Which World Do YOU Live In?


The world around you is a reflection of your reaction to the world around you.

I want to live in the pretty one, but I feel like I live in the icky one. :( But I want to see waterfalls and stuff!

LOL, Krissy! Did you see what John wrote on Facebook under this post? He was talking about living in Spanish Harlem.

Krissy said...

Ha! I hadn't seen it, but my life is a breeze compared to that, I'm sure!

No, he was actually a saying the surroundings were a dump, but the people were so colorful that he loved living there. I know he once worked long ago as a kind of "all purpose errand guy" for a wealthy family, so it had to be a trip working all day on Park Avenue in that splendor and then coming home to a dump. BUT, he loved the people in Spanish Harlem way more than his employers. So I guess the moral of the story is, there is beauty even in plain or ugly surroundings if you know how to look for it. :)
