There was a Chinese man who owned a horse.

One morning the Chinese man woke up to see his horse had disappeared without trace.

The townsfolk came to the mans house and said “Oh no, that’s very unlucky”

To which the Chinese man replied “Maybe?”

The next day the Chinese man woke to find his horse back in the paddock along with 7 more wild horses it must have bought back with it.

The townsfolk came to the mans house and said “Oh WOW, that’s so lucky”

To which the Chinese man replied “Maybe?”

The next morning the Chinese man looked out his window and seen his son riding one of the wild horses. Moments later his son had fallen off the back of the horse and broke his leg.

The townsfolk came to the mans house and said “Oh no, that’s very unlucky”

To which the Chinese man replied “Maybe?”

The next day the army recruiters rode into town to enlist all the young men and prepare them for war.

They noticed that the Chinese mans son had a broken leg and was not fit for service.

The townsfolk came to the mans house and said “Oh WOW that’s so lucky”

To which the Chinese man replied “Maybe?”

The moral of this story is this…

Lucky or unlucky. How you perceive the situation or circumstance is purely based on the lenses in which you are viewing from.

Was the son unlucky to break his leg? Maybe.. And was the son lucky to not be enlisted to go off to war and possibly never come back? Maybe..

Can you relate?

I bet you can.

I certainly can. The death of my dear friend to breast cancer was one of the saddest things I have ever witnessed, yet on the other side of that, TODAY! I can say she is the fire behind what I do.

My brand new book would not be published, I would not be out there spreading awareness and this message if she did not pass.

Remember, the glass is half empty, and half full. How you decide to perceive it, is entirely up to you.
