If something could go wrong today, it did, and at the same time, I had a run of good luck, as well. Which means this day has just been all together one very weird day. But as the day is starting to wind down, and I am beginning to decompress, and looking forward to sitting by the fire, I realize I am in a much better mood than I have been lately and I am actually feeling fierce and fabulous. Which, in my opinion, is how people should feel all the time, but as well all know, that isn’t always the case. Life has a tendency to bog us down and make us feel heavy with the weight of our world resting on our shoulders. Notice I said “our” world, that’s because everyone has their own universe they live in, while sharing the same space. The stressors I have today, are not the ones I had three weeks ago, and they are probably not the same ones you are facing in your own life today, so everyone, at some point, feels the weight of their world, and the shoulders begin to slump, the eyes lose their dazzle and people lose their shine. You would think on the day I had to once again have the Cancer antibody test that I would be feeling down, but I’m not. Maybe because I know a negative attitude is as powerful as a positive one, and I cannot allow myself to wallow in the world of what ifs, no one can actually. No matter what it is you have already faced, and no matter what troubles come your way in the future, there is nothing that cannot be handled one day at a time. Truly think about that for a moment, and all the things you have gone through in your life, and KNOW in your soul that taking baby steps, day by day is the only way to get through the tough times, and maybe putting on a mask of fierce and fabulous, because I believe firmly in the idea that what you show on the outside, reflects to the inside, so fake it until you make it and strut through the hardest of days and nights like a model on a runway!
