This weekend was a slice of life. There were ups, my first Solstice party, and downs, news that Jason’s cancer may be back. There was a day of crazy busy followed by a day of mostly sleep. This is life. Ups and down moments of complete bliss and others of heartbreak.
In the past I would have had the news of Jason wipe out any good in my weekend. Now? No, don’t get me wrong. This news breaks my heart, but it can’t wipe out any joy I felt this weekend. Would Jason want that? No, he wouldn’t. This news was not shared with me to throw me in to a complete downward spiral. It was shared with me because I adore Jason and so I can offer the support that I can.
Speaking from someone who deals with depression I am realizing that I have to keep everything in perspective. I can’t allow moments of bad news become all I focus on. At which point did someone make rule that bad out ways good? Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way.
So today look at how you percieve your world. Is there bad? Of course, but what importance do you put on it? Is there joy? Of course. What importance do you assign outside influences?
Our moments belong to us. Don’t give ownership to anyone else.
Peace and blessings.
