Thursday Thoughts: Universal Self-talk

It isn’t easy. Nothing ever is. The world crowds in demanding this and that, taking rather than giving. And it gets hard. So hard there times when hiding under the covers for the rest of the day seems like a smart thing to do. Times when dealing with the world is just too freaking hard. Times when the hard piles on so deep you wonder if you can breathe. Times when you look around and other people seem to keep finding the easy path and all you get are roadblocks. So, do you sit and wallow or do you square your shoulders and keep putting one foot in front of the other? Yeah, my dad didn’t raise me to be a quitter. So what if things are tight, if sales are down, if the world seems like it’s going to hell in a handbasket. (What does that even mean?!?!?) As long as I’m breathing, there’s a chance.

Almost no one ever says it will be easy.

Actually, most say it will be hard. Really, really hard.

What do you tell yourself, day after day, Silver?

Besides all the sweet talk, Silver?

Sweet talk? Naw. I wouldn’t know what to do with sweet. I need to kick my own ass from time to time. Today is one of those days. I now consider myself kicked. How’s your day going?

  1. The day’s going good. Wallyworld was a zoo, but I kept a happy outlook and managed to put smiles on a few faces while I was there. Picked up critter feed so all the deer, squirrels, birds, foxes, possums, raccoons, etc. will be happy. Saw a bunch of hawks on the drive south. And picked up some new lures on sale. Life is good.

    One foot in front of the other. Regardless. Just keep swimming. The alternative is unacceptable.
