Today was one of the roughest days I’ve had in a long while.*sigh*
It started early this morning and just when I thought everything was over, something else would happen. Do you believe in the domino effect? I experienced it first hand today. After speaking with my Dad, he made the statement “Well you know what they say… when it rains…”
I finished with “it thunderstorms”. I meant to say “it monsoons”…
Though I wore a smile all day long, and though I was placed in situations that were not ideal, and though I had to make decisions on spot and hear not so hot news, I stayed strong. My smile didn’t waver. I stayed strong in the face of adversity…
That is, until I got home. Just like that, I broke. I broke because … well… I don’t know exactly. Could it have been that I had kept it all inside? Could it have been that the last words I uttered was the straw that broke the camel’s back? Whatever the reason, warm tears fell on my cold cheeks. The more I tried to stop them, the more they kept coming, so I just let them flow. The comforting arms and words of my husband brought everything back into perspective and I found peace. I reclaimed the day and was more motivated than ever to make things happen. That stuff that happened earlier? Done and done. I still have more life to live, y’all! Can’t dwell on the past or I’ll spoil my present.
To pamper myself, I indulged in a fashion magazine, ate some homemade pizza, and cozied on the couch with my favorite pups and boy 🙂 Ahhhh, I feel so much better!
A setback is just a set-up for something great! Thank you, Lord, for never leaving my side. If He can take care of the birds I know He can take care of me. Excuse me while I prepare for my comeback…
*in my ratchetess voice* I ain’t got no worries!
Whether it be a few years back, yesterday or even just a couple hours ago, just remember: the past has no power over me!
