Happy Friday y’all! Another week is now behind us and the weekend is in front of us. I hope you had a good week and it was full of wonderful memories. It seems like the days, weeks, months, and years go by and we do not have enough time to take it all in. There are so many struggles and challenges we face daily, but we do not always remember many others are facing worse things. My grandfather was the type that spoke nothing but the truth, which is one of many reasons something he said to me many years ago, “No matter what you are going through in life, someone else is always going through something worst”, has stayed with me through the years.
Truthfully, after I was laid off and still struggling to find another job, I have felt anger, frustration, sadness, and many other negative emotions. During this time, I think I often forgot that there were others in the same situation and had a family to take care of. I failed to remember that I do not have children or other mouths to feed and I will be okay until I do find a job. When I stop and think, I do feel bad for those that are not as fortunate as I am because I do not know how they are keeping their heads up and not surrendering to the negative emotions. I guess it is true, we are not given more than we can handle in life.
I do want to share with y’all a quote that I found to be a good reminder and inspiring. I do hope this quote will resonate with you as well. All the people we come into contact with, every action we make, and every word we speak can affect another person. These can be positive or negative, but we are responsible for this everything we do in this life. We must decide if we how we want to be remembered and viewed and always do the best we can in life.
Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you today and I look forward to your comments. I will be responding to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope whatever you do over the weekend, you do so safely. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
