Outside the window, the sun is shining, somewhat, and it's raining.
The weather conditions are a perfect metaphor for my outlook. Sunshine and showers. Only, I thought that things were looking pretty bright and today I feel that things are not good and are just going to get worse.
One thing that's bothering me is that I really seem to have lost a friend. I don't know what I did that made her turn away. I wish I knew but even more so, I wish that we were still friends. It hurts sometimes.
Other things bothering me include the fact I still don't earn money, my house still gets messy, and I want my husband and I to do better. Whatever that means.
OK, perhaps, I'm mostly hurting about my lost friendship. Perhaps I'm just not at my best today. But I wish that the ideal metaphor for my outlook on life was the sunshine I witnessed at Clearwater Beach a few weeks ago. I guess that life is not always that beautiful though. Sometimes we have to deal with rain.
