Trying our best

Some days, you wake up and are grateful for a beautiful, sunny day and your family and friends that surround you. You are ready to move forward and enjoy the day. You look forward to enjoying those beautiful memories you are going to share with the special people in your life. Even, if it’s just sitting around reading a book together with your kids, or going shopping with a friend or talking on the phone with your mother.

You love all of the special people in your life so you do it for them, you wake up and move forward for them and you do it for yourself. Don’t kid yourself, we all want to be happy and we all want a sunny, happy day, so we try our best to give that to ourselves and we try our best to give that to our loved ones. Friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters, they make life worth it. They make you enjoy that day. So, we try our best. That’s all we can do.

When life throws you a curve ball and you’re not sure what to do with it, just try your best, to love all those that love you and do what’s right, what makes you feel good and what makes others around you feel good. That’s all we can do sometimes, is try our best. Isn’t that what we were told when we were kids? It still holds true then, doesn’t it?

But sometimes, it takes so much energy to do all of this… sometimes, it is extremely difficult to move forward. You can’t help but remember everything that has gone wrong in your life, things and people you have lost, especially when it is so very cloudy outside. It is so depressing without the sun. No wonder so many suffer from depression on these rainy, cloudy days…. the sun really motivates you to get outside and enjoy the day, to move forward.

So, I’m sending all of you some sun…. some warmth… and some love. Go out and enjoy the day, just one day at a time.  Give your loved ones a phone call, a hug and/or a kiss and watch the sun shine inside all of you. For that’s all we can do, is to try our best.

  1. Thanks. I love you. By the way, I like the captions under the pictures. It really helped explain the pictures for me.

  2. Thank you Liz for such beautiful words. You are so sincere with everything you write and you are so true to yourself. I just admire how well you express your emotions both the happy ones and the sad the ones. You are able to say how you feel and take it the next step, share it with all of us who care so much about you and your family. And then you use it to help others. I am praying for that sun to stay out today and hoping you take a few minutes to go outside and allow it to help you take each step you take today. Thanks again for our visit yesterday. We had such a wonderful time.
