Look on the bright side

Sometimes, so many bad things happen at once, you have no choice but to look up at all the wonderful things that are in your life.

After Matthew’s death, losing my job, and my laptop hard drive dying, I was feeling pretty beaten down. All I could think about was “bad things come in threes.”

But what about “third time’s a charm”? Twelve years ago, less two days, the first traumatic event of my life occurs. There’s really only two ways to go when something like that happens – you either let it destroy you, or you accept that it happened, it can’t be changed, a look for what you can gain from the experience. So after that event, at 12 years old, I made a decision to make the most of even the most heartbreaking feelings. Move forward!

While I face falling apart, I am shocked and touched by generosity that seems to come out of the woodwork. How bad can things be when I have friends, colleagues, and even medical professionals who are making sacrifices for ME?? In the past couple of weeks, any tears I have shed have been from the realization that people care about me and want me to succeed.

And succeed I will! This morning I return from a meeting with my first client and I am thrilled and excited about the opportunity in front of me. I will require a lot of work, but I’m ready.

Now… to go to Vegas or not go to Vegas? That is the question…
