Back to writing…

Yep.  It’s been long enough.  So, here I am.

Thought for today:

Sometimes things happen or people do things just because.  Because it is who they are, because they don’t think about how we might take it, because they just do.  You know what I mean, right?  The comment, the look, the interruption, or the coffee that spills…

Why do we assume that the thing was done TO us?  To hurt us?  To shame us?  To smart-ass us?  We tend to assume that the universe has targeted us directly with these things.  We take on ownership and responsibility for them.  We give them a life on their own.

I’ve got news for you:  The universe doesn’t care much about us.  Other people tend not to care much either.   Things happen.

If we can smile, acknowledge the action, and then move on – our lives are simpler, easier, and much less stressful.

I think that the real test in life is in how we react those things we cannot control…
