The First Day of the Rest of Your Life – Episode 0010 – “Picking up the pieces”

Yesterday was a challenging day.  Almost 24 hours after the fact, it is even more challenging to recall the specifics of “why” the day was so challenging – but that’s another story.  Given the fact that I have little certainty about the future of my job and my career, the inability to drive, the need to take drugs that impair my mental state – my life is good.  I am happy, healthy and I have family that is supporting me through these troubled times. However, some days are incredibly frustrating and we don’t perform up to the capacity that we think we can and should.  Yesterday was most certainly one of those days.  When we feel like that, it is important to realize that we must keep putting one foot in front of the other and simply carry on.  Regardless of what we do (or don’t do), the sun will still rise in the East tomorrow.  It is important to try and remain grateful during these troubled times and focus on the good that surrounds us.
