Today was good, nice and relaxed.
I decided to allow myself a nice and chilled out weekend before the week ahead arrives. Tomorrow (today, technically since it’s 2:24 am) is Memorial Day; a major holiday here in the states.

So my thoughts go out to the families of everyone out there who’s lost a loved on in service to their country; not just this one but anywhere.

I have been sleeping a LOT lately; I guess it was much needed rejuvenation, and rest.

I have cut back on my coffee intake (again), and MAN does it make a difference! By midnight I feel like I’ve run a marathon, hehehe.

And here I thought it was just me being tough that helped me keep these hours!

I realized something important today: many of the things that haven’t gone the way I wanted them to, weren’t my fault at all.
For instance, when I took on my current place we had another renter to split the cost, who left abruptly. I bought a new car because my old one was totaled in an accident. The economy turned south, and my insurance business dried up (state employees were my primary market, and California is laying people off left and right). So, it’s not my fault, right?
Right.

BUT

It’s *still * my responsibility.
Understand the difference? As I look back over the last 3 years, or 10 for that matter, I can’t see where I would have done anything differently, and yet I have to deal with the repercussions. I can’t roll over and die because circumstances outside of my control didn’t go my way, all I can do is keep my mind and efforts aligned with what I want to see happen.
There is power in responsibility, the ONLY power in fact.
You can blame the world, or the economy, or your friends or your family, but in the end YOU are the architect of your own happiness or unhappiness.
Remember: either you can change EVERYTHING, or you can’t change *anything *; there is no in between.

And here’s another thing:
If there is something you are worried about, or ‘concerned’ about, ask yourself: what is the absolute worst that can happen, and if it happens: can you accept it?

I’ve looked ahead and everything I see potentially happening isn’t only survivable, but in some ways preferable!

So keep your head up; keep swinging, never say die.
And one day we’ll look back on all of this and laugh.

Well, the next few days should be quite telling.

But one thing I know for certain: is everyone is dealing with SOMETHING.
So it’s not the challenges, but how we rise to face them that’s important.

I for my part have given myself permission to stay up late for no reason, and even have a bit of beer. Tomorrow I’ll sleep in a bit and get up and hit it again; I am not taking a ‘holiday’ as such, even though it’s a BIG one here in the US (Memorial Day Weekend)…I still have too many yards to cover in a very short amount of time.

BUT THAT’S OK!

I know that in the end, everything will work out the best that it absolutely can, and I trust that God is in control of all of it.
And if God is in control, how can I be worried or afraid?

Happy Saturday!
