Finding something to be thankful



So, have you ever woken up and thought it’s going to be ‘one of those days’ without even really knowing why? But, you try to shake it off and talk yourself into running or working out even though your work out partner cancelled today. Then, you think that if it already feels like that maybe today is a good day to enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee, relax, and then get into work early. Determined not to give in to the feeling, you make your way to the kitchen, fill the pot with water and as you are pouring it in one of those absolutely horrible little million legged bugs comes flying out of the coffee pot. Of course, not to be defeated you grab and smash the little bastard with your bare hands and only afterwards realize that you’ve actually touched it.

Sweet mother of God….it’s only 6:30 and now there’s no coffee! I’m afraid this isn’t going to end well but I am going to find one thing, even if it’s that the million legged nasty mutant of a bug didn’t fight back, to be happy about damnit! Ahhh deep breath…

Have a great day!

There are good days and there are bad days and this is going to be one of them. Lawrence Welk

About Magnolia Beginnings

Just when you think you have it all down it changes again or... “Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.” ― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
