Side Note:
For those who haven't figured it out, or haven't been here: The titles of most of the blogs here are song lyrics. If you google them, it should take you to the song and the song is good to listen to before, during, or after reading to help set the tone of the blog. I find music to be very cohesive with reading and writing.

Said I Wouldn't Call But I've Lost All Control and I Need You Now...

"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be." -- Marcel Pagnol

I am a fan of quotes, for those who haven't noticed. Whether they be from song lyrics, books, the news, anything. I feel like if something was memorable enough to be notated and quoted then it must have some importance to someone. The above quote seemed to encompass the thoughts I've carried in my mind as of late. So many people around me, to include myself, have been experiencing rough times lately. A majority of them seem to have given up hope and let much of the joy in their lives slip away because they dwell constantly on all of the bad.
I'm guilty of it myself, sometimes, but I've found a great truth in my life: Things can only hurt you, make you sad, make you angry or break you if you let them. You can choose to not let them. The initial sting and shock will always be there, that is unavoidable, but if you stand up and say "I am not going to let this ruin my happiness" then it actually helps.
My husband is halfway across the world, but I do not let it break me. I find ways to occupy my time and I remain ever vigilant in my belief that no matter what, he is coming home. I worry he'll be sad or effected by what he's seen, but I know no matter what we can overcome anything together.
I miss my family and it gets me down, but at the same time I have family. I am blessed with an abundance of people in my life who love me and those who use me shouldn't be able to steal away the joy the others give me.
I can do anything I set my mind to. I have the most amazing husband, the best friends I could ask for, a wonderful family and an awesome God.

  1. Yay for good moods! And you're right: things can only bring you down if you let them.
