I woke up this morning feeling a little sorry for myself and somewhat pissed at the world. Not very typical of my personality, but I’ve had a long and challenging week.
Today, while taking care of my usual responsibilities I received an email from a very selfless and kind friend with some news that a really bad situation had befallen his family.
It is not my place to go into detail, but it is the earth shattering kind of news that made me say out loud, “Holy Shit!” And it made me feel like someone punched me in my gut. (Especially since I had the audacity to actually be angry at the world this morning.)
Please, I know it’s cliché, but embrace what you have and your good fortune TODAY. I was going to compile a list on how to “Embrace what you have,” but that’s bull. We all know what we have to do, the actions we have to undertake, and the people we need to tell they are important.
If YOU are having a bad day, a troubling week, or a horrible month then I am sending you all of the good karma and thoughts that I can muster.
To my friend, if you read this, we are thinking of you in the Caribbean.
