Do you ever feel like the universe really IS out to get you?
You know, where you’re rolling along, finally making some real progress. The train’s not only running smoothly, but picking up speed. Opportunity isn’t just knocking, it’s kicking the door down. All the windows are thrown open letting the light of endless possibilities spill over you in glorious warmth. Umm, I’m sure you get the picture. <g>
NOW is of the essence.
Then – BAM! Murphy’s Law takes over.
More inevitable than Newton’s Law of Gravity. More destructive than Newton’s Law of Motion – to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
We’ve all been there at one time or another – probably lots of times.
Well, Murphy’s diabolical plan for me this time has taken the form of migraines. Everything from that low-grade, nagging pain that just won’t let go, but doesn’t want me to stare at a computer screen too long either, with the occasional porcelain hugging game-changer thrown in for fun.
It’s times like these we need to stay armed with optimism, stick to the plan and keep our blessings foremost in our minds – even if it’s simply that we’re glad for indoor plumbing. <g>
Seriously, I’m working a plan. Step one, Migraines for Dummies. Step two, keep a headache journal to find my triggers and avoid them one by one. Step three, stay positive and make the most of every day.
And to that end I want to recommend a fantastically uplifting blog I found one day….because even though Murphy has been working overtime lately, I’m keeping my windows open.
So share, when was the last time you had a run in with Murphy?
