Just trying to build a better version of me :)
Its an on-going process that leads from one “renovation project” to another. As Ripley put it, “Now I’ve done it…I made a clean spot. I’ll have to do the whole thing.”
My mom taught me years ago that you can’t help what(or who) happens to you; you can only help what you do about it. She used to smile and say “its attitude, attitude, attitude!” which would drive me and my little sister up the wall, but now I understand a bit more than my teen-age self did.
Mom was right. Build your self a foundation that will stand no matter what or who happens. Certainly, there are wonderful things and people in life, but there are no guarantees. Not for situations, circumstance and certainly not for people.
So even if it seems your world has fallen apart; if the very person you believed in the most turns out to have feet of clay; no matter if you put your tender heart in a blender, hit ‘frappe’, and its to no avail; no matter if your job goes away; not even if you lose every material possession — no matter what or who happens, as hard as it may be, you really can help what you do about it and what you allow in your heart, mind, and soul.
So, my goal is to help what I do about what happens to me- both for the things that are my responsibility and for those things that I can’t control, and keeping a careful watch on what I allow in my heart, my mind and my soul. Wish me luck; I’ll take all the help I can get…. :)
