When Life Gets You Down

When life gets you down… How many times a day, a week, or a month do you get to feeling down on life? For me, I always try to find a positive in every situation and look at those moments as challenges or obstacles to pick my self up by my boot straps and go at it again. But sometimes something occurs that leaves what I like to call a scar.

Occasionally something that I have been working for or towards my whole life shatters into a million pieces and falls deep into the hole of no return. It’s at these moments that I find myself letting life get me down. Recently, I went through one of these moments and I am still working on picking myself back up. I have a friend that always says,

Tell God your plans and he will laugh in your face.

My current obstacle isn’t life threatening or the worst thing that could happen so its time to start back over at square one.

With current illnesses and issues taking place in some dear family and friends I am reminded just how precious life is. In an effort to help out some of these individuals I began a small fundraising campaign to generate a little token of faith and strength. To my amazement my little “idea” grew with the love and support of great people. I am still shell shocked at the gratitude people have for someone in a time of crisis. In a world where negativity and wrongdoings seem to make the headlines while honesty and good deeds are thrown under the carpet for lack of reader appeal there still shines a light at the end of the tunnel.

So I guess for me it’s time to get back to the drawing board and start at square one.

    Ok Farmgirl……how does one determine that they have too any “scars” and at that point what is the next step to finding those bootstraps?

    Missmuffet…. who’s older than dirt is inquiring?

    How’s homeownership so far? Could/or Would you use some Tulip or Daffodil bulbs to plant for next spring? For me….that can be a possibility for “healing” those scars. Bailey, Justin and myself have been trimming bushes, pulling up flowers I longer want and replacing solar lights the last couple of days….this type of task can be pretty good medicine too!

    ………later……………….miss muffet
