I vow to interpret every experience as a direct healing of the Goddess with my soul (Rob Brezsny)
The Optimistic Frog Two frogs fell in a deep bowl, one was an optimistic soul, but the other took the gloomy view. "We shall drown," he cried without more adieu. So with a last despairing cry he flung up his legs and said good-bye.
Quoth the other frog with a merry grin, "I can't get out, but I won't give in; I'll just swim around till my strength is spent, Then will I die the more content." Bravely he swam till it would seem his struggles began to churn the cream. On top of the butter at last he stopped, and out of the bowl he gaily hopped. What of the moral? 'Tis easily found: If you can't hop out, keep swimming around (Author unknown)
I am ‘swimming’, interpreting each experience as part of the ‘healing’ of my inner Goddess. Being ever optimistic.
I think life is easier if one is optimistic. It must be very hard dealing with each experience as high-rocky-insurmountable-mountain.
I will go on churning cream until the butter-making is done.
