Monday Musings…

“Things turn out best for people who
make the best of the way things turned out.”
John Wooden

There is no such thing as a perfect life. Everything doesn’t happen the way we want and we don’t get everything we want. Yet, we can have a good life and a happy one in spite of the little things that aren’t to our liking and bother us. Even the big ugly stuff that can stop us in our tracks and make us miserable can’t keep us down if we don’t let it.

Sometimes we just have to suck it up, put our big kid panties on, thumb our noses, and carry on with life the best we can. Other than the fact that one day we all die, there are no guarantees in life. So we might as well do what we can, make peace with what we can’t and get on with living.

All that being said…
I don’t think life is easy. Life is often painful and challenging. Those are just some of the wrappings to be torn away. So tear away where and when you must. Just be careful not to damage the beautiful gift of life you have been given.

  1. You’ve hit another homer. You’re the Mickey Mantle of the blog world in my opinion. Making the best of things…my late friend Jackie would call it, making lemonade out of lemons. When I go to bed at night, before falling asleep, I do a mental gratitude list hoping to outweigh the things that may be going wrong. An art…a honed skill, and like Abe Lincoln said, most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be. There’s truly something to that.

    Love how you write…:)

  2. Good reminder, life is precious despite all the painful distractions. I recently lost a family member, and that point was really driven home, life is precious – appreciate it while its here.

  3. I so agree that life can be difficult, but it’s how you deal with the difficulties. Excellent post.
