On Problems

I woke up last Tuesday feeling down and tired. I felt that I was carrying the problems of the world. But I had no choice, I still went to class with full mastery and understanding of nothing. My head was empty as a coconut.

Alas it's time for class, but the good dean did not conduct his regular stomach churning recitations. Instead, he gave us a lesson on life. He advised us not to worry our life away. But what I loved the most on what he shared to us was his philosophy.
 "There are really no problems - only decisions to be made."
Since that Tuesday night, my understanding of problems has changed. I am no longer afraid of problems.

"When God closes a door, He opens a window. Did you notice that He solves the same problems he gives? You just have to return the problem to the person who gave it to you. Sometimes, you just got to have faith."
"There are really no problems in life, only decisions to be made."
I like it. I guess what brings light to a dark damp and clouded mind is worth repeating.

@gillboard, me too, optimists create - pessimists don't produce anything.
