Waiting for the other shoe to fall.  What a way to live.  This is a fear-filled way to approach life.  Of course, the opposite is a Pollyanna view in which everything is wonderful.  Isn’t it beautiful how you are able to choose your point of view!  Life does flow in cycles in the human realm.  Yes, there are ups and downs, cycles of good and that which is not pleasant.  This is life.  Do not spend it waiting for the next cycle, for the next shoe to drop.  Be in the moment and find the goodness beneath whatever is happening.  Even in the most painful moments, love is there.  It can be no other way.  Even in the bleakest of places is beauty.  Always within your heart there is love or you would not even breathe.  Find the gratitude as you ride the waves and be here now.
