There are days when just about everything seems to be going well. Smooth sailing. Upon deeper reflection, however, we will always find a bump. The thought that there is always something wrong does not seem depressing to me, but simply realistic. We can be sure that, in this life, we will consistently face troubles and difficulties. The good news is that there will also be much happiness and blessing to savor. The following quote, I think, gives very practical advice when it comes to finding balance in the ups and downs of life.
"Make the most of the best and the least of the worst." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
