this is me now

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

what is disappointment and how do you avoid it? not really a rhetorical question---- the pessimist in me says "lower your expectations, you will never be disappointed"---the optimist in me says "readjust what you thought was the optimal result---and you wont be disappointed---just see new options"---the control-freak in me says "if you work hard enough you can plow thru and power thru anything and have it happen the way you think it should"---the realist in me says "whatever" (maybe that is more the fatalist)---the mom in me says "dont you see the bus coming? get out of the street!".

yes--I know---this is fairly cryptic---but its my blog and I can crypt if I want to.

The only thing that comes to mind is, "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger." Remember a story I told in RS a while ago? About the donkey who's in a hole and the townspeople want to bury it alive rather than get it out? The donkey steps up every time dirt is thrown down and eventually he emerges from the hole. So, when dirt is thrown your way, step up! Hang in there!
