My friend the “Nocturnal Poet” that he is sent me a poem last night and it gave me a little chuckle. (See Below) But as a watcher and a thinker, it also made me think. So often in life we have activities or experience moments where we are left with the feeling that postage is due. I’m sure you know how it is, the experience you are promised is never quite as good as the hype that led up to it? For example, you work real hard for a promotion and it is given to someone else. Boy that stinks, doesn’t it? The trick though, is how you deal with it. I think once the sting of the rejection wears off a little, it’s a great time to sit back and take stock. Figure out why this goal/event was so important to you. In this example you might just find the raise in money was the motivation and not the promotion itself. Once you’ve figured out why something is so important to you, it’s a lot easier to keep going. I once read the quote,”The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground” and somehow it fits me, so I keep it near on tough days.
We all fall flat at some point, it’s a fact of life. There is no magic number of times to try and get something right but you should keep trying until it either works, or to the point where you can look at yourself and think, “I may not have gotten what I wanted, but no one can say I didn’t give it my all.” The point is, don’t dwell on the “disasters” in your life. Heck, if I did that, I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed in the morning. Draw strength and focus on the positive in your life and allow yourself to enjoy that instead. Typically what we do have is usually enough, though we never quite want to believe it. Hear that mom? I’m happy with my friends and accept my lack of love life, so there! I said it! (sooo glad she doesn’t have a computer) I think most of all though, remember to find a way to laugh. So many times I think back to little “tragedies” in my life and I wonder how in the world I thought that event held any significant meaning is beyond me. The thing is, we live in the moment, not in the big picture. It’s not rocket science, it’s normal. If we were able to live in the big picture we’d probably find a way to fast forward past the bad parts and pause at the triumphs and this would not make a well rounded Cao a’tall.
I think once your facing forward again, you will find that things typically do happen for the best. I know this is very generalized, I am speaking of little setbacks in life, not major health/life issues, so please don’t think I’d ever trivialize something like that. Just remember, only in struggling to emerge from the cocoon does a butterfly form wings strong enough to fly.
Here’s a Kiss For You My Lady
Please Hold It Close To Heart
Its wrapped within a Teardrop
Freshly Shed from when we are apart
I’ve also added a Hug for you for when
you feel alone.
Here’s another Kiss For Luck
for when we are talking on the phone
I would have sent all of me so you know my Heart is True
But I Thought You Would be Angry
When I came Postage Due!
