An old man was sitting on his front porch. He was watching a young man with a severe limp, selling magazines door to door. When the young man finally got to his house the old man bought some magazines and struck up a conversation with the young man.
He ask him how he got his limp and the young man said he was born with this handicap. I guess life has been tough for you, having been born with this handicap and then having to earn a living by walking and selling magazine subscriptions door to door. Yes it has, said the young man. The old man said, I guess that has colored you view of the world.
Yes, replied the young man, but the good thing is I get to choose the color.
Whatever life has dealt us — the good news is that we get to choose how we view it. We get to choose the color.
