Things to Think About

One time while I was reading my niece's blog, I came across this post. After reading it...I paused for a while and think.....What would you think if you were me? Share us you thoughts if you may; thank you :-)!

In a crowd, a man cracked a joke. The people laughed hard.
After a moment, he cracked the same joke again and a little less people laughed this time.

He cracked the same joke again and very few laughed this time.

When there was no laughter in the crowd, he smiled and said,

"When you can't laugh on the same joke again and again then why do you keep crying over the same thing over and over again?"

The question made me think harder and harder; my answer is a matter of choice. You can choose to cry and make yourself miserable or laugh because you chose to be happy and not because whatever that is you were crying about "will pass" as well.

Perhaps because jokes are frivolous while things that would make us cry are things that really matter to us.

It's all in the outlook/attitude. Those who don't stop crying over and over again about the same thing have not moved on. They focus on the loss. Generally, they are pessimists. It's not easy for them to forgive. They hold on to their emotions too much because they are generally ruled by emotions. They do not trust God enough because if they did they will know that everything works together for good to those who love God and keep His commandments. It's actually a choice.
