Exploring Happiness #32- Murphy's Law - Poem by June Stepansky

Even in the best of lives
there will be times,
now and again, when
“everything that
can go wrong

Such troublesome times
must be endured
with dignity, with courage,
and with the understanding that
(as Scarlet, so aptly
and so hopefully declared) ,
“Tomorrow is another day.”

Poet's Notes about The Poem

If our lives, at present, are productive and pleasant, it is unrealistic to think that they will always remain that way and that we will never ran into difficulties.
Although Murphy’s Law may sound cynical, it is actually a very hopeful philosophy which subtly urges us to be prepared and to protect ourselves as much as possible(both financially and emotionally) for whatever difficult times might be ahead for us.
Understanding and accepting the unpredictability of living gives us the added strength we may need to cope with those unexpected events which might occur in the future.
