Every day, as you go through your life, you come across things that make you happy, sad, angry, confused, or any number of other feelings. And then there is that one thing that just blindsides you. It stops your train of thought. It can stop you from moving on for a while. Sometimes its amazing like a joke that just is way to funny to you. It can take a long time to get back on pace after that. Other times its that car accident that almost happens. You have to stop what you are doing and process what almost happened. How it would have changed everything. The pain. The loss. And sometimes its something that just makes you angry. Some slight disrespect, or something not working the way it always does or should, or maybe even some plan you had getting derailed. Anything can be that little thing that upsets your day and just causes you to have to stop.
How you deal with that one thing, that one little insignificant thing, is what your life balances on. There is no easy answer because there never is.
And with that out of my head, and after I bang my head against the wall for another few minutes, I can get back to my day and try to make the best of it.
