Cheryl and I saw this Shreddies billboard while driving around Windsor, Ontario earlier today. I just had stop and take a picture, not only because the sign is funny, but also because it teaches a great lesson about coping with life and its challenges. Oftentimes, the real problem in our lives is the negative ways in which we're looking at things. As I wrote in an essay titled "This Joy I Have,"

Problems tend not to be as problematic as the ways in which humans attempt to solve them. Indeed, the greatest and most overlooked problem often is the person with problems -- the way he thinks about and responds to what he perceives to be problematic people, places, things, or situations in his life. Consequently, the "something new" we often feel we need is really new ways of thinking that can engender better ways of living, relating to others, and coping with challenges.

Hi Babe, I agree this billboard is funny and also a good life lesson. Everything depends on how you look at it. Sometimes the slightest adjustments can make all the difference in the world.

Excellent observation. I so agree that life is a matter of perception. I thank you for your efforts with Alopecia world, and helping people to feel good about themselves. I sent the link to a friend and her first words were, wow, this site just gives me a good feeling. I wish I could have had this tool to help me when I was young. Now, I hope to make that memorable nightmare a positive experience by helping others realize their beauty. I'm very blessed to have a very loving and supportive husband, as your Cheryl has. Men like him and you are very rare, and most precious. Thank you
