… but thinking makes it so…

We had a fire that destroyed our garage, one of our cars, and contaminated our entire house.

Is it good or is it bad? 

The insurance company told us they would pay for a new car and to rebuild the house anew.

Is it good or is it bad? 

During the fire, we had to run out in the middle of the night barefoot and leaving all our possessions behind.

Is it good or is it bad?  

Because of the pandemic and remote work and school, we were able to move into a distant house without having to worry about commute or school bus routes.

Is it good or is it bad?

It is time to stop this game of good and bad. It’s a plain waste of time and mental energy. Why ponder whether something is good or bad for a week, for a day, or even for a minute? In an instant, the world shifts, and the circumstances change. And what was important yesterday is no longer relevant.

“For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so…” Hamlet, Act II, Scene II

      Isn’t it? I’ve said it in the past, and so many people have said it before me, but it takes life experiences to finally sink in!

      Thanks for the words of kindness and best wishes to you, Barb!
