Day 352 – Clouds Before the Storm

23 Mar

I know the saying is the “Calm Before the Storm” but today was anything but calm.

It has been a very trying day. I felt off all day, just out of sorts and totally out of it, I woke up feeling that way and couldn’t shake it all day. Work was on every nerve I have and of course it was creeping by at a snail’s pace. I had all ofย  these errands and chores I needed to get done when I got home and the only thing I accomplished was getting the laundry put away. I then sat on the sofa just trying to will myself into a better place.

The evening didn’t get any easier, it actually got even more difficult. Relationships are hard and they take a lot of work whether it is a friendship or a marriage. They are tested and the future of that relationship relies on how each person reacts in those difficult situations. The universe was preparing me for a rough time today and I am grateful after the fact because it helped me to keep calm and be rational. Mistakes can be made, trust can be broken, and relationship can change but what you can take away from any difficult situation is how you handled yourself. That is the one thing that is in your control.

Now before I get all kinds of emails and texts, I am good. I promise. At the end of the day I was reminded of how wonderful one of my girls is and how much she cares for me. I am more of a seeing the light at the end of the tunnel kind of gal so there is light behind those clouds ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sorry about your day. I know you are good but I wish I could give you a big hug anyway. I love the clouds. They look ominous.

    So true Mindy, and I have often found, looking back, that the cloudy days are the best remembered. They are the ones that make me appreciate what I have. They are the ones I am most grateful for.

    Really great shot. Hope you’re doing well. It’s a cliche but it’s true: Without rain, there’s no rainbows.
