Happy Memorial Day Monday

Today I woke up and I felt really good.  No I mean really, really good.  I read my writing journal (I have every kind of journal you can think of) last night before I went to sleep.  I was feeling bad as usual because of situations that I have in my life right now that I can’t do anything about.  You know I should repeat the Serenity Prayer over and over and over until I get.  Let it go and let G O D handle it !!!  I always make things worse, when I think I am making things better.  It for some reason never turns out that way 😦   My husband is my best friend and he has the best outlook on life and himself.  If people treat him bad, he just doesn’t bother with them anymore and he doesn’t stress about it.holly-stadler-serenity

When I was a teenager, I had to be sent away to a place to learn how to love myself.  They taught me so much about myself.  The most important thing I learned is to stand for something.  Don’t settle just to be liked or accepted.  Love yourself, because in the end that’s the only one who matters is YOU.  Then I came across a musing in my writing journal…


There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and the people who create it.  Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the B A D , and focus on the good.  Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t.  Life is too short to be anything but happy 🙂  Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living ❤

I have decided today that I’m not going to feel bad anymore.  To everyone I have ever hurt I am sorry and to all those who have hurt me on purpose or by accident I forgive you.  I am done carrying this in my mind, playing over and over again.  Like the Titanic, it sinks every time and Gone With the Wind, Rhett still doesn’t give a damn.  So I’m moving on.  I have so many things in my life to be happy about.  Our son’s are professional dancers and they are beautiful to watch on stage.  One of my son’s is in China and he has taken me along on the trip albeit a virtual trip, he’s there and I can’t wait to see all the pictures and hear all the stories when he gets home.  I have a husband who loves me to pieces and just wants to see me happy 🙂  The Chicago Blackhawks are still in it (The Western Conference Finals) by the way it is game #5 tonight !!! B O O M

See I have so much to be thankful for and happy for that I am just going to stop stressing. I am going to make brunch today and I am going to juice with my juicer. Michael loves the juicing. I am going to plant my flowers that I bought (if it stops raining) and I’m going to BBQ tonight. Maybe I’ll even make some potato salad !!! Then the puck drops at 8pm !!! We are going to ichat w/Connor during the game. It’s a lot of fun to do that. The world has gotten so much smaller with all of this technology. Although last time we ichatted during the game I fell on the computer and nearly broke my nose. It wasn’t pretty

Well I hope you enjoy what’s left of your weekend.  I know we will.  Happy Memorial Day fellow blogger’s ❤
