“How is life?” is a question I’m often asked. Since I live in ‘the now’, I refuse to worry about the future or dwell on the past.
The question seems to come from people who do not understand the concept of living in ‘the now’. Many of them truly believe I own a cash cow. “How do you do it?”, they ask. “Even in the worst of situations, you remain calm and you always wear a happy mask.”
I’ve heard this question so much that I have perfected my answer. It’s clear, concise and direct. “It could be better or it could be worse. But right now, it’s perfect.”
In this world filled with sadness and pain, I’m blessed to be alive, employed and healthy. I’m surrounded by my children whom I love and respect. So yes, my life could be better or it could be worse. But right now, it’s perfect.
