The Sun Will Shine

How do you handle disappointments? Broken expectations?

Anyone who is older than 6 months has had to deal with disappointments and broken expectations.

Now, if I were 2 years old, I could howl and scream and carry on in a ridiculous fashion, and while I would be corrected for that response, the response itself would be normal for a 2-year-old.

I'm a 42-year-old. I can't howl and scream and carry on in a ridiculous fashion.

So when the disappointments hit, I feel it keenly, depending upon the severity, and give myself time to acknowledge it.

Disappointments are real, they stink, and they happen to everyone, so acknowledging it is important.

Then I just have to get up and move on.

And that's not being dismissive; it's merely an intentional effort not to live perpetually in the realm of that disappointment. I don't have to let disappointments define my life and my future.

There is always something for which to be grateful.

There will be good things again. The sun will shine again!

Bare tree
Even the trees know good things will come again.
