Motivation Monday: Attitide

A grey outlook reminds me of Eeyore = "Woe is me..."; think the world is dark and gloomy and it will become dark and gloomy. I know it's trite but it's also tried and true - look at the positive side of things, add some humor, don't be afraid to laugh at yourself.

I have two author friends fighting for their lives against cancer and they both are maintaining a positive outlook and their humor. They can't change the fact that they have cancer but they can change their outlook on it. Both are doing well and continue to laugh in the face of terrible adversity.

Can we do any less?


  1. Keeping a sense of humour is definitely a great asset at any time but especially in situations like this. Best wishes to your friends.

  2. Humor does help pull us through the hard times. Good thing to remember. :)

  3. When our son, Joshua, was told that his brain tumor could not be entirely removed and that it would kill him in a few years, he thought about it and said, "Well, I guess I won't have to worry about saving for retirement."

    That wry, if dark, sense of humor carried us all through the next few years. Laughter really is the best medicine.

  4. Thank you, everyone. I know a good attitude went a long way to keeping my late husband going before cancer finally took its toll. Michael, so sorry to hear about your son.
