I must have the wisest friends because I am constantly stealing their thoughts.
One recently shared with me her perspective of life…that it’s like a deck of cards, constantly reshuffled, re-dealt. Some days you get a really good hand. You might even get two good hands in a row, but, sooner or later, the hand will be lousy.
We all know to play the hand you’re dealt as best you can. But, beyond that, my thought is to always - always – appreciate the good hand. And do two things with it. Think intentionally of how many points are in that hand (financially? physically? emotionally? spiritually?) and then bank some of those points.
Because you are going to need something to draw on, later, when the hand is really, really bad.
