Find Your Bright Spot

Saturday, July 13, 2013

"He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how ." Friedrich Nietzsche

Life can be so hard . There is stress, money and family issues , There are health scares and diseases to conquer .Even when your life is ultra good something always has a way of coming up.

We need to find our happy. The thing among all the stress that makes us happy. Maybe it music , grandchildren , exercise , good healthy food sunshine, the beach . Find something that makes life worth living .

Find a hobby , read a book , go for a walk in nature . Enjoy your pool or garden. Be happy your family is together , that you are in a healthy relationship. Find the positives.

I remember being in the waiting room at the children's hospital when my daughter was four. She was getting a pacemaker. I brought my knitting to calm me. Other moms there for other scary reasons stopped their worrying to ask about my project. My husband put on sports on the tv soon other dad's were checking the score and talking teams . We all bonded and hugged and the ultra scary stress filled day became lessened for us all. We are lucky we are blessed.

Always no matter what situation you are in try to find that bright spot , it will help you get through the day or hour. Tomorrow is always a new day to behold . Hugs

    Wonderful words to remember Joanne. I came
    back from a little holiday and while I was with
    my friend, she told me that the first thing she
    does when she gets up is to thank God for another
    beautiful day on this earth and for the blessings.
    Mainly her family, roof over her head and food on
    the table and to live as healthy as possible. She
    suffers from arthritis (hands) and is so upbeat and
    positive, I have decide to take note and do the same.

    I know what you mean ....... Our baby had her first major surgery when she was less than 24 hrs old, followed by four more major surgeries by the time she was 1.5 yrs ........ You just have to keep it together ......... 'someone' always needs us to do so .......... and by His' grace, we get thru it ............... emoticon
