If You Were Going Crazy?
Posted by happypizza on May 29, 2007
Someone once asked, “What would you do if you thought you were going crazy?”
The reply came, “I’d go out and find someone less fortunate to serve!” Life just seems to make a lot more sense when you’re helping someone who has more problems than you do. And it’s somehow reassuring to be the one helping another person up rather than being helped up yourself. For instance, when you pass a man sitting on the sidewalk who has no legs and you put a dollar in his cup and take a pencil, you walk away thinking, “My life’s not so bad after all!”
(Excerpts from “Making Things Right”—By Paul Faulkner)
What would you do if you knew you were losing your mind?
One ship sails east and another west
While the selfsame breezes blow
‘Tis the set of the sail and not the gale
That bids them where to go.
As the winds of the air are the ways of fate
As we voyage along through life,
‘Tis the set of the soul that decides our goal
And not the storm and the strife
–By Ella Wheeler Wilcox
