It will be ok

I have a list of very happy uplifting posts in my head just waiting to be typed out for your reading enjoyment. But, today I logged in and read Beauty Sale Shopper 's latest blog....here, and it made me a little sad. I believe that everything makes you who you are today...and unfortunately that means tragedy too. We have all had them though we seldom talk about that. They change the way we think, act and sometimes even view the world. It could change things in a good way or a negative way. The same tragedy can effect two people two completely different ways. My point, it is how you choose to deal with a tragedy that makes you who you are. I'm not trying to say that you can make a positive out of everything, I know sometimes that just isn't possible. But it doesn't have to end your world. You can grieve (and this is a VERY important process), and then go from there. No one will ever ask you to forget, but to remember, memorialize...to honor! I get tears in my eyes...I haven't lost many people in my life but the few I have...have been precious beyond words. Loss is a part of life, it helps you appreciate what you have while God lets you.

The second part of Beauty Sale Shopper's post is about if we are truly happy, could be more happy or love more. You are in control of your own destiny. If you are not happy, do something to change that. Go out, do new adventures, make new friends....live a little! I use to just go to work and stay home with the hubby and kids every weekend....and I was happy. But now I have something going on with either family or friends every weekend. Even though sometimes I want to pull my hair out because we are so busy...I'm happier. It is nice to know that family and friends like to see me and my family so much.

Even though this post started out kind of sad....there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
