When Things Go Wrong…

February 8, 2013

Good morning Mintdom!

 “When things go wrong, you’ll find they usually go on getting worse for some time; but when things once start going right, they often go on getting better and better.” – C.S. Lewis

Last night my four-year-old refrigerator stopped running. At first, I thought it was just the light, but on further investigation, I believe it stopped. I checked the breakers out in the garage and all looks well there. I am not griping (much); but yesterday was  just one of those days that that did not go my way. Now it just so happens that I came upon the above quote. At first reading, I thought it was a little depressing. What was there in store for me? Would things get worse? I almost passed it up.

Upon reading the quote again however, it became strangely comforting. I did not feel alone; obviously, C.S. Lewis must have had a couple of ‘those days’. Then I saw the hope in the quote; it says, “When things once start going right, they often go on getting better and better.” When I chose to focus on the ‘getting better and better’ part of the quote, I felt better right away. It is funny how that works!

When daylight comes, I will call the appliance people and they will come out and fix it or I will have to buy a new one. I am hoping for the first not the latter scenario but either way, I choose to focus on the positive. Mostly, I believe that everything happens for a reason and that God, my family and friends can see me through anything and after all, it IS ONLY a refrigerator!

What do you do when things go wrong? How do you handle ‘one of those days’?

AffirMINTion: I focus on the positive and have faith that all will work out in the end.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

  1. When things go wrong…I call my Mom and Dad and soak up their comfort and wisdom. I also get my dose of Mintdom to feel better! Great post! 🙂

      1. Remember the lyrics to that old song: “You gotta, accent..the positive, eliminate…the negative, and don’t mess with mister in between…”…Sure sounds like your kinda song
