My daughter-in-law, Tammi, sent me this:
"Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back. Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance."
I LOVE those words!
Today I begin a whole new round of applying for jobs and wondering where I will be living in the next six months. For the first time in over eight years find myself unemployed.
I could freak out about that. I could focus on the loss of income, the loss of a lot of things. I have teetered a bit close to edge of melt-down angst over this from time to time.
But, gratefully, so far I keep pulling myself back in the nick of time.
I will NOT fall into the trap of "poor me" or blubbering about woulda-shoulda-coulda.
I will embrace new opportunities.
I will cherish time to explore new things.
I will dance.
Come on world, give me your best shot. I'm ready for ya!
