Putting Things in Perspective

Perspective If you read my Wednesday Weigh In post yesterday, you probably picked up on my whining about how sick I’ve been this year.  Admittedly, missing three full weeks of work over the past two months definitely isn’t a good thing, nor is being on one’s fourth round of antibiotics.  However, sometimes it takes getting some horrible news from someone else to really put your own petty little problems into perspective.

I’m not going to delve into specifics of the news I heard this morning because I know several of my readers are also friends with this particular person and I respect the family’s privacy during this time.  Personally, I can’t even imagine going through what this dear friend’s family is having to work through right now.  It’s completely unimaginable and my heart aches for them.

I guess my point of this post is just as a reminder that regardless of what petty little things we have going on in our lives, there’s always someone else out there dealing with something far worse.  So, to my dear friend, please know that you and your family are in my thoughts as you deal with this horrific situation.  Love you!!! xoxo

Until next time …

    a reminder to us all to be better versions of ourselves each and every day. let’s honor others with doing the right thing. each life has its own tragedy- may that be a wake up call from our own stupor. time to let go of comfort.

      It really is so true, Jody! It’s just a shame that sometimes it takes a tragedy to remind us of that fact.

    I’m sure your friend knows. : ) All things are better with hugs so make sure you give her a big one if you see her soon.
