I'm not exactly fond of those motivational posters that you see in high schools hallways. I usually find them to be overly simplistic, unrealistic things that require no effort and only result in snarky villains like myself making fun of them.
There are some quotes from exceptional people however that truly do lift my shriveled Grinchy heart. One of my favorites comes from one of the greatest shows ever, of all time, Firefly.
"A problem is only an opportunity in disguise." I'm going to try and apply this to my life more often. I think more good will come of that than biting my lip in frustration.
