Tough week for many people I care about… and myself. To stay afloat, I constantly have to remind myself that good days don’t come easy. Life throws constant curve balls and all we can do is hit back what we can and laugh about what we can’t. And keep playing.
When things get tough, I pick out music that will help remind me not to let the outside turmoil inside me so I can try to keep smiling, even if there’s a hurricane blowing. I make that song my ringtone and listen to it every chance I get to bolster my spirits. This week I’m listening to American Author’s Best Day of My Life.
Life isn’t “what we make of it,” as the saying goes. I think that insinuates that we sit by passively, forcing a smile and some bland positive message while our inside world withers. I think life is what we make it.
When darkness encroaches, drive it back. Post your inner Gandalf at the bridge into your soul and have him stand vigilant, staff in hand, refusing passage to negativity. Crap happens, and always will happen. Just remember to keep the stink on the outside where you can wash it off, never inside where it festers.
And with that… I’ll share my favorite song of the week…
