Those of you who read ThingsThatWeDo.com must get the sense that I’m a relatively positive person. I’m generally cheery and I generally smile, but I have to tell you, today was NOT a good day. You ever get the feeling that something is just not right about the day, when everyone around you has ‘stuff’ going on ON TOP of everything else that happens to you on that VERY SAME DAY?!
Yep, that was my day.
We’re talking computer issues (A LOT of them), people issues (not me directly, but affect me nonetheless), family issues (my kid, school, don’t worry, she’s fine, but STILL), friends have issues, people I know have issues, and seriously…it all came pouring out from everyone TODAY.
So, just how am I supposed to make this day a positive one? Where is that silver lining that I’m trying so hard to find?
Well…let me think about it.
At least, the family is healthy and things weren’t as bad as they could have been. My computer did at least turn on and I could work although at turtle’s pace since most of the time the internet was cutting out, email wasn’t working and I couldn’t always access my files. I also need a new keyboard because it stopped working today, all by itself. At least, I didn’t break it. It was working just fine yesterday.
At least, there are feasible solutions for most of the stuff that happened today. People are on the mend, despite everything that has happened.
I guess today is really a day about appreciating what you do have and what could have happened but didn’t. Today is one of those days where I have to be humble and believe that this kind of ‘stuff’ happens so that we can learn and grow from them, to learn how to take action when action is needed, and when to laugh even when you can’t.
Boy, I am being really cryptic in today’s post but that’s just been the kind of day that I’m having. I could give you all the details but if I did, I’d have to rehash it all and well, that would be like repeating today all over again and that is the last thing I want to do.
Over and upwards, tomorrow, here I come!
That sounds positive enough, right?
