It turns out I things don’t always work out the way we would like them to. Sometimes despite our best intentions, bad or weird things happen. Just look at this week in the news, ugh. I met one of these”things don’t always work out” moments today. Man have I tried to make this particular situation work with love, sweat and tears. My vision was so clear, and yet, not this time.
Well that stinks you are probably thinking, yeah I think so too.
So…now what? Old dreams and visions float off into the distance. Sad, potato chips and macaroons have their moment. And then, it’s time to make the most of the situation. I’m not there yet, but I know what it looks like and I can do it. I figure that I am really lucky to have had some extraordinary moments. Some treasured times that are just mine that no one can take away. So I take a look at them, honor those moments, and put them away in my treasure box, for safe-keeping.
Sometimes things work out easily and that is wonderful. I would like an order of that please. But when they don’t it’s ok too. Not comfortable, but still alright.
There are many well worn sayings like, “pull yourself up by your boot straps”, or “make the most of the situation”, or “every little thing is going to be alright” and those are true. So…I’m going to tell myself every little thing is going to be alright and eventually, it will be.
