Always Look on the Bright Side of Life is a famous song for those who know the film Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979).
Always look on the bright side of life. (Whistle).
Always look on the light side of life. (Whistle)
Which is what we can train ourselves. And I show this in the drawing.
At first glance, an easy and bright yellow computer drawing. With two yellow strokes. One bright and strong. The right one is also yellow but paler. And more lived through or perhaps even run down. Yet in itself a good color too.
A female neutral-looking face. But if we look at the eyes. We see one eye wide open with curiosity, with a few black crowlike eyelashes left. The other eye on the right has the black mascara (or dirt) cried out.
The book: Families and how to survive them, was written by Dr. Robin Skynner John Cleese, who co-founded Monty Python, the comedy troupe responsible for the movie Life of Brian.
And although super funny. It is helpful and sound advice, in my opinion. To every coin, there is a flipside. Perhaps we can train ourselves to always look for the positive aspects of certain situations.
This drawing was made on the computer in 1996, and then printed and laminated in 1999.
