Is Life Ever Just Right?

Is Life Ever Just Right?

People complain about everything. Nothing is ever right. It seems there’s always too much or too little.

Take farmers for instance. A recent TV news item reported that local farmers are concerned about the current early spring conditions in Ontario (we’re experiencing temperatures that we don’t normally get for another month) and the fact that a frost could severely affect the harvest this year causing food prices to soar.

With all due respect, farmers, we constantly hear it’s either too hot or too cold; too wet or too dry; too sunny or too cloudy; too early or too late. Are conditions ever right for you?

But farmers aren’t the only ones. We all grumble about our life. We’re too young or too old; we have kids or we don’t; we don’t have time or we have too much; we don’t have the money or… hey, I’ve never heard anyone complain that they have too much money!

Seriously, can’t we ever accept whatever “IS”? Life is so short and complaining about something, especially when we can’t do anything about it, is such a waste of time.

I have a little more to say on this subject in an article titled Present Perfect.
