Smile

imagesCA5L08TE“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

What great advice!  That really turns it all around doesn’t it?

Did you ever go on a really great vacation or maybe had an over-the-top weekend with some friends and never wanted it all to end.  Monday morning comes and it’s sometimes hard to get back in the groove.  I always felt I needed to be retrained on Monday mornings after some really fun time away.

Or, sometimes it’s a relationship or a phase of your life that ends.  Leaving school and getting a job.  Leaving a productive, fulfilling career.  Watching your children grow to adults, no more babies.  A close loving relationship that turns into just somebody that you used to know, to paraphrase the song by a similar name.

Maybe you experience the death of someone close.  Or, your own health isn’t quite what it used to be.  I’m sure you can add your own life experiences to the list.

Dr. Seuss tells us:  “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”  Our lives unfold in a magical, perfect way.  Everything that has happened in my life – and, yours – has brought me  – and, you – to this place.  This moment in time.  Cry or smile.  The choice is ours.

Namaste.
