My Father gave me advise on how to deal with adversity as I have been going through some medical issues. What He told me was to keep a Positive Mental Attitude. (PMA) While this can be a hard thing to do when all you are getting is bad news and each visit is worse than the last, it is imperative for your own survival. I have come to the conclusion that having the right attitude is even more important than prayer in that it puts the burden and responsibility on one’s self. In short, it is called faith. However, I am not here to teach about faith and the love of God. What I am talking about is the type of attitude that will help us transcend the negative aspects of living and dying in this life.
We all have to play the hand we are dealt and it is not a matter of life being fair of not. It is all about how we play the game.
