Life Sucks, Get Over It!

"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are often more dull than otherwise. Life is like an old-time rail journey - delays, side tracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jots interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

Amen. We wouldn't recognize the goodness if we weren't used to the bad.

I think the trick is not only to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride, but learning to enjoy the bad putts, tough beef and dull job (thank goodness I don't have one!). And when you absolutely can't enjoy it, tolerance is good. Laughing at it may even be better.
