Recently, through the book-lovers’ site LibraryThing, I have gotten to know a woman who is plagued by two spinal conditions, each of which can be impossibly painful. When I expressed my regret about this, she replied that she always likes to look for a positive and at least her condition gives her plenty of time with some things she loves, books and reading.
Whenever I think about this it helps me to stop with the petty bitching about trivialities, for at least a brief stretch of time.
Thank you for this. I *did* have a whole day of complaining lined up, though….Guess it can wait.
Yes, complaints have a long shelf life.
