Fly away…

The sun sets on another day…

Last night was interesting. As I was writing the lightning flashed, and suddenly there was no power to my computer room. Ooops. Instead I sat in the dark for a moment, grabbed my mini flashlight that sits under the desk and walked upstairs, where the backup power was running. There I watched TV, then turned on a laptop and wrote, a different post than I wanted.

Sometimes you just have to take what is given to you and deal with it. Maybe it isn’t fair, isn’t right, and isn’t exactly what you want, but it is in front of you, and it is something you need to overcome. There are other times when it is just time to fly away. Those times when you have exhausted your pathways, and nothing remains but the bad, or the worse. It is then that you just may have to consider walking, running, skipping, galloping, or flying away.

When?

Only you will know.

I have faced this a few times and for me it was when I was no longer just not happy, but instead unhappy most of the time. The small bits of happiness were enough to keep me going for some time and it hurt less to walk away, than to stay. This is different for everyone though. I know, we know, that sometimes there is no easy way to do anything but fight for it all, and hold on to whatever is there.

Maybe, just maybe, there is another way, and that is looking for the good in things daily, and in the process realizing there is always a little more.

So as the sun sets on another day, this all stemmed from the picture I took a few weeks ago that I downloaded and said “wow”. I flung my camera up and snapped as the heron flew away, and it was a good shot, at least I think so. I hope you know that if you believe in yourself, anything is possible, even getting a picture of a flying bird. Believe in yourself every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wow…
