Hi Carla, I/WE REALLY CARE, IF YOU CARLA LOSE WEIGHT!
It's all true, the world is full of negative things that happen to us on a constant basis.
For a while there I kept thinking, gee when it rains, it pours.
I then noticed one of my friends named Peter who was always calm, smiling and grateful.
I noticed that his wife left him for an internet boyfriend so he was now living in poverty.
He lost all 6 kids to her when she left but still had to pay her heaps of maintenance money.
Once his kids became troublesome, expensive, unemployed teens she dumped 2 of them back on him.
He injured his back when he tumbled down a big flight of stairs whilst doing his security job in a rain storm.
Peter developed a deep vein thrombosis in his right leg for 6 months and even when he thought he might die of it like his father did and his next door neighbour did (neighbour was also his best friend) he still had a sense of peace and appreciation for the world and the people he chose to surround himself with.
I asked Pete' why he's always so happy and never grumbles about anyone or anything, he said, "There's no point getting upset with things, they're going to happen regardless."
And similarly Doctor Phil says, "It's not about what happens to you, it's about how you handle it, how are you going to allow it to affect you."
And Dolly's quote is "Look deep for the good in every bad situation, no matter how small it seems."
