It Is All In How You Handle Things

My life is going through a lot of transition lately. Moving. Applying for part-time jobs. Dating. Changing kinds and dosages of medications. Like I said – a lot of transition. But what you need to know is that sometimes life is like that. Sometimes life is in upheaval even. Things happen all at once, coincidence or not. Sometimes you are living paycheck to paycheck. Sometimes you’re laptop dies and the you have to send the new one back because you don’t like it and then you are stuck WITHOUT a computer and you are a blogger (oops. a bit personal there).

You get sick, and I don’t mean mentally. The flu. Pneumonia. A broken leg. Etc. Etc.

Don’t let life get you down when the going gets tough. Smile. Make a new friend. Take yourself (or your dog) for a walk.

You need to be flexible. You need to know that things change. Perhaps where you are isn’t where you want to be. Perhaps your star seems far, far away. That is okay. You can still see it on clear nights and know that one day you will get there.
