Bright Side

It's not the way it's supposed to be, but it's the way it is. So make the best out of it.

That's a little saying I think about when I feel discouraged about a situation in my life.  I realize instead of letting go of it, I try to fix it myself, and that's never a good solution.

Take being single, for example.  I read today that apparently now the best way to change that is to go to Wal-Mart.  Seriously.  I saw that Wal-Mart is the most common place in America that people meet each other.  Things like that make you seriously contemplate getting dressed up and hang out out in the automotive section.  That's ridiculous.  Like that's going to fix it. It might fix my car, but not me.

I remember when Plumb was here and shared about what she learned when her and her husband separated (they have since reconciled). Her pastor said that it wasn't about fixing each other, it's about fixing yourself.

So, if life isn't the way you want it, don't blame others, work on yourself.  And in the meantime be thankful that you don't have to share a closet.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. -Matthew 6:34
