Today I wrapped up something I’ve been dealing with for about seven long draining months. There’s still work to do but it took so much time and effort to bring this phase to a head I’m just so very happy that part of the ordeal is over. I’ve come to realize that there’s always going to be something in life. If you’re kicking ass at work something will break in your house. If it’s not work or home you’ll roll out of bed one morning and not be able to move your head to one side for no reason at all other than life likes to play games. You know how when you buy something online there’s usually an option to have it shipped as a gift and include a gift message? Sometimes I’ll select that option when I’m buying something for myself and have the message say, “Everything is going to be all right.” I like that sentiment but sometimes it’s not going to be all right and there’s nothing you or anybody can do about it. It may just be an it’s over and I’ve moved on kind of situation. There may be times when all you can do is put one foot in front of the other and try to make the best of how things turned out. I know a gift message that says- Hey girl enjoy this because at least you didn’t die…yet doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as Everything is going to be all right. So, in order to strike a balance between being hopeful and the realities of life I think I’m going to have my messages to myself say, I know you’re doing your best and I hope this finds you well. I might also switch it up and throw in a Chin up buttercup message every now and then too. It’ll depend on my mood at checkout.
I hope this post finds you well. I know you’re doing the best you can.
