keep on going

That was rough…. Thing to do now is try and forget it…. I guess I don’t quite mean that.  It’s not a thing you can forget.  Maybe not even a thing you want to forget…. Life’s like that sometimes… Now and then for no good reason a man can figure out, life will just haul off and knock him flat, slam him agin’ the ground so hard it seems like all his insides is busted.  But it’s not all like that.  A lot of it’s mighty fine, and you can’t afford to waste the good part frettin’ about the bad.  That makes it all bad…. Sure, I know – sayin’ it’s one thing and feelin’ it’s another.  But I’ll tell you a trick that’s sometimes a big help.  When you start lookin’ around for something good to take the place of the bad, as a general rule you can find it. –from Old Yeller

 

While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert only irritates.  You must wait till it be digested, and then amusement will dissipate the remains of it.  –Samuel Johnson

 

So, I’ve decided something.  I think that my mood–specifically, the degree to which I can embrace optimism and a perfect brightness of hope–is directly correlated to how well I sleep and eat.

 

Could that be yet another part of the whole “early to bed, early to rise” and word of wisdom thing?

 

Heavenly Father is just.so.cool.

 

And life is pretty amazing as well. I am so blessed.

 

And to ensure that I keep thinking that, I’m taking a nap.
