This Too Shall Pass

I’ve lived in Kansas where the saying is, if you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes.  I’ve also had a week start off fantastic, and by the end of the week my outlook is very poor.  Then I’ve had a day start off all wrong, and by the end of the day things are all going the way I like and I’m on top of the world.

What a difference a week can make.

My whole life has changed in one heartbeat.

My point?  The only thing constant is change.  I can’t remember where I read my title, but I’ve said it to myself over the years.  This too shall pass reminds me that even as the wheels are coming of the cart and I am in the midst of a meltdown, things change again. 

So, my outlook for the bad days, and trials that life is so full of, “This too shall pass.”  Professionally I’ve been in the doghouse with the bosses, and after a week, things have turned around and everyone is looking at life through rose-colored classes.  (Or the reverse, one oops will negate a whole month of attaboys!)

Life is full of ups and downs.  So enjoy the highs and endure the lows.  It is how we deal with them that develops and shows our character.  At times I don’t deal well with my lows, other times I roll with the punches.  Just remember to enjoy the good times, they help you deal with the bad.

So when things are not going the way I like them, I just tell myself, “This too shall pass.”
