|Just Love Old Doors!|
Of all the photos I could have shared with you, I choose this one. I'm not quite sure why that is, except that I can tell you, I am wild about the color. I love that this old door is well worn, that the paint is chipping and most likely if it could talk, it would speak volumes. It tells a story, the house that surrounds it, a real fixer upper!
Let us then relate this to life! Yes, yes, yes lets go there! Come on now, I will try to make this painless, short, sweet and in your face!
Who at my age doesn't have a story to tell and if you don't, you haven't lived. I'm telling you, it's the honest to goodness truth! If you run around pretending that everything is great all the time, you are just setting yourself up! You just as well put on that suit of armor and let the arrows fly, being careful to cover your butt for sure!
Stuff happens and it is not so much the incident but how we handle it that counts! I read that somewhere years ago and it always stuck with me. If you can look back, know that you have learned from your mistakes and more importantly, did not repeat the incident, count it as a victory. A huge victory indeed! It all adds up to that story I mentioned earlier.
Have I made mistakes? You bet! Have things happened to me that I have no control over? You bet! Is my life perfect? No way! Have I learned from all of it? Hopefully so! Am I going to beat myself up over any of it? Think not! The story still unfolding, a few paint chips at a time. That's what makes us human, we are fixer uppers in the making!
I am in a great place in my life right now, if I were any happier, I would have to be a twin!
Crap, wouldn't you know it, I hear that the world is ending at noontime today! Think I'll eat that piece of cheesecake for breakfast!
