A Sad Day....

Today I suffered one of the greatest disappointments I have suffered in recent years.  I don’t want to go into details but it has made me question everything about the life I am living.  Right now I don’t know what I am going to do, but I am considering taking some pretty drastic steps.

I have my puppy Fin to thank for putting me in a much better mood today.  Without Fin life would have taken on a monumental sense of depression.  Fin seemed to realize what I was feeling and came to me and snuggled against me.  He was very funny as he crawled into my lap and won’t get out.  Early this evening he even climbed up on top of me and we fell asleep together on the couch.  Fin – you are a great dog and I am so thankful to have you!  Sorry Zack – I think you lost out buddy – Fin is going to be my dog! 

Not much else to say for today as I am utterly shell shocked from what happened.  I skipped my team-in-training run yesterday evening because I just couldn’t manage the mental energy to go and do it.

I do know this.  I have faith eternal in the future.  I have always looked towards the future with a bright and happy viewpoint.  I think that has allowed me to focus on my savings and always plan for the future.  Though I have taken a serious hit for today, things will be better tomorrow.  And they will get better the day after tomorrow.

Life will be good and I will tell you a year from now when I look back upon this day, though I feel sadness now, I am certain I will have a different perspective.

Thanks and peace to all! ~J.

Congrats! seems u have found the way to deal with sadness.
Most of us can´t. May be is cause we lose perspective life or believe that bad days can´t return if we try hard enough...
