Today is the first full day of spring, and I woke up to 6+inches of snow (!!!). Jiminy Crickets, I’ve had enough!
I didn’t want to go out and shovel then put down ice melt and sand. But I had no choice because we have people coming over every day to help us. We need to make sure they have clear walkways to use so I had to get up, get out there and get going.
It got me to thinking about being dumped on and how often that happens during the week—sometimes even during one day! While we can do something about a lot of it—including avoiding being dumped on—sometimes there’s just no way to avoid it. When that happens, as fast as we can, we should do our best to get over the cranky-phase of being disappointed, frustrated, and complaining. Then, whether we like it or not, it’s time to get busy and work our way through it, step-by-step and bit-by-bit.
Something better is waiting on the other side!
In my case this morning, the better thing waiting on the other side was having a clear and safe driveway and walkway for the people who help us every day. Yay!
Your homework today is to pick up your shovel and work your way through your situation bit-by-bit. You don’t have to take big shovel’s full and you don’t have to strain your back. Just take a little bit that you can easily manage and move it off to the side. Keep doing this little bit by little bit and soon you’ll make your way through to the better stuff on the other side.
Keep your eye on the better stuff waiting for you on the other side!
You can do it!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
