How Things Used to Be

I’m an old soul… I relate more to how things were done than how they are done now. I understand now that I need to accept the world now but there are certain things, I still wish we could go back to. In this world, it’s so easy to give up, to not like something or for it to be hard, maybe not as you thought and to wash your hands of it. Back in the day, if you made your bed, you had to lay in it. That’s where the saying to make lemonade out of lemons and and when the going gets tough, the tough get going came from. Our ancestors were taught to dig their heels in and work through the hard times, hurt, misunderstanding and wrong doings. People nowadays don’t do that.

I don’t know where I fit in this world, I thought I did, I thought my puzzle was complete but, reality hit and we don’t live in those days anymore, and even though the pieces fit, I’m now missing half of our puzzle. With a puzzle, you can’t find new pieces, the pieces are the pieces.

Learn to forgive, be open to finding another way, and maybe don’t be so quick to give up on something.

If the bones are good, everything else can be demolished and you can begin again.

I get that some people will run even when they don’t want to, but, I’ll be here, digging my heels in, doing in the work.

God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. I know that I am going through a season and my thoughts and actions will determine the outcome. Since Happy & Healthy 2020 is what I promised myself, I have to keep moving forward.

I’ll never fully understand how these newer generations became so insensitive, so quick to make changes. But, I hope I’ve taught my boys that love always wins. Happy, sad, good or bad, I will always love them. I pray they learn to live and love the same way.
