STRUGGLE



OK people. Let's get real. Some days are easy. And I remember all with which I am blessed.

Today was hard. It was hard all around. Some days - like today - I struggle with optimism. Most of the time I think that I'm lucky to be here. Today was just hard. Do you ever have days like that?

My Grandpa is in the hospital, work was hard, and at karaoke (normally my safe space) I encountered some people who weren't so nice. They were actually really hurtful and mean to me.

So what do you do? When it's hard. And people are mean to you? Even when you're nice to them? The truth is that I don't have the answer. The best I can tell you is that you have to be your own person as best and consistently as you can.

If people are mean to you, turn the other cheek. It's not easy. But it's the right thing to do. At least I think it is.

There are always good things so that is important to remember. But just so you know, some days it's hard to be optimistic.

  2. So sorry to hear your grandfather isn't well and that people were so mean to you- I bet they were the ones that weren't brave enough to get up themselves? I know exactly what you mean though- at work, I'm known for being an optimist but you're right, some days it is so tough. Chin up lovely, I'm sure you'll be back to your normal cheery self soon! xx
