I don't even want to think about how long it has been since I blogged.
I don't even want to go through all the trials and tribulations we have gone through to get us to this point in our lives.
(Let me tell you, when I sit and think about it, I am amazed at all the crap I have gone through, all the hard work I have done, and so many, many failures, difficulties, and frikin crazy bitch people I have had to deal with!)
I am actually quite amazed we have made it here.
Here, being a place where I wake up and am so thankful for the beauty around me.
Here, being a place where stress is so much less than it was a mere year ago.
Here, being a place where I can actually understand that I would not be here unless I went through all that crap. (well, and also wouldn't be here without the help of family and friends to get me through all that crap)
All those here's are a state of mind, really.
And knowing I didn't give up, I always knew better things would come.
I always try to see the bright side of things, and now I know that eventually the bright side is what faces you every day, as long as you continue to focus on it and keep going until you reach it.
So, this Music Monday focuses on that power of thinking, that philosphy that can really pull you through.
Look on the Bright Side
- and also, so important -
Never Give Up.
Okay, maybe not for those guys in the video, but at least they had a catchy tune to send them off.
Now let's all whistle......
