What a great line from “My best friend’s wedding.”
Has life got you down?
Are you waiting and hoping for better days?
You think you’ve got it hard?
Where is your soulmate?
Why is your family so freakin’ dysfunctional?
Are holidays more like “Fight Club” then a joyous gathering of friends and family?
Where are those children you have been dreaming about for years or worse still why does your ex have them half of the day?
That lump in your breast that needs checking, is it cancer?
That bill you can’t pay this month or next?
The relationship you realize was never going to work to begin with?
The woman you can never do enough for to please?
You are a writer, an artist, a person bursting with creativity,
will the world never see???
Are you dropping on your knees these days and wondering… why am I here at all?
You are not alone.
There is an old parable friends, and I do mean friends, because when I write this blog I know those of you who are reading it are just regular people like me.
Just doing the best you can in your life.
God heard the world crying over their hard lives.
All their myriad of problems.
He said,”Okay folks, here is the deal, everyone pack up all your cares and woes into big Hefty garbage bags and take them to the big football stadium at the edge of the city.
Then put those bags in the field, just pile them up there.”
Everyone did as the Lord said and sat on the bleachers looking at the mountain of their problems in life.
“Okay,”said the Lord,”Now everyone can choose any bag they want to take home with them and leave your own problems for someone else to take.”
Well what do you suppose the people did?
Everyone ran down to field and grabbed their own bag to take back home!
You never know what the next person is dealing with in life and your own problems and cares in life are tailor made for you.
Pick up your bag and take one step at a time.
And if it feels to heavy,
let God help you carry it.
There’s a good lesson here.
believe me there is plenty I don’t blog about,
problems like we all have,
I keep in my own four walls.
I’ll be damned if they get the best of me.
So things might be tough,
life not easy,
but turn the music on anyway,
For your own self,
if for no other reason,
…and as my mother used to say…
“Let the world spin itself today.”
