I ‘got my frump on’ real good last night, had a good cry and woke up feeling much better this morning. Nancy, I saw your comment this morning, and you are so right – the one thing we can count on in this life is change – and that’s about the only constant we’ve got! And Maggie, thanks for your comment, too. I know that I am making a difference, it just doesn’t feel like it, sometimes.
But that’s the reality of it, you know? When you look at any one particular event or situation in your life, you open yourself up to self-recrimination, feelings of ineffectiveness and frustration that when viewed from the big picture, aren’t really warranted. So, when life kicks you in the ass, you have to remember to get up, climb up to that big picture view and take a look around. You’re never going to see a perfect picture, but you’ll almost certainly see a better picture.
I don’t want to run away from home anymore. Life would just follow me, anyway, and there’s nowhere that I’m safe from a swift kick in the ass every now and then. That’s life. That’s reality.
