Weeks are blowing by like days, months like weeks, and years… well, I think you get the picture.
Ironically, I remember blogging about this exact phenomenon in one of my first blogs…BUT I remember then of being in/of the mindset of wasting my life away… trapped in a life that didn’t have a plan… or even a light at the end of the tunnel. I was turning into that old crabby guy, looking for all that was wrong… YIKES!!!
“Emerson loved the good, and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony. Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and inharmony.” I choose to love the good and let the bad atrophy.
As my vehicle started decreasing speed and my check engine light started flashing at me on the highway in the middle of the bridge in Burlington, VT, an hour away from home at 11:30 in the middle of the night, I found myself smiling and starting to laugh. Whaaaaaat? What’s so awesome about me now that a situation like this, that I probably would have punched a window out in the past, brings a smile and laughs from me now??? While I cannot control WHAT happens to me… I can control HOW I respond!!!
I was also coming from an amazing weekend with my family. We all met in NH for our annual Deli-night and this year brought about an amazing little… naaaaw….gonna call it an amazing huge miracle… my father was able to relive a little bit of his past history, performing on stage in front of his whole family!!! I’m posting here to 1) share it with you and 2) have it always available to me to watch.
I am so grateful for my new life and for being able to learn how to make myself happy.
