You Think You Got It Bad ???????

Standard

I ran into a friend today who I have not seen in a long time. He was really upset and visibly shaken.

His life is falling apart with problems. He feels lost and humiliated. His thoughts are out of control with grief.

We spoke at length about the situation and I told him how sorry I was for his burden of losses. There was nothing else I could do but stand there and listen.

As soon as he left I turned to continue my journey. I realized I have been so consumed with my own battles with grief that I did not step away and see that my problems could be a lot worse.

I feel sorry and compassion for him and must thank him for the reminder that I really don’t have it that bad.

There is a saying: If everyone put their troubles on a table you would take your own back. This is true.

Step back from your own thoughts and know that you have the exact challenges you need to grow now. You are where you are supposed to be now. You are learning now. No trouble last forever. When the chaos stops you will be even better.

Friendship is born at that moment

when one person says to another:

“What you too? I thought I was the only one”.

Moe

Standard

Once upon a time there was a cat named Moe

He took a ride on a boat to row

Off to China to find his friend Crow

After much adieu from friends and foe

Moe took off and the wind did blow

Moe found Crow in China’s grotto

Crow said Moe I don’t want to go

Moe was sad and bid bye to his bro

See you soon pal at the next road show

Don’t feel low if your friend is a so and so

Go to the diner and get a sloppy Joe

Moe is happy he didn’t have to undergo

Anymore woe from his ex-friend Crow

Who ended up being a real Joe blow

Moe went home with a row, row, row

Back to friends and foe

Where’s Crow they wanted to know

He refused to come back woe, woe, woe

It’s better this way I know

Better to let go of long ago

Time to outgrow the status quo

Change is good from head to toe

Wanna make my life a picture show

And not hold back from electric glow

Just like Santa with a Ho, Ho, Ho

I will move forward with streamline flow
