Volcano’s – Do your tragedies have a funny side?


It’s all over the news (mainly in the UK) the effects of this Icelandic Volcano. Some see it as a tragedy.. but some see it as an opportunity to see a lighter side of life and find an opportunity to smile and laugh.

I don’t know about you but my life seems to be littered each week with things that appear to be tragedies on the surface.. Like some Volcano stuffing up my flights to Tenerife.. for a bit of sun on my shiny old head.. And guess what I got sunburn at West Park instead. (What am I focusing on?)

But can a fresh look, an alternative perspective see a much lighter side.. even a happier side to dealing with seeming tragedies and problems?


I’m going to take this task on myself this week to have a fresh look at any tragedies and problems that arise in my life and look for the lighter side rather than focusing on the black smoldering clouds. Why not extend my skill levels beyond that of moaning, and whinging.

“Whatever you focus on.. you get more of.”

They say a smile and laughing can cure most ill’s, so why not put it to the test. Why not focus on the lighter side more often than not and see what you draw to yourself.. What do you want more of?… Mind-numbing problems and fear.. or.. Clarity, Growth and Laughter?

That Scottish guy in the background is so amusing.. I just love it.
