Laugh 'Til Your Sides Ache
"Trouble came knocking, but hearing laughter hurried away."
- Benjamin Franklin
When in our lives have we gotten into true, regrettable trouble? More often than not, it is during unhappy times, when we do not feel hopeful. Just as the drug dealer seeks out unhappy, vulnerable people, trouble often finds those who are already feeling a little lost. If we focus on the positive and work from there, we have hope, and we smile and laugh. Positive people would often not even tend to see "trouble" as trouble; positive people would see it as a temporary problem and would quickly run it out of town.
TODAY I WILL FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE, AND I WILL HAVE HOPE FOR MY FUTURE.
