Things aren’t always what they seem
You can’t have a light without a dark to stick it in. – Arlo Guthrie
So far the above quote is the best description of what I consider true. But try explaining it to someone and all you get is a puzzled look at best (though the most common reaction is outrage/disbelief/name calling and my favorite- silence).
The quote might also explain why people bitch so much. We are never happy with the way things are. A common saying is that things could always be better.
But what if something can’t be better? How are we to measure ourselves if this is as good as it gets?
I prefer the saying that things could always be worse. 🙂
Flat tire? It could be worse it could’ve blown while I was driving.
Dentist visit? It could be worse. I’m not sure how, but at least the dentist I go to isn’t as sadistic as some. 😉
Going to Hell? It could be worse. I could just blindly follow rules all my life and still end up there.
Generally, while things could be worse they aren’t. I may bitch and moan that life is boring, but that is only because I don’t have drama going on. I’m just not a soap opera. 😛 Despite this fact some try to make my life (or afterlife) into one.
My favorite line was- ‘You must be miserable away from God’s light’
Nope. Actually I’m happy and relatively healthy.
Speaking of health….just when I thought I was getting over my issues a different but still the same thing comes up. >_< I’m hoping it was just the pills I was taking that caused the whole thing so I’m laying off them for a day or two… or three. If I get back to what passes for normal within the week I’ll be good. If not…well…I’m not sure what I’ll do. Going to the doctor may actually have to be an option. ~sighs~
Could be worse….
