Nobody ever said life was going to be fair...boy ain't that the truth!
I've never wanted riches, just to be happy.
Happiness these days changes from day-to-day.
Last week, happiness was as simple as having a job I love, working with the best bunch of people I've ever had the pleasure to meet, love of family: happy, healthy, and safe, food on the table and a roof above us.
Today it's something else...simply trying to breath.
They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger...well then...today I should have the strength of Hercules, the wisdom of the Goddess Athena, and the patience of Job.
Oh, I'll survive it, I'll come out on top, and I'll go on. Why? Because I said so...gads...shades of my mother just slipped out of my mouth. ;-) But in this case it's true. Is it easy? No way.
A friend said, "Realize it's out of your hands."
No greater words have been spoken and it's true, thank you my friend for your wisdom and strength.
In the meantime, I go on...one breath at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time.
Having a tough day...this too shall pass.
May we all find our own happiness, treasure it while we can, and appreciate it for as long as we have it.
Find your inner strength and don't be afraid to use it.
