Every dark cloud

My life has been pretty hectic lately. You see, life just never was the same after my divorce. I lost my job, my laptop ‘died’, then my tablet, then three weeks ago my smartphone ‘died’ as well but, I always choose to look at the brighter side of life. I mean, I’m alive and well, my kids are healthy. There haven’t been a funeral in a while. I have a roof over my head… or at least I had till early this morning just before I was evicted for non-payment of rent…. but, I’m not throwing a pity party! Every dark cloud has a silver lining. It’s just that sometimes the lining is so faint and you just got to look very hard for you to see it, it’s still there though. If it’s  really not there at all, then imagine it.   Let your faith draw you a beautiful silver lining. You can even make it gold. Who said it must only be silver? Just be creative and make your own original lining. We got only one life to live, we make choices whether we will be happy or not. There are no second chances at life, it’s best to make the best of what we have. My auntie always say, “When life gives you lemons… make lemonade.”

So, what do people do when they are evicted? Hmmm… What to do… what to do… One thing I know for a fact is that no situation is permanent. Life can throw me all the curve balls it has, I’m not sulking, no ma’am. I’m not gonna cry uh uh… I’m gonna sing a little, dance a little and enjoy every minute I’m alive. When I was younger, I threw pity parties… now I’m older, tougher and every morning when I wake up I shout, “Bring it on!” Okay, it’s not the first thing I do when I wake up. The first thing I do when I wake up is to pray. I talk to my Father who is in heaven. I do believe He is watching over me day and night. In this life, you gotta believe in something, I choose to believe in God. 

Live a little

While typing just now, I just got a call. Someone I have never met has just sent me money to buy a smartphone. The money is even more than I need for rent. So, what do you think I should do? I need a smartphone and I also need to be in  the house with my kids. Email me your suggestions on peculiartreasureza@gmail.com

Every dark cloud has a silver lining… grab a cup of coffee, or even a glass of lemonade, whatever tickles your fancy and enjoy life. You only live once. Whatever you are going through, you will come out of it sooner or later. Keep believing, keep the faith.

Sending lotsa sunshine your way,

Peculiar Treasure 😉
