*Today is situational saturday: my day to ramble on love, life, writing and relationships!
Do you ever have a day when you just feel like starting again? Do you wish you could get up again and hit the “do over” button? Do you wish you could just say, “nevermind”…and everything and everyone would go back to normal?
This German lady had 55 years worth of days like that: http://bit.ly/7ifr0b To sum it up, she fell when she was 4 years old and suffered with a pencil up her nose for all that time. Yep. That’s over 20,000 days that she probably wanted a do over.
Do you walk around with stuff stuck in your head like that? No – I don’t mean a pencil. I mean thoughts, worries and scenarios that keep you up at night? Those are the things that cause headaches, strained relationships and sometimes stressed related sickness.
If you are experiencing that right now, take time out to do something about it. Don’t let those thoughts and fears fester for years and years. All they do is take time off your life.
Here are some suggestions:
Go on a hike. Take a camera and shoot some pictures. Better yet, take an art pad and draw what you see.
Call a friend you haven’t seen in a while or send them a letter.
Sing at the top of your lungs…and don’t worry about who is hearing you.
Rent a funny movie and laugh until your sides hurt!
Cook dinner for a friend if you’re able – and then make a date to do it again in two weeks. You’ll both have something to look forward to!
Don’t believe the lie that you will always be under a cloud of worry. It simply isn’t true.
Write a poem.
Pray. (I know I already mentioned that, but it is worth repeating)
We all have been given the gift of life. Too often, we squander it. What are you doing today to celebrate the life you’ve been given? Right now, I’m going to bed as it’s after 1:00 am. BUT in seven or 8 hours…wow! The world better watch out! 🙂
