Just a thought to ponder.
Bad shit happens, just does, and it can’t be undone, avoided or hide from…it happens.
It happened to me, maybe it has happened to you.
It leaves you weak, and sad, and angry and flipping mad. It changes you, and it makes you wonder “What did I do to deserve this?”
Crickets…that’s what you will hear usually if you ask that question.
Instead you should be asking, “How do I move on?”
I spent too much time worrying about how I was brought to my knees and not enough energy trying to get back up.
“Easier said than done, Kelly.”
No it wasn’t easy, it wasn’t fair, it wasn’t what I wanted to do…
I wanted to lay down, to give up, to have a pity party for one.
Maybe you do too?
I get it I do, but you are wasting time.
Time you can never, ever get back.
Time with your loved ones, time with your friends, time to make a difference.
At the end of the day it is your life.
Bad shit happened.
You get to decide how to live now.
I don’t want to let ‘bad shit’ define me.
I don’t want to let it decide how I live my life.
I want to live in the now and the present.
“The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart,
the less capable you are of loving in the present.”
Barbara De Angels-
Anger and hate weigh you down.
Anger and hate change you.
Just a thought.
“‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up
I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am
I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.
Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)”
