i laugh at life
Wednesday, August 29, 2007
...and yet I don't at the same time. I think it's funny and I know it's not. I believe there's a plan and that things don't just happen, but then life never ceases to surprise me. One minute I am so very happy because life is good and maybe I noticed a pretty flower on the side of the road or I learned how to knit a new stitch. Maybe it's because I met a random friend at the coffee shop just when I thought meeting kindred spirits never happened anymore. Maybe it's because I got a pretty substantial order that I thought I wouldn't get, or that unexpected smile I received or just seeing people being happy. There are so many times in life when you think all is lost, when you're depressed and all you want to do is dwell on the bad. But isn't it funny how those horrible times pass and all of a sudden you find joy in life again? When just those simple pleasures in life are sometimes the greatest of all? Yes, I am amazed at life. I still laugh at it. Because when you look at the big picture; when you think about what you stress over and worry about, it's all very funny.
