One thing I got reminded of this afternoon is that life is what you make it. You can’t always control the events that happen, and seldom ever the people involved, but you can choose what perspective and attitude you choose to look at life through.
After the crazy morning I had, I felt hectic and frazzled. About noon time I decided to change direction and headed to the mall for my walk. There’s a male friend who works there doing advertising for a gutter installation company. I first met him years ago when I started walking at the mall and we’ve become pretty good friends. I sat and talked with him for about an hour, walked a mile and a half inside the mall, came home, sat down, and just watched the snow fall outside my bedroom window for awhile. As I watched the snow fall, I felt a sense of calm and peace.
It felt good to have “gone fishing.”
