Here I am trying to tell all my readers how to be happy and I’m being put to the challenge today.
I know it is one of those days were I just want to feel sorry for myself. Maybe have what I call a pity party. I try to allow myself 10 minutes for a pity party then I better get over it, underneath it or around it.
Here’s what is going on. My youngest daughter is do any day to have her baby. It is her first, so that is pretty exciting. I call her every day if she hasn’t called me to see how she’s doing. Her sisters call her to check on the situation. I’m really happy for her that so many people care and are excited about this upcoming even.
Here is the problem; when I was having my first baby and even the two after that, know body was calling me to see how I was doing. My parents lived in another state, but I had sibling that lived in the same city as I did. They didn’t bother to call and check on me.
Now I am trying hard to put this in perspective. First I know my family back then didn’t show a lot of emotions (which they still don’t). I think I am the only one in the family that isn’t scared to show my emotion. When my babies were born it was kind of like I was by myself. Their father didn’t even get excited. Now I know that part of this is my own fault, because of the chooses I made back then. It still hurts a little though.
I think it is so sweet the way their husbands take care of them when their pregnant and what an important role they play in upcoming even. It’s really cool! I missed out on all that good stuff, partly because of myself and my chooses, but it still hurts.
What I’m going to do is be thankful that I am different then my parents; when it came to these family matters and glad that her sisters were raised different then I was. We can’t go back in time, but we can change the future by how we respond in the present.
The main thing that I do when I am having an unhappy day is read or listen to something positive or motivational. I shall end my story for today and go listen and read one of my inspirational books. This one really helps me when I need lifted up. If you need lifted up today just click on the link, One Solitary Life. Hope it helps you as much as it helps me too know how every lucky I am. If that one doesn’t help look around these are absolutely beautiful books and movies.
With that said, I want to thank you for listening to me. And yes, I do have some bad days or even sad days. And that is ok, because I am not made of stone; I am human and can hurt just like the rest of you.
Thank again for listening to me. It always helps to have someone to talk to that listens. I’ll let you know when the baby comes and if it is a boy or girl. The parents wanted that to be a surprise, which is nice.
I’ll go change my unhappy into happiness within.
let me know about your bad or sad days. It helps to talk and be listened too.
