Since my house burned down I now have a better view of the rising sun. ~Mather Fox
How positive is that? VERY! If you're sadistic enough it even has a hint of humor.
How positive can one be when........
More and more people you know are still losing jobs
You watch or hear of poor treatment
You struggle to make ends meet
You struggle to get from one point to another
More and more people are meaner and selfish
Well.....When you start to get more and more panic attacks because you are losing time and can't pack quick enough. A knock on the door and a friend is there, boxes in hand, tape too and an entire Saturday is spent packing.
Well.....You need something critically and a friend hands you what you need to get it. In more ways then one you are saved.
Well....One door broken as it is closes and someone opens another wide. Makes room for you and allows you to get back on your feet.
Well....You learn to accept that not all will listen and watch less of their poor treatment. Pray that either they will grow strong or the predator weaker.
Well....You purchase an MP3 player and load some of your favorite songs and just sit out the commute accepting that which you can not control.
Well...You push out the ones that are mean and selfish and allow in those that aren't or at the very least balance it out.
I wouldn't want to wait until a home was burned to see the rising sun. I would want to build a lovely spot on the roof to sit and watch it (with strong sprinklers around the house).
I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.
It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.
It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.
It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.
Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.
May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.
