be flipped upside down. When you feel like you’re going through some tough times, when your days just seem like a never ending sequence of poor luck, just stop and appreciate what you have. I’m sure all of you that are reading this are still alive – that’s better than the one million people worldwide that won’t make it through this week. It pays to put things into perspective.
