I’m over at Ask Anna again today with a fun chalkboard printable for you. Some things have happened lately and it’s made me realize that what seems to be a major life event can turn out to be merely a bump in the road. I have recently seen the various reactions people can give to news that can seem catastrophic. The time, the worry, the stress and the fear. And some times, it’s not warranted – it’s simply the mind thinking worst-case scenario. I’ve also realized that way of dealing with unexpected bad news can be a coping mechanism for some. “If I’m expecting the worst, I won’t be surprised or devastated later. And if it doesn’t turn out that way, that’s great.” But what a sad way to live, to spend all that time depressed and grieving. Why mourn for something you haven’t, and might never, lose? There are better ways to spend the time and energy, in my opinion. This print is a reminder to me to carpe diem, seize the day and make it the very best you possibly can. Every single day.
Go grab this print over at Ask Anna. It’s formatted to 8×10″ and, through the link on Anna’s site, you can get a full quality and watermark-free version. Frame and hang it, make a card with it, shrink it down and put it in your wallet, whatever strikes your fancy – just enjoy!
and embrace the glass half full, the rainbow in the rainstorm, the silver lining. Life is too short to worry it away.
