the ups and downs of life

I hate this time of year

This time of year brings up a lot of negative feelings for me. It makes me reflect on could’ve, would’ve and should’ve situations. Holiday crap is upon us. I am working to the point where that is mostly my life.

I think of making changes and then I am unsure of how. Which changes do I make? I’m scared of change. Every change I have ever made seems to have gone wrong. It’s not easy to make changes at my age.

I don’t know what the answer is. I wish I did.

  1. My favorite Chinese proverb: “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” Some of the best sweeping changes in my life started with small, seemingly unimportant decisions, made simply and without any fuss.

    I don’t mean to sound trite. I have been where you are, and sometimes still end up there again. But it truly is as simple as recognizing that I somehow got myself stuck, and then making one small change at a time.

  2. I have been trying to make small steps but inevitably something that I can’t change steps in the way. I have been making a stand in that area, though. It has been getting me in trouble at times, but sometimes I suppose you’ve gotta get in trouble to get noticed. At least that has been my experience!
