    Interesting saying. Although, I tend to reject it personally. I believe that you have a choice about what your life is about. You choose happiness or not. That is why God gives us Free will.

    Life can be a bowl of Cherries… you just have to choose it to be.

    Everywhere around us and at every turn we are innundated with advertising that is aimed at convincing us that we can buy our way out of what ails us. Corporations hire public relations specialist who are paid to tell us what we want to hear. Apparently, wht we want to hear is that life is a bowl of cherries so we should step right up right up and buy what you “need”.

    I’ve even noticed counseling advice that is to the effect of if you are feeling down then take care of yourself. That may be sound advice if what is meant by it is not misinterpreted for we can all benefit by contacting our inner self and taking care of our unresolved “business”. However, if it is interpreted to mean that we ought to buy ourselves expensive products to make ourseleves happy then it may in fact be enabling those women, who are addicted to shopping who continue to try and purchase the happiness that can be neither bought or sold.

    Life for those of us with chronic health problems may not be a bowl of cherries but being physically compromised can provide us with the ability to savor the flavor of every happy moment. This is what I aim to do.

    I agree with amberfireinus – but depending on the situation it is true, in our darkest days we have to remember that there are cherries out there, its just not all cherries because how else will we appreciate their flavour?

    Guys, I know that what my father meant by that is I should not to expect to grow up with a perfect life. That stuff happens. And he was right to drill that into me. It has helped me to have perspective on my health problems. To remember that I’m not a victim…this is a part of MY life story, and everyone has stuff that happens to them…
