I’m usually an optimistic person, taking the absurdities of life in my stride and always looking for ways to turn negative events into positives.
As if to test my upbeat spirit The Universe has lobbed a couple of unusual challenges my way, recently. (A long~term injury and redundancy from work ~ nothing that won’t sort itself out with time and patience. See what I mean? My middle name should be ‘Polyanna’!)
I’ve done all I can for now ~ but waiting can be wearing and I’ve been ‘down in the dumps’ this morning. It’s a good job it’s Nurturing Thursday, then! 😉
I’ve trawled though my inspirational and uplifting quotes and chosen the one above, to remind me to smile and breathe. Despite my impatience for a satisfactory resolution that would enable me to get on with life, I can only live in the moment. And it is wonderful.
The clouds have cleared, the sun is doing it’s best to shine and my garden’s flourishing. Materials to turn our outside building into a studio have been delivered and building work is already under way. I don’t even have to cook tonight ~ we’ve decided to treat ourselves to a Chinese take~away.
I have a roof over my head, clothes in my closet and food on my table (well I will have, as soon as The Ming Garden opens!) And, as if that wasn’t enough to cheer me up, I’m totally adored by a loving man and a fox terrier.
What more could any woman wish for? Life isn’t so doom~laden, after all! 🙂
