Count yourself lucky


I used to like to say “If that’s the worst thing that happens to you today, you can count yourself lucky.”

I said it to myself more than anyone else. In fact I may never have said it to anyone’s face directly. People who need to hear it are the least open to it.

But it’s almost always true. In ten years I won’t remember the worst thing that happened to me today. I bet you won’t either.

That makes this a pretty good day, globally speaking.
