Curve Balls or Scrabble Tiles??

Universe Thrown You Any Curve Balls Lately?

Ever had one of those days when you started out really good and then suddenly it felt like the Universe threw you a curve ball coated in disappointment?

We've all had them. Some disappointments are small, others are large, but they still have the same yucky feeling that gets triggered inside. You thought it was going to be one way, then it changed. And sometimes- change stinks!

I think disappointment makes us feel like little kids again.

Remember when you didn't receive something from Santa that you really wanted? Or when someone didn't do what they said they were going to do? It can certainly feel devastating at the time.

How do you handle your little kid inside feeling disappointed?

You stop, sit down, and remember that you're OK. You are an adult and you know that change happens, sometimes unexpectedly, but you can handle it. Life is a river that keeps flowing regardless of the obstacles in its path. Even if it seems the path that you were counting on has suddenly become blocked, the river will find another outlet. Be open to receive it in another form.

Remember the old saying, "When one door closes, another will appear?"

Don't stay trapped in the disappointment. You stopped, acknowledged it, gave it space and now it's time to get moving. Pick yourself up and keep flowing. Open the next door when it is presented. Be open to receive, and trust that you will always be provided for.

My day often goes that way but I try to find at least one good thing that happened to balance it all out.

This was a good blog for the times right now. It seems like a constant battle daily to get some sales, be a wife, be a mom, and a pet owner and well, whatever else happens. I'm sort of a live in the moment sort of just makes life a bit easier.

Thank you for your wonderful comments! It's true, the best thing I've learned is to be present in the moment, and surrender all the rest. I like that phrase "Don't sweat the small stuff. And it's ALL small stuff."
