Thursday Thoughts: Universal Reasons

So, it’s a day. Not a great day. Not even a good day. This is not the blog I planned to post. Nope. After a fitful night’s sleep filled with worries and anxiety, I woke up this morning to a warm house. The AC guy who works for the BiL never did come back to replace the board but since the house stayed cool, we could sit at the bottom of the work list. But then the didn’t seem very cool last night. And it was really warm this morning despite cooler temps outside. Then the TV in the bedroom just flicked off. It was on and then black screen. We’re already down one TV and with other bills looming and our income down, new TV(s) not in the picture. Then the lights went out. At least in that part of the house, taking the AC unit with it. So this little dandy from the Universe is far more appropriate for my mood this morning at the buttcrack of dawn.

For every setback, disappointment and heartbreak, Silver, ask yourself, “What does this create the opportunity for?”

And therein you will find its gift.

Everything has a reason,
The Universe

And if you look close enough, Silver, that reason will always be love, healing, or happy dancing, if not all three.

Dear Universe, I’m still waiting for a reason to happy dance. Love doesn’t put food on the table* or pay the bills and it’s hard to heal when you feel like you’re stuck down in a deep, dark hole. I’m ready to start happy dancing but a little cooperation would help. I keep telling myself “This too shall pass.” Still waiting.

*Well, love sort of does when you’re a romance author but when your brain is consumed with all the other crap going on in your life, it’s hard to put words up on the computer screen. It’s a vicious circle. No words, no new books. No new books, lagging sales.
