Two Sides

If you always remember to bring an umbrella, you’ll never get caught in the rain… you’ll never have a stranger share his umbrella with you… But then again, there’s always a chance you’ll end up alone, cold and soaked through.

If you always order the same meal at the restaurant, you’ll always know you’ll be happy with what you get… but you’ll never get to taste something new.

Sometimes I actually like when Tim Horton’s screws up my order because I end up trying something new that I would’ve never tried on my own. Sometimes, though, I was really hankering for whatever it was I ordered and I get it corrected.

Bottom line is, there are two sides to everything that happens… every choice you could make… every road you could take. It depends on your outlook, the situation, even your mood… So the next time something doesn’t go your way, consider the alternative. It might make you look at things differently.
