Put to the Test Even More – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 19

Keeping Optimistic

Well, it’s official…my laptop is on the fritz and I brought it in for a check-up.  I won’t know anything until Monday, Tuesday, the latest.  Nothing like a little laptop hiccup during the Easter weekend.  So, in the meantime, I fired up our PC, and, to my surprise, it still runs!!!  Slowly…and the space-bar is missing from the keyboard, but it’s something.  At least I’m able to get my blogs in each night.

Speaking of hiccups, I had to make a trip to the dentist because I have a hole in my tooth.  I was really hoping to have it pulled and done, but, no such luck. I’m on antibiotics and the big day is next Friday.  Oh joy!!!

Sometimes, it can be really difficult to see the big picture when it seems like you’re just getting cold water dumped on you over and over. Believe me, I can attest to those feelings because sometimes I see the here and now; get overwhelmed by what’s going on at THAT moment.   But, as usual, when the smoke clears (which is usually a few minutes later,) it’s not all bad.


Everyday, we make choices, and those choices determine our day.  Rather, how we REACT to those choices determine the outcome.  No one can “make” us do something or cause us to have a bad day, or why we are frustrated…etc.  It always comes down to US.  We determine all these things.  Stop the blame game, looking to others as the scapegoat.  Look in the mirror.  We choose how to react to things, and it’s always up to us;no one else.

I think I’m rambling now, so I’m going to quit while I’m ahead.
