Ah, the obligatory happy post after a sad post...a trend I tend to follow in real life. "Oh yeah, guys...yesterday was a bad day. Man, I was bummed. But today is great! I promise."
Well, actually, today is a lot better. Because out of moments of great sorrow come epiphanies, action and resolution. We can't be happy all the time; but more importantly, we can't be sad all the time. So, in a weird way, I kind of like sadness for how it pushes me to do something.
Of course, sadness doesn't just float away in the middle of the night. That bastard tends to hang around as long as he possibly can (yep, I personified sadness as a boy!). So, I'm dealing with some things...aren't we all? But also, I'm making a few changes here and there. I've always been a fix-it kind of gal. Why mope around when instead I can work on changing my disposition?
By the way, I love that a lot of the solutions provided by you, fine readers, involved road trips and international travel. Well heck, you've found the way to my heart. But know who you're talking to! I'll take you up on all those offers!
And yes, I've been talking to people around me. And yes, I've been praying. Thanks for all your wise words. I love getting advice from the blog community!
