During difficult times, it is nice to have something to put things in perspective.
“One of the nuggets of wisdom from an old friend that I will always remember is how to face problems and be positive., no mater the situation.
She loved to tell the story of how everyone could go to a field — about the size of a football field — and line up around the perimeter. While standing on the edge of the field, each person is given the opportunity to throw their problems into the middle of the field. One all the problems have been thrown in, you have your choice of which ones to pick up and take home. Most people will probably pick up their own problem and go back home, realizing that they really didn’t have it that bad after all.”
