sometimes, life isn’t all perky, all the time.
sometimes, you fail,
sometimes, things break,
sometimes, people disappoint,
& sometimes, the unexpected happens.
but the great thing about it all,
or perhaps the way i’m trying to reason with every failure, break, & disappointment,
is that around the corner (figuratively & literally),
there are moments that amaze, that surprise, that take your breath away.
those are the moments that should matter, that we should all cling to when the other stuff isn’t so great.
yesterday, the latter occurred when i left work.
i simply walked into the parking lot & looked up-
a pink painted sky with a golden delicious sun setting in the distance,
& a feeling of happiness that i was able to experience it all.
