If you're happy and you know it, thank your ex..
(April 2017 Blog Entry)
Sometimes you gotta look back at your life with a big smile, and just laugh at how many times you were certain that you “knew” what was best for you, but ended up being completely wrong.
I remember staying at a job that I really hated because I thought it would look good on my resumé, but nobody ever cared that I worked there. Or the many times I spent a lot of money on something that I thought would enrich my life, only to lose interest in it right away. And don’t get me started on crying over failed relationships, only to later be grateful to have dodged a bullet... again!
So I don’t know about you, but I’m grateful that some things didn’t work out the way I once wanted them to.
Nowadays, when I REALLY want something to happen (or not happen), I gently loosen my grip, smile, and trust that anything truly meant for me will never miss me, and that which misses me was never meant for me.
Think about it: everything that has happened in your life has brought you to this very moment, right here and now. So whatever is happening in your life today is preparing you for what is going to come tomorrow (or the next day). So don’t worry about getting stuck where you are (or worse yet, try to cling to where you are), because the only thing we know for certain is that it won’t last (whatever it is; good or bad). Just enjoy it if it’s good because it will soon be gone, and don’t fret if it’s uncomfortable because it will soon be over. Take the stance of an observer watching it all go by, and enjoy the show. All of it.
With much love from your brother,
