Life Can Be Funny

Life can be funny.  Then it can be full of greatness and then sadness and then bordeom and then exhaustion.  Then either way it can turn around and surprise you in so many ways. 

The thing I've learned about life is you never know what's coming next and all you can do is get ready for it.  This probably sounds like one of those bad posters you'd buy at an airport, with people parachuting out of a plane with something like "Teamwork" written across it.  I'm okay with that.  {end story}

What's the one thing you've learned ~ or maybe haven't yet ~ about life?

    I have not learned how to leave the past where it belongs!

    What I really like about this post is that it speaks to life in its many ways. I feel like sometimes I expect life to be just one thing and forget it can always be something else. Thank you for the reminder.

    You say, “You never know what’s coming and all you can do is get ready for it.” I think you can’t get ready for something that you don’t know will happen.
    I spend a lot of time and thought trying to be ready for anything, but it’s just not possible. So I’ve decided to work on spontaneity and just seeing what comes along. It’s hard for me.

    I’ve learned that living life well is about finding the balance. We need to stop expecting roses and kittens all the time. Sometimes like is more like cow dung and cockarocaches. That’s what helps us appreciate thee better times even more.
