So I haven’t been the best at blogging, and I need to get better because it makes me feel better to document my life a little bit. Heck I don’t scrapbook so this really is the journal of my life. Anyways I found a pretty neat blog challenge to get me back into it.
Day 1 is: Write about one of the best lessons life has shown you.
The best and #1 lesson I’ve learned from life is that time will pass, troubles will too, and it’s best not to let your troubles get the best of you!
I’ve had a pretty hard couple of months with a lot going on. At times I felt like the earth was going to just stop spinning from all the pressure I felt to “fix” things. I had family issues, scary work transitions, and sadly, I had a couple friends decide that what I was offering in friendship was no longer enough. These problems hit me all at once, each with no consideration of the other problems. Finally, after suffering for far too long, I had one of those really good breakthrough talks with my husband about all the bad that was going on in my life and he helped me to see that all of this was out of my control. I can’t control what happens in my family, but I can love them through anything, and I can’t control the changes at work, but I can control my attitude towards them. I think the friend problem was the toughest for me, overall, because I was made to feel like I was not enough by people I never thought in a million years I’d lose. That’s life, I guess; and if it’s taught me anything, it’s that there is no need to worry myself to near death trying to “fix” everything or figure out the why of what’s happening, because most problems will work themselves out, or it’s not really that important of an issue that it needs to affect my life that adversely. In the end it’s better to focus on the good, rather than dwell on what could go wrong, or who does or doesn’t like you anymore; because when you stop to think about it, this life is amazing, it’s a gift, and when it’s nearing the end of my life I want to remember what I loved, not what I feared.
