The Long View

Having a tough time today? Ask yourself two questions.

  1. Is my life good?
  2. Am I on a trajectory for a good life?

Those questions aren’t about “the good life” or living large. They are a simple assessment of whether or not you are in a fortunate place.

What do you have? Enough to eat. Heat in the winter. Supportive friends. Loving family.

What else do you have? A smart phone. A flat screen TV (or more than one). A computer.

What else?

Chances are if you are reading this, you have a pretty good life and you are on a trajectory to continue to have a good life.

Don’t let temporary setbacks allow you to convince yourself otherwise.
