Do Thorn Bushes Have Roses?

Do rose bushes have thorns or do thorn bushes have roses?

I was complaining about the pain of physical therapy yesterday when it occurred to me that I need to STOP!

The pain from the shoulder that was replaced was far worse than the temporary pain I am experiencing from the therapy! Enough already!

We humans tend to complain, complain and then complain!

We blurt out frustrations and complaints expecting
some sort of immediate change or reward.

We want success and we want it NOW!

Especially when we are under pressure, we gripe
more than we appreciate what’s going well.

Do rose bushes have thorns or do thorn bushes have roses?

Is the glass half full, or half empty?

We blame and criticize far more often than we are thankful!

A positive attitude gains much more positive results
than the traditional complain-and-blame.

And yet, we demand change from others, thinking
things will be better when they straighten up!

OTHERS are not the problem.
THE PAST is not the problem.

Lack of information is NOT the problem!

A lack of ACTION IS the problem!

If I am not happy with my situation, then I am
the one who can change that situation!!!!!!!!!

I have mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. I complained about having to have surgery on my leg when I was about 12 years of age. I complained until I heard a little girl crying.

She was complaining that her foot was hurting, and it had been amputated the day before. A lot of years have passed, but I can still her her crying every now and then.

It changed my life!

I am NOT your problem. YOU are NOT my problem.

I am NOT where I want to be, but I am NOT where I used to be either. I have a choice: I can complain, or I can appreciate what i have learned and what I have accomplished.

If I am not happy with my situation, then I am
the one who can change that situation!

If you am not happy with your situation, then you are
the one who can change that situation!

LET’S TAKE ACTION.

MAKE IT HAPPEN.
