I've changed the name of this blog several times - I may do it several more before I find the right one. A few days ago I saw this image, and I've been thinking about it ever since. So far, 2013 has really kicked my butt and it might not be over. I've had a major health scare, loads of family drama, and a burgled house. It's gotten to the point where we've made sure not to ask "what's next?" because we don't want to open up any opportunities for any more!
Instead, I'm moving forward. No longer dwelling on the past, even the very recent past. It's so hard, but I need to dig deep and let things go. Take care of myself and my family. Know that things will turn around. And that even when things are so, so bad, there is always a positive lesson to be learned.
I have a friend who is prolific with posting inspirational quotes on Facebook. I liked today's:
"It’s not what happens when the sun shines that defines you. It’s what you do when it rains."
