Advent - Day 2







Advent - Day 2

"Rollin' with the Punches"





I was so proud of myself. I had my Day 2 Advent all written, and was ready to put it up. I took a break to watch a movie, only to find the Internet connection down when I returned to computer.

Accchhhh!


I was disappointed, but it reaffirms one of the central themes I'm going for this month: if you are alive, you're doing okay.

Whatever happens to you today, tomorrow, the rest of the month: as long as it doesn't kill you, you'll survive. In fact, if your attitude is right, you can even make it work for you.

Here I was set to write about Christmas Music, but Life (in one of its vagary disguises) got in the way. So, I'm turning it into an object lesson, and by doing so, making one less Advent I have to write! (That's a double-dub AND an okie-doke!)

Lesson #2: you can't always control what happens to you, but you can choose how you react.

Enjoy the Season!

"If you are alive, you're doing okay." is going to be my new motto. :)
