So how do you deal with disappointment. When things don't go your way or the way you plan....when the plans just don't pan out....or bring you down a road you didn't want to go...how do you deal with this?
I have been thinking a lot about this lately. Things for me have not been going as I would have planned. Now, don't get me wrong, my family is healthy, my boys are growing and blossoming like I could only dream. (and trashing the bathroom while I think they are asleep like a good toddler should).
I received a disappointment yesterday, news I didn't want....rejection. I will admit at first I was sad, when I called my husband, I felt the lump, the tears welled up, we hung up quickly...I don't have time to cry. I thought about it....I was sad about it....and now I am getting over it.
I have learned that things don't always pan out the way I expect them to or want them to. I have learned that usually there is a reason - even if it is lost on me. This would have been a big change for my life...had I not been rejected....I realize that maybe I wasn't truly ready for that change, maybe I have more to learn in my current state of being. Maybe the struggles that my family and I are going through right now (many related to some of my former bad decisions) we are meant to go through a little longer, on the other end we will be stronger, closer, more secure...I just wish I could see the light at the end of this tunnel we are in....I just wish I knew when the other end was.
So this is it, this is how I deal with disappointment, when things don't go as I would like. I have learned, to , well, learn. To breathe, to relax, and to know that there will be some window opened to me when the time is right.

I was not quick enough finding the camera to get a picture of Jack when he got in there first.
