So I’ve been thinking . . . why do bad things happen to good people? And why do good things happen to bad people?
I know, I know, it’s not that simplistic. And the reality is stuff happens, good and bad to everyone. I guess what’s “bad” and what’s “good” can change on any given day. And it’s all relative anyway. But bad things happening is what’s been on my mind this week.
It’s been a challenging week for a lot of reasons. And on Thursday, the last straw broke my (already hurting) back. So I did the only thing I could do in that moment. I cried in the Target parking lot. Then I talked with a good friend. And guess what? I’m human. Shit happens, and sometimes I need to break down to build back up.
After that moment, I felt better. The shit was still there but I felt like I could handle it. And I did. Then you know what else happened? I realized there were so many good things that had happened as well. I let the bad outweigh the good. And that’s ok too. Yes, it’s all how you look at it, although sometimes you look away from the wind before you can look into it.
And another thing (or two or five) . . .
- Zero talent required.
- Cool art installation.
- I’m retiring to one of these places.
- Because this made me happy.
- Because this also made me happy.
I’ve been reading . . . The Firefly Dance still. My back is a lot better but it’s still hard to sit up and read. I’ve also been reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. And, yes, it works. (More on this later.)
I’ve been watching . . . Game of Thrones, what else? Too much to say here about it, but dang, this show is good.
You know what else I’m watching? The Voice. It’s a great show to have on in the background while I’m doing stuff around the house.
I’ve been a little disappointed in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so I haven’t finished watching it. Just seems to be lacking a story for her so far. I am excited about Grace and Frankie. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin crack me up. Gotta say, I’m kind of loving the show.
I’ve been listening to . . . mixes of music again but this song always makes me feel better in tough times.
Have a wonderful weekend!
