I think one of the best lessons I learned from my Mom’s cancer diagnosis is certainty of uncertainty. We may think we are certain; of our day, our life, our tasks, our joys, but I never knew how comfortable I was with uncertainty until I saw my Mom fight fearlessly with a positive attitude. The vessel of uncertainty fills with hope, faith and love for all that we have and acceptance of what it is within our control. Be certain that when faced with uncertainty you have the power within; your faith, hope, joy and love of life will sustain.
Is the glass half full or half empty? It’s all in perspective right?
I choose to see my glass as half full and as I mentioned the other day in my post about believing in my own honors; don’t doubt your successes, passions, recognition that you are given and certainly don’t neglect your honors. If you don’t see your own successes, how do you expect anyone else to see it! Time is precious, choose wisely.
If you are going to do something do it right and do it well through effort, being mindful and diligent. Make it worth your time and honor your talent. You can only do so much within your control, but always can control your attitude even when we can’t change the situation. Even though others may take credit for your actions have respect for yourself and do what’s right. Honor yourself by staying big when others are small, too small to honor your greatness. You got this because the truth always prevails.
I realized the other day as embrassing as it is, I have to stop and really think about how many days are in a month. Just when I remember we are on to a new month. February, February, forget it, are we in the leap year or not? Seriously, it is the little things in life that you just have to laugh at. Yes, I know there is a song and poem, but honestly, I may of been absent the day that was taught because I can’t remember that either. My Mom would joke that I was dropped as a baby on my head, maybe that’s true! I can remember a lot, but the months, forget it. I practice, but rely on my calendar. Did this ever happen to you? My favorite pizza shop closes for a week in the summer, I glanced at the date and thought, that can’t be right because it’s a Wednesday, then I thought that’s right there is 31 days in July. I even said it aloud, I started laughing and thank goodness the cashier laughed too.
My point is, laugh at yourself because you are not perfect, keep your sense of humor and be genuine because the days run short even if we forget how many there are, be grateful for them.
