"When Life Throws You Lemons" ~ Week 4~ A & I BSG Dancing Daffodils Challenge"
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
When life throws me lemons, I find relief in writing. Sometimes I will write about what the problem is, how I feel, and why life is taking this turn. It has helped me alot over the past few years. I am able to express how I feel and what I can do to overcome it. That does not always work in the long run, but sure helps at the time. I also go walking. I am able to keep my mind on what is around me, other people, scenery, and the outdoors in general, rather than the situation.
I am to write about 3 positive things about my appearance, so here goes.
1. My smile. I have been told my smile makes others smile, so for me that is a positive thing. Anytime I can help someone smile, that in turn helps me in a positive way.
2. My wrinkles. When I look in the mirror, I feel I have earned every one of them. I look at them as small accomplishments I have made throughout my lifetime, and how I was able to overcome the negative things in my life, thus bringing me to where I am today because of them. It took a lot of of hard work, and pain, but I am a better person for it, and as a result, more wrinkles. But I just keep telling myself, "yes, I have worked hard and earned them all."
3. My eyes. I have been told that I can express my feelings through my eyes, whether I am happy, sad, upset, excited, or others. It is not always such a good thing, but overall, I think it is much, much, more positive than it could ever be negative.
