My colleague at work asked me how I’ve been able to be so positive after all of the curve balls that have been thrown my way in the 3 past years (i.e. my husband’s death, the breast lump scare, being laid off, teenager troubles, blah blah blah…) I reminded her that things were actually pretty good these days. She acknowledged that before noting that she has “never” seen me angry or depressed at the challenges put in front of me. I took it as a compliment as I have done my best to cling to the good while getting past the bad as quickly as possible.
If you’ve followed this site for any period of time, you know that I’ve experienced much anger and depression during these past years. I guess I’ve hidden it well in my everyday life. Certainly, I’ve tried not to dwell on it. Get it out in a blog post and then try to move on about sums it up.
There’s no sense crying over spilled milk. Just wipe it up and pour another glass.
