Staying Positive in the Midst of Storm

September 16, 2018 0 By jerichvc

I had limited net access + power interruptions since friday so let me share a lesson. I met 2 neighbors near a river and asked them the same question. Do you think we’ll experience flood in the next hour?

Neighbor 1 said the river will subside and should stop worrying about it. Neighbor 2 is rushing back home, cursed, complained and was feeling hopeless because river will rise and cause flood.

The proverbial phrase pops in my mind: “glass half full or half empty”. Optimism & pessimism. Oh, I smiled for 2 reasons: 1, we won and no flood. 2, “handsome men smile in the midst of storm” -jvc
