Always look on the bright side of life. You'll live longer and happier.

'Prof Bruce Hood is chair of developmental psychology in society at the University of Bristol......... said...... "I think that one causal mechanism could be that optimists cope better with stress, and this could be by avoiding rumination about negative life events.'

It's a proven fact that, if we concentrate on our pain we feel it more. So, in the words of the song:

'If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten'

:D:D:D
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    As my dad used to say (who had OA in both his knees) it's not that it doesn't hurt I just don't let it matter. Think he was ahead of his time with mindfulness. :D
