Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

A little more Monday morning motivation.

This is getting a bit of theme, isn’t it?

Last week I was talking death.

This week, Monty Python.

I love “The Life Of Brian”.

The Life Of Brian, is probably best known for the song ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’.

A rather dark, but funny, scene at the end of the film.

“When you’re chewing on life’s gristle,
Don’t grumble, give a whistle,
And this’ll help things turn out for the best”

We all know that being negative doesn’t help. It doesn’t make a bad situation come good. It just makes the whole journey a lot more difficult. And a lot more difficult for those around you.

None of us knows what is around the corner.

Facing it with positivity, and in some cases humour, may make it a little more bearable.

At this point I’ll hand you over to Charlie Chaplin, and wish you all a wonderful week filled with hope, love and laughter.

“Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.” ― Charles Chaplin

    When I was a child, I grep up thinking my grandmother LOVED cleaning, washing, ironing… It was only when I was in my early twenties she told me how she would hate those jobs. But “they need to be done, so the options are that you do them and feel miserable or you do them and feel contented. I prefer to be contented”.

    I’d like to think she showed me the importance of choosing to be happy, no matter what. 🙂

    What a brilliant example from your Grandma, Apple. I think I’m going to try to change my mindset!

    Always look on the bright side. I always try, but sometimes, when life isn’t quite going the way you hoped and you’re feeling a little dissatisfied, it can be easy to forget. I think it takes practice – I’m a work in progress… aren’t we all?!

    So true, although I’m still working on this as well 🙂
