Life Has A Way…

Of setting us straight when we wander off track. Every thought we have leads us to our next choice. Every choice we make, leads us to our next destination. You can choose to make it your best day, or you can wallow into what happened yesterday and never get anywhere.

Life isn’t always fair, and we don’t always get what we want, but it is in those moments when things don’t seem to make sense that you find the real value of living your life to the fullest.

We have a tendency to whine about things and to only look at the bad, look at our media after all. There is no news to broadcast if folks are loving and caring for one another. NO, they would rather sensationalize the ugly things that happen instead of focusing on the many wonderful things that went on behind those ugly facts.

For us, we strive to see all the good in every moment.

When we hear yet another child screaming because they are not getting what they want, we are grateful that we have not lost our hearing.

When our bones ache and we feel sore all over, we are grateful that we have healthy enough bodies to allow us to be working today.

When we look out into the pumpkin patch and see people lifting and dropping the pumpkins, at least we know we have sight today, the legs to get up and walk over to them and the voice to ask them to stop.

Yes, we are still grieving over the loss of two wonderful people, but for us the best way through our pain is to see and live the bright side and not dwell on all the could of or should of’s. That is one of the reasons we chose to begin living our dream life, so we don’t have any regrets of not living each moment to the fullest.

Your words speak for many of the thoughts I have been having the last couple of days.

Trying hard not to worry about where the next job is, where the money is to pay a few bills but to be thankful in where I am, what I am doing and who I am doing it with.

Have a truly blessed rest of week.
