This weekend I was challenged with some very depressing things. The things are completely out of my hands, but never the less will have a huge affect on me. So what can I do? Nothing about the things that could shake me up emotionally, and only emotionally, for a period of time. So I just made a list and started doing things that were in my control. I am still not thrilled with some things that are about to happen in my life, but I feel a lot better that I was able to accomplish things and move forward in other areas of my life. It helped a lot not to sit on my ass. I was still sad, but not out for the count.
