Life is good. Today I am happy for my life, my health and my family. Life has been a roller coaster with our sons. Up and down, maybe a yo-yo. It is hard to accept the fact you cannot change things in other peoples lives, even family.
My dad and mom were wonderful folks, but I would not listen to all their advice. When you are 16-20 you are so smart, even an ‘ignorant’ teen ager has a mind, and though most cannot think a problem thru realistically, they do not know, until they try. I guess it is like learning to walk, every living child has surely fallen at least once, but it did not cause them to stop trying.
I like to think I am mature enough in my 70’s to understand this, but I am not. I still want to fix a broken or ignorant life. I understand the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Therefore (unconscientiously only (LOL)) I am a nut case.
I catch myself trying to repair something that is broken, but ‘it’ doesn’t know that it is broke, maybe it does but doesn’t care.
I have mentioned that I tend to wear the keyboard #’ off my keyboard. That is an example of knowing what causes it, but won’t change to fix it. I type with the ends of my fingers, not the pads of the end digit. I also tend to hit them hard, so my finger nails eat away the paint. yeah I know you never thought about that, huh? LOL
But I am happy, at this stage (In the game of life) I am making a concerted effort to truly understand I cannot fix EVERYTHING. I remember once when my older son was going thru a terrible situation, I stood alone, crying like a baby and said out loud, I have always been able to fix ANYTHING and I cannot even help my son.
It is hard to face the fact we ARE LIMITED. I might gripe and fuss, but at the end of the day, I am, and always have been a happy positive person. Sherry once asked me what I would do if my ship would sink in the middle of the ocean. Without a second of doubt I replied, “I would swim home, grab something, but some how I would get back to you.”
Thanks for coming by the Log. BE POSITIVE!
Too many people are positive, (positive something is going to go wrong!!!)
