              "The Road"

              There is a road, there up ahead. It's not really a scenic one or one you might remember all that well. There are a few trees and the occasional bridge over looking a small stream or pond, but again no one remembers and no one is really sure. 
              Before you realize it, it's gone and only a fading memory in the rear view mirror. At night its so dark that even with lights, one would think "it's still pitch black." When traveling this road you long to end the trip before it even begins. You pray all goes well and no rain or storms will assault you tonight. I'm not even sure this road has a name or is even a road. 
              Up ahead you see the turn off towards the lights of the highway. You look in the rear view mirror as she disappears and is gone till the next time. You smile, but wonder if the smile is relief or do you miss her already? Again? Like last time?

           This following statement is mine, but has been told many ways by many people, here it goes. My life like so many of yours has been like a roller coaster, most of our actions or reactions are a direct result of others actions or reactions to our actions or reactions....whew do you all understand that much, cause I'm not sure I did, anyway. 
            My point is a lot of us blame others for things that happen in our lives although we are the only one to truly blame. Without boring you all and going into many details I have lived a life of a YoYo, up and down. As of today I am in a up mode and the future looks bright. I work my butt off at a job a really like which actually involves working at 3 different businesses and dealing with the dreaded public, again I love that.
            There are those who are nice and there are those who are not. But for the most part I can deal with any type without a problem. Most people spend less than a few minutes in my life and I think for the most part I, like many others should be able to deal with that. If you can't you shouldn't have a job that requires dealing with the public in the public, it's really that simple. Part of my job is dealing with people who drink, and many have too much to drink meaning that multiplies the dreaded YoYo even more. 
             Again I can deal with that, this is my choice to deal with those types in this type of job, plain and simple. I don't rush home from my job to vent or cry on Facebook. I get paid on Fridays and I am grateful to be part of the Machine again, and again this is all my choice. At my age working has become harder and my old broken bones and body protest everyday, but like so many others I do what I have to, to have a somewhat good/comfortable life. It could be better, yes, but it also could be a lot worse. 
             There is many things I am grateful now for, and having a job no matter the pay or hours or title is one of them. Most should look in the mirror and know there are many others who have it much worse. Be grateful for what you have and look deep in your soul, most of what has been given to you, or not given to you was of your/our/mine own doing period, don't blame others. Rock on and become part of the solution not the problem.

You plow a field of nothing but dirt and you get dirt, 

change or add to that dirt and you get life. 

Wake up and change your life and your dirt will turn to breath, 

continue and nothing will change. 

It amazes me the same type posts over and over again. 

The power to change one's life 

rests within, nothing or no one else. 

Start with that person staring back at you in the mirror.
