I like this, because it takes looking on the bright side a step further. In fact, reframing is one of my favorite coping mechanisms, and a lot of the time I can really turn my attitude around. How we package and present life to ourselves makes all the difference in whether we manage to enjoy the ups and downs that will always mark the journey. Maybe we can't and ought not turn the downs to ups (nor would we even want to turn the ups to downs), but we certainly can explore the upside of down and latch onto it as best we can. Hey, if you can't move the mountain, own the climb!
Things are never as bad as they seem.
Every nightmare is also a dream.
When the monsters loom large,
paint their toenails. Take charge.
Laugh or cry; it's your call. Stage that scene!
