Sometimes life just sucks! It’s a fact and you don’t always have to sparkle. Some days you can just feel like fizzling out and dying. Today was one of those days. And it’s OK.
I’m genuine, honest, and I gotta be me so to speak. I’d like to think that this kind of behavior is consistently rewarded, but the truth of the matter is that it is not.
It is what it is!
We can choose to commiserate and bitch about it, or we can choose to move on, being the people of integrity that we are. I choose to move on and remain true to me, and to be supportive, in a real way. But it’s not sparkly. And I’ve been let down in a HUGE way today.
Life is an odd bug, and people will continue to suck at times. In life, work or personal, you will often give your all and it’s not always rewarded. People will get hired, others will get fired, couples will divorce, and sometimes none of it makes sense…to anyone. But it happens on a daily basis.
No one knows the reasoning, and the “behind the scenes” will never be revealed. But the facts of life will remain. It’s OK to be a little bitter. It’s OK to feel hurt. It’s OK to have a day without sparkles. But it’s not OK to let it consume you. It’s not your fault or mine.
Today sucked! I’m OK. Life goes on and I am re-evaluating everything. EVERYTHING!
“The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.”
Today was a gift. I learned that I don’t always have to sparkle, I just have to be me. And today, I want to be sad because my efforts and hard work did not pay off. It’s OK to pout, and it’s OK to hide in the corner and cry…temporarily. But I’ll shine tomorrow and I’ll be fine in the fact that I know that I’m still genuine. And I sparkle…brighter than anyone…no matter what!
Be real, stay true to you, and in the end, the truth will shine…and so will YOU!
