Today has been a weird day . . nothing major but just some craziness that we don’t usually have to deal with. Several times today I’ve had to sit myself down, and have a heart to heart with myself and more than once a few tears fell. Again . . not any one issue but enough small ones to get the best of me – only because I let it!
The sunset was gorgeous. I sat in my chair and looked out the window for a while before I walked out and took some pictures. Most days I don’t even notice it but on the days I’m trying to get a picture of a sunrise or a sunset, I’m so surprised at how quickly it changes and in a very few minutes, a beautiful sunrise has turned into complete daylight and a gorgeous sunset has turned into total darkness.
That got me to thinking . . little things that pop up in our lives . . those unexpected little blips that try to throw you off course . . we really sometimes have just a few minutes or less to decide, often subconsciously, how it’s going to affect us. We can find something positive or think of a positive solution and still have a great day or we can dwell on the negative, start thinking “poor, pitiful me” and before long, it’s ruined our day.
Today, I about let some happenings ruin my day and then I decided that we’re facing some new adventures . . maybe adventures that weren’t exactly what we had planned but there’s a lot more good than bad and I had been concentrating on the bad.
Tears are gone. I’m excited to see what tomorrow holds! Whatever comes tomorrow and the next day and the next . . I hope I’ll do better than dealing with it than I did today!
