Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

all hands on deck... eventually

I'm so grateful I cut my own hair two weeks ago! What?

What do you do when something happens that makes you sad? Hmm, here's an example. Five days ago I fell asleep in my new office chair. Slumped over putting pressure on my right side shoulder, arm, and hand. When I awoke my hand wouldn't move in an upward position. Looks similar to a dog's when it stands on it's hind legs begging; a limp paw. And since the exact same thing happened to my left arm two weeks before this event... I suspected a pinched nerve in my neck. So while I am still taking therapy for the broken, but healing shoulder, I have added therapy for my neck.

The hobbies are all on hold. I wait to return to my usual humble self. Just so you'll know when I post something really simple, even more simple than my usual simple... it's not because I'm on vacation. I'm simply limp. Meanwhile, should you notice a repeat post from the past... forgive the action.

I know... no more sleeping in the office chair.  And what to do because this result makes me sad? Chalk it up as another life experience. Look for positives things that can only happen because this did. May sound strange, but I often think bad comes along for me to have empathy for others, or some unknown measure of learning provokes another to challenge their direction. Or maybe I need to slow down a bit.

How about you? How do you deal with the sad things?

Bye for now ~


  1. It sounds as if you look at life the way I do. In situations like yours I say, "Thank You, Lord, for the opportunity. I sure hope You know what You're doing. :)" Or else simply, "What's the opportunity here?"

  2. Aha, well Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star or superstar, realises that we have to look for the "pawsitive" in what can be "pawceived" as a negative situation.

  3. Hi Cheerful Monk. Your comment sounds pretty accurate, as I've used the last few days to inventory yard control. I simply enjoy walking the land I've inherited. There's a lot of wildlife and I wish to establish a larger area for them to live in. They're a bigger joy to have.

    Thank you for visiting. Hope the mountain life is progressing smoothly!

  4. Aw, Penny, you're a superstar and much appreciated visitor. Thank you for pawsing along the way to wish me well. Loved your recent blog!!
    Arf, arf.

  5. Hi Dixie:

    I had to stop and take another look at this one and it put a smile on my face :)


  6. Thak you, Paul, smiles are great. I might even get so excited as to slap myself silly... oops, not yet but I'll recover!
    Hope things are well for you. Blessings, Dixie
