Since I began writing my blogs, I have always ended with “Keep moving forward” I truly mean that. But it doesn’t mean we won’t fall down at times along the way. Occasionally it will come out of nowhere and you find yourself in a deep dark hole wishing you could run away or not wake up for week. You ask yourself, “Where did this come from?” How many of us have been there?
Just about anything can put you there. A song, a special day coming up, the anniversary of the break-up, I could go on and on. But you know what it is and I know what it was for me this week. I felt like I did 11 months ago. I just wanted to escape and run. I don’t want to think about any of the past or him; so why did it creep back into my thoughts? I know what happened a year ago. The thought of it makes my stomach turn. So I slowly get out of the “feeling sorry for me” pit and let the anger take over. Anger can take you to a level you can function on and in. But you don’t want to stay there for very long. Look at where you are now; to see how far you have come. Be mad at what happened to you and know you are in a better place and move on. This is where we pick ourselves up and hold our head high and keep on moving toward being happy. Life is too short to be anything but.
I leave you with words from a song I grew up with:
“Where troubles melt like lemon drops, high above the chimney tops, that’s where you’ll find me… Somewhere over the rainbow…”
As always, Smile and keep moving forward, there is a life to live!!
