Bitter or Better? 100th Post Edition
Time does fly when you are having fun!
Hey guys, the blog has been up for a year and a half now and this is my 100th post, its been a long time coming. So far, I have an average of 12 readers that visit the blog a day and a small fraction of those readers leave comments. It's been a good run expressing thoughts, posting Not just Ok anythings, videos and reading the comments from the readers these last 18 months. I appreciate every reader that has come by the blog even if you were just lurking. Also, I appreciate all the emails that I received from some of the readers. It shows that the blog is helpful and relevant to some people... and to think that this is just a hobby for me, makes it even more gratifying...
Anyhow, I just wanted to write something about reactions to events in life. Life can be a tough one especially when you become an adult and you are on your own. I was just talking to a friend yesterday and he told me that a mutual friend of ours had recently lost his Mom. The same mutual friend lost his Dad 2 years prior... Both his parents are gone!!! I can not even imagine what that feels like because I have never experienced it, but I digress.
The whole point is, life is long and you will be faced with tragedy, opposition, adversity, criticism, tribulation and so on, but generally and in the long run, you can either choose to respond to the event by being Bitter or getting Better at whatever it is you set out to do with your life. (Don't get it misconstrued, emotions are emotions and you are supposed to feel them...especially when you lose someone or something dear to you) Life has Mountains and valleys, ups and downs.
BTW, I'm thinking about starting a radio show called NotJustOk Radio, I'll keep you guys posted on the details...
