Life Gets in the Way

There are times when life takes off, drags you kicking and screaming... leaving little time for things like blogging.

School ended.  

I didn't get the dream job.

Summer job as an administrative director for a bible school began.

Grandma's not doing so hot.

Oral surgery tomorrow.

It's amazing how quickly things go.  And how quickly I can forget to take care of myself.  The weight that was so painstakingly lost, is going back on.  I'm tired (who isn't).  I feel as though a day of 'me' would be amazing, but isn't in the cards.  But that's okay.

Because it's better to be busy, and doing things, than doing nothing at all.  Yes there are negatives.  There will always be speed bumps, thorns, storms... whatever you chose to call them.  They will always be there.

I'm telling myself that each of these present a unique opportunity.  I will sit on the pity pot only for a moment.  I will wallow only briefly.  And then I will get up.  Shake it off.  And make it better.  And if I can't make it better, I will try like crazy to find something to replace it.  To take away the sting.  (As long as it's not Red Velvet Cake.)

So today I remind myself:

Remember to live the best you can.  Love the most you can.  Tell the people that you love, you love them.  Take a break and soak up the sun.  
 Moments are precious, many things can wait... The Sunset Won't.
