How to Make the Most of a Bad Situation…

Listen now | But it doesn’t mean settling for less. I’m sitting here in the dark with the hum of a generator rumbling outside. We lost our power and internet a couple of days ago, and it looks like we won’t have it back for 5-7 more days. But, we’re doing our best to make the most of a bad situation. It’s cold and dark, but we’re able to keep a fire going, and we stocked up on food before the storm hit. We light candles at night and read paper books. Complaining about the snow and power outage accomplishes nothing. Anger won’t melt the snowdrifts on the road. Frustration won’t force PG&E to work faster to restore our power. It is what it is, so we have no choice but to make the best of it. Life isn't always about being happy. But, when you have a larger purpose and strive to live a life of meaning, it carries you through challenging times. So, would you rather have a happy life or a meaningful one? I explore that question in this week's newsletter and podcast episode.
