The Leprosy Question

Next time you’re having a bad day, remember to put things in perspective. Are you really having a bad day or are you perceiving what’s happening in your life as bad? If I have a day that’s not going as planned, I like to ask myself a simple yes or no question: Do I have leprosy? If the answer is no, then I’m having a good day. If the answer is yes, then I ask myself a follow-up question: Am I on fire? If the answer is no, then I’m having a good day. If the answer is yes, then I ask myself a follow-up question: Am I in a fireworks factory? If the answer is no, then I’m having a good day. If the answer is yes, then I hope there are some people nearby who will be able to enjoy the show. A bad day is in the eye of the beholder, so if you’re having a bad day, behold a bit differently. Ask yourself the important questions and realize that things could always be worse, if they’re really even that bad to begin with. Chances are, they aren’t. In fact, they might even be blessings in disguise! ….Unless you have leprosy and you’re on fire in a fireworks factory…
