My intent was to post everyday, then I realized that I don’t always have something of value to say everyday. This has been one of my most recent and hard to learn lessons… If you don’t have anything of substance to say, don’t say anything at all. If you can’t be kind, encouraging, informational or even just pleasant, please don’t speak. I am finding myself more frequently hurt by the things that people say to me. I am not sure if it is because I am more conscientous about my words or if it is because I have suddenly become a horrible person. Either way, I find myself often saying “wow”.
Something else I have pondered in my absent days on the blog is that there will always be “something”. Maybe it is financial, an illness, a relationship or even circumstantial… but usually there is always something. I would imagine if you stopped every person or stranger you saw and asked them what their “something” is, they would have an answer. I have decided that if someone says… “Everything is just great, absolutly fantastic.” Or even the simple, “good”; they aren’t necessairly lying, but what ever their “something” is, they certainly don’t want to share it with you. They want you to believe that all is well with the world. I am not stupid either… I understand that in some rare cases you will encounter people who’s stars have lined up and all is in sync in their universe. But I would scurry along, because those times don’t last long. Most certainly, they will be hit by an astroid or a spaceship that has fallen out of the sky.
I am feeling very simplistic today and I am lacking much depth… for these reasons; my feelings are hurt and I have “somethingS”. I told 15 people today that I was wonderful and in reality I am, because I have decided that my “somethings” are not going to control my thought life. I have decided that I am a good person, I love, I am worthy, and I am loved. For those things I am thankful.
On this jouney to be the best we can be some days are going to be difficult than others and our best today is our worst tomorrow or vice versa.
