Dealing With Disappointment

Some say that there's a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow. If you are a bright-eyed 7 year old, new like that will have you running for miles. Unfortunately, no 7 year old that I know has ever found the end of a rainbow, nor the pot of gold....only some disappointment and maybe the occassional four leaf clover.

We as adults face similar situations in our lives. Other people around us dangle carrots on strings to lure us into believing their false realities in an effort to use us to complete a task that they can not complete on their own, or even just for the sake of mere monetary gain. We raise our hopes up so high that when the bubble bursts, we feel like broken souls on an empty sidewalk when all is said and done. We were merely pawns in a game, and people used our own dreams and emotions to take advantage of us.

For some, this collapses their entire world for months and years at a time, for others.....this lights a fire like no other. And you know what? This is how it should be....even if you do collapse at first. Pick yourself up off the sidewalk and get ready to fight. Your dreams haven't gone anywhere in ten minutes time. You are just clouded by strong emotions....and now you need to harness them. It's time to direct your energies into something more positive. Manage your own operation. Be your own captain. Decide where it is that you want to go, and take yourself there!!!!! Now!!!!! This is a call to action ladies and gentlemen. Don't lay down and die. Achieve the unachieveable and rub it in the faces of those who have used and doubted you without saying so much as one word. Deal with your disappoint and claim your victory! The world is yours!!!!! Take care everyone!

See you next time!!!

  2. I believe we all have some sort of tug of war inside of us. It's not just you. If you are to ask any neurologist, they will tell you, that the chemical composition of the human mind is changing 24hrs a day. And if chemicals are even partially responsible for our emotional patterns, then how could some sort of fluctuation not cause all of us at least some sort of tug of war? It really is just a matter of overcoming and taking charge.....mastering our own internal envirnoments, if you will. Oh well, that's just my two cents. But hey, I'm no medical professional! lol
