I’ve noticed something over the past 10 days that I wanted to share. It is a observation that can change a life!!!! And I need to apply it to my life again immediately!

Several things have occurred in my life over the past days that have been unexpected, devastating and even heartbreaking. It makes me sad. The fact that the happenings occurred almost simultaneously catapulted me to feeling of defeat and even fear. My introverted personality wants to find a safe place to sit safely to protect myself.

Here’s what I’ve noticed as I have shut down– when I spend my days in gloom I don’t notice the beautiful. Previously every single day I would engage, observe, interact and enjoy in life’s majestic moments!! And I ALWAYS had something else I wanted to share on my BLOG!! Those daily joys have not been true lately!!

My big lesson is that I have to put on my HAPPY so I can go through the motions of re-engaging in my life. Over time I will get back to my chipper being and be able to see the magic occurring in front of my eyes every single day, every where I go!!

  1. Life’s challenges can be difficult but as long as one stays positive and follow ones heart and dreams, better days will lie ahead… how you deal with challenges today, will help define what you will be tomorrow… 🙂

    “Bad things do happen, how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have– life itself. “ Walter Anderson

  2. I’m sorry it’s been such a hard few days, and we all have times where we get lost in the dark. Luckily I have a knitted donkey to help pull me out of these days, but there are always things that can help. Like watching baby donkey videos! 🙂 I hope you have an easier time ahead and Dizzy sends lots of hugs. 🙂 And if it’s any help, Dizzy did a little post on quotes for the darker days, they help us, so hopefully they will for you too. 🙂 xxx

    Heather—I never thought of watching BABY DONKEY VIDEOS!! I’m all into that suggestion.
    I love ❤️ it!
    I 💕 love it!!
    I 💗 ❤️ 💕 it!!!

    Dizzy—THANK YOU for the post on quotes!! You are very in tune to the feelings of others.
    I will let those words pour over me today. 😊

  3. I am sorry you have had a few bad days. Sadly life always comes with many challenges and it can be hard to see the good during those times. I do believe that holding on too long to the negative will only bring you down even further. Sometimes, taking a few moments at the end of a day, even the bad ones to remember the best day of your life can really change your thoughts to a more positive. While living with a chronic illness isn’t any fun at all, there is always a bright light at the end of any and every tunnel! I am here for you sweetie! Sending you love and hugs!

    Thank You for your kindness Alyssa! You really are such a sweet soul. I put some ☀️ in my pocket a few weeks ago—I’ll use that until I can find the 🌞 and my 😊!! And your right it’s time to get on with it!!!

  4. Life is such a kick in the pants sometimes and these past few weeks have been tough, notwithstanding your good report from the surgeon last Wednesday. Give yourself some more time … hopefully the after effects from the surgical procedure have lessened and you are healing up and back on the road to recovery in that respect as well.

    I’m still standing — not necessarily better than I’ve ever been but I’m here.

    I saw a homeless lady yesterday sitting outside with her Wal-Mart cart 🛒 filled with all of her worldly possessions right next to her. She was sitting on a street drain starring up into the sky. I thought she is in the same predicament but I have a 🏠, a family that supports me, 🐶’s to remind me to be happy 😊 when I’m not, food🥗🍦🍝 only steps away and a 🚗 car to whisk me away to dreamy places.

    She put it into perspective for me!!!
    She is still standing too—probably not better than she has ever been but she’s still there.

  5. Look at you go! Still seeking beauty and happiness even though you are exhausted. When life seems to be taking a huge dump on me I am comforted by the thought of my dog, Valencia Merble. She is the happiest creature I know (as evidenced by big dog smiles and kisses) and even she isn’t happy all the time. It really resonates with me. Thank you for having the courage to open up about what you are going through. (You can’t see, but I’m doing a Muscovy Duck butt wiggle of support).

    he sun will shine again!

    Luckily I put some sunshine ☀️ in my pocket for this exact scenario.

    Thank You for your words—reminded me of something my dear Grandma would have said to me.

    I’m on it (finding the 🌞 and my 😊 )
