Worst Day Ever / Even Better

Two people can have totally different views of the same day

How are you today

The choice is yours

~ ~ ~  Worst Day Ever  ~ ~ ~

Today was the absolute worst day ever  

And don’t try to convince me that  

There’s something good in every day  

Because, when you take a closer look, 

This world is a pretty evil place.  

Even if  

Some goodness does shine through once in a while  

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.  

And it’s not true that  

It’s all in the mind and heart  

Because  

True happiness can be attained  

Only if one’s surroundings are good  

It’s not true that good exists  

I’m sure you can agree that  

The reality  

Creates  

My attitude  

It’s all beyond my control  

And you’ll never in a million years hear me  

say   

Today was a very good day

 

~ ~ ~ NOW READ IT AGAIN ~ ~ ~

Today was a very good day 

say 

And you’ll never in a million years hear me 

It’s all beyond my control 

My attitude 

Creates 

The reality 

I’m sure you can agree that 

It’s not true that good exists 

Only if one’s surroundings are good 

True happiness can be attained 

Because 

It’s all in the mind and heart 

And it’s not true that 

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last. 

Some goodness does shine through once in a while 

Even if 

This world is a pretty evil place. 

Because, when you take a closer look,  

There’s something good in every day  

And don’t try to convince me that  

Today was the absolute worst day ever 

 

~ ~ ~  EVEN BETTER ~ ~ ~ 

Though the fig tree does not bud

and there are no grapes on the vines, 

Though the olive crop fails 

and the fields produce no food, 

Though there are no sheep in the pen

and no cattle in the stalls, 

yet I will rejoice in the Lord,

I will be joyful in God my Savior. 

The Sovereign Lord is my strength; 

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, 

He enables me to go on the heights.

Habakkuk 3: 17-19
