Sunshine, roses, bright fields of flowers, and rainbows. It would be great if life was comprised out of good things all the time – but it isn’t. Flowers die and storm clouds roll in to cover up the sun. You can get soaked in the rain, and you could even burn your food (there is nothing quite like burnt food when you’re hungry…..).
Life is made out of everyday moments. The good ones and the bad ones and when the day is going south, it can be a real struggle to bring it back up. Fake it till you make it! It’s a bad day, not a bad life. Chin up buttercup. I’m sure we can drum up a few more sayings about finding the road back to happiness. These phrases may be cliché, but that doesn’t mean they are not worth a bit of attention. Ninety percent of the time I tend to be an optimist, the other 10% I’m a realist, and I’m going to find the good out of whatever situation I’m given – even if I have to use a cliché.
Sometimes that bit of happiness, the glimmer of hope in your otherwise humdrum day, is dancing around outside the edge of your fingertips and you have to chase it. Good things come to those who wait? Okay, sure. I’ll agree with that, but what I won’t do is wait forever and neither should you. What about the saying ‘work for what you want’? You can’t wait for something and work for it at the same time. Are you working on waiting?
The reason we wait is to make sure about the things that we want. Once you know what it is, it’s time to stop waiting. Stand up, get a good stretch, bounce on your feet – one, two, three, times – and go after what you want. Don’t be afraid of the chase.
