Chin Up Buddy!

It’s November now. We’re heading into the craziness of the holiday season. For most of us it’s already a time of stress and nuttiness. With the economy in the crapper right now it’s going to test the limits of some people. Fear not…I’m here to spread loads of joy…or at least say “hey, it’s not that bad” as we try to maintain sanity.

First…lest you think I’m on some happy drug or have some odd view of reality, I really AM human. In fact I’m a stressball myself. I just happen to have been raised by a family that has taught me no deal with the problems at hand and move on. Coupled with some extraordinary experiences in life, I know some things aren’t worth sweating and know we can press through the other things.

One thing I’ve come to realize over the years and I can’t emphasize enough is the importance of surrounding yourself with good people. As simple as it sounds, it really will make a world of difference. If you’re around people who enjoy life, who laugh, who love, you’ll find that a problem that was looming large a few days ago seems like a simple task to check off your to-do list now. I can’t tell you how many times a quick getaway with some friends here or family there have kept my perspective on track and kept me going despite the insurmountable obstacles in front of me.

On the contrary, surround yourself with negativity and people griping about every last detail in life and you’ll find yourself overwhelmed by even the simplest things in life. “Holy crap! I have to go grocery shopping?!?!?!”

So…chin up!
If you’re loaded down with things to do…tackle them one at a time.
Make the conscious effort to see the good people in life and feed off each other’s good energy.

Life is life…go live it!

Happy November to you all…
