Just Look At The Bright Side

TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If your computer crashes or your dog pees in the house, just look at the bright side.

Chicken Soup For The Soul: Count Your Blessings, is a new board game and book that urges folks to find the good in the bad.

Creator Laura Robinson – the brain behind Balderdash – thinks a silver lining can be found in all of life’s challenges.

Her son, for example, hates eating vegetables, so he puts whipped cream on his greens and voila – the glass is half- full again.

Her game highlights blessings in disguise that’ll make Debbie Downers appreciate what they have.

If their computer crashes at least it wasn’t their car, and if they’re stuck in line at the grocery store at least they get to thumb through gossip magazines.

Though the game is meant to adjust one’s attitude toward gratitude, it’s still fun.

The silver lining: Players get to share embarrassing moments and make up their own silly answers.
