Beauty That Still Remains + #MyPostMonday The Week's Best Original Content

I really should be writing a patriotic post, seeing that tomorrow is July 4th and all, and it's one of my favorite holidays, but I think I wrote one last year. Oops, no I didn't I was really into the Summer Olympics about that time! But I did write a post about one of our founding fathers recently, John Adams! So I think we'll let that suffice! As for today's post.....

This week has been a study in realizing that just because you think you've gotten so far in life, doesn't mean that something can't totally blindside you and throw your world spinning around in the other direction, out of it's natural orbit, floating unguided out into space. I've had a rough week, that's for sure. I don't know what direction to go right now because of work issues, health, an injury, and a betrayal. That's a lot to deal with in a week and I only know that I need to keep going. I keep thinking I've learned the lesson of 'Keep Moving Forward', and that I passed the final awhile back, but it's far from over. I guess it won't be done until I'm done...like done, dead, and gone!

I feel so grateful for the little things, though. Life is precious and I appreciate it! It makes me think about others who have gone through so much in their lives and who always kept an unusual, almost freakish sense of positiveness and gratefulness. 

I'm thinking of Ann Frank, who's world starting collapsing in on her, getting narrower and narrower, until it finally snuffed out her very existence. But her journal lived on and she was so grateful for the little things! 

Unlike Anne, I'll be back to my usual feisty self and probably doing great! Things have a way of working out if you just step back for a bit and let the planets align themselves again.  And when they do, for a moment the world is absolutely wonderful!!!

Today is "My Post Monday!" It's all about original content from bloggers who care to share what is on their minds--from Crafts to Camping, Wellness to Wealth, Fashion to Food, and whatever else is on the brain!  I  open up with a post of my own and then follow it up with a linky of the week's top original blog posts! It's all about what the writer thinks, believes, and knows--in other words, they are active, writing blogs. If I happen to find a great original, non-sponsored post, I'll link it up and share it with you here and on Twitter via the #MyPostMonday hashtag!  I can miss some amazing posts, but I don't want to!  So, in addition, if you'd like to link up yourself, you can do that too!  I'll visit your site, comment, promote and publicize!
