The Friday

I have this saying "even those you don't care for, you love them a little more on Fridays."  If you think about it those who we cross paths with that come at you with negative action and behavior, are they really that unhappy?  Is their life and world filled with nothing positive?  Not necessarily...  The way I see it is they are suffering, and they are in pain.  The only difficulty with that one is that quite often they have no idea as to why they are so miserable, they have suppressed it for so long, or have blamed or pointed the finger towards others that often they project (taking it out on) their angst on everyone they come in to contact with.  Their behavior has become a natural occurrence.  So, why do people behave this way?  There are many reasons, some clearly present, some suppressed deep within their being.  A wonderful woman who has inspired and enlightened me on many occasions offered this, " their buckets are empty, and they just need a little filling (of their bucket)."  I agree.  Often those who are suffering and in pain do not often feel they have many positive experiences or support, primarily of their own doing.  They just don't believe anyone cares, understands, or honestly can do anything to change their circumstances.

It is troubling to witness this, I will not deny.  However, in order to change for the better you have to recognize, commit to change, and work, work, and work!  So, for those out there who feel the world is not fair, it's done you wrong, you just can't get over the hump...  Please start to understand that your suffering is more than likely created by your own actions and behavior.  A behavior that may be so ingrained within you that you just can't figure out where to start to change.  Well, don't think of the long term solution, just start on today, and then tomorrow, be patient, trust yourself, allow others in to your world, those that can support you in a positive way, get outside, breathe, and most importantly...  Understand that life is not a dress rehearsal, there are no do overs, you have to stop living in the past, it has already happened and you can not change that, what is done is done. If you continue down this path, your future and all and everything that you come in contact with will never be satisfactory or positive in your interpretation of.  Use this pain and suffering as a motivating force to fight on, stand up and stay up.  It is within all of us!  Happy Friday to all..

"Hope is like a path in the countryside. 
Originally there was no path yet, 
as people are walking all the time in the same spot, 
a way appears."
