I know people who have had their fair share of rough luck, but ever the optimist, I try to think of something good to come out of it. I'm not always like this, by the way.
I think of something I read a while back that was written to make you look at things differently.
A woman was on her way to work and spilled coffee all over suit just as she was arriving at her office. She was angry, but knew she had to go back home and change, which she did. She never went back to work.
She worked at the Twin Towers in New York City and the date was September 11th.
