The 2nd Month of the Year

I claimed this year would be great, but despite my claim to happiness, this year has been a roller coaster. We are only in the second month of the year, and I think I have experienced most emotions known to mankind. I know Life never gives us more than we can bear, but I am convinced that I must have unlimited bearable miles stamped on my heart. I also know some things are meant to make us stronger (so they say), while others are meant to teach us a lesson. Well I must be the strongest, smartest,  life learner yet, because I keep getting a new chapter of life to study. It's harder for me to watch the people I care for struggle or hurt, than it is for me to suffer. I have a "fix it" attitude about everything, and unfortunately all things can not be fixed, nor are they in my control. So for now I lay back in the cut and wait for life to throw me another curve ball. I won't let this bumpy start get me in a funk, instead I'll say, "see you at the end of the month Life, and we can recap our 28 days".

Girl, I know the feeling! When it seems like you're catching it from every direction and those that do good suffer most. However, I decree and declare victory over all things that you are struggling with in your life! You sound like I did at the beginning of 2010 when nothing was going right for me and like you I was waiting for the next curve ball to come my way...well, I got tired of waiting. I developed a "more then a conquerer" attitude. I send those negative things back to the pits of hell from whence they came. When I changed my thinking to a positive outlook I attracted positive things...life since has been better! Much better! Will there still be curve balls? Yes...will I wait for them? Absolutely not!

@Doniece, thank you for the encouraging words. I will try your method of rethinking things.
