We like to think that life flows along and we’re ready for whatever it brings. But then, the unexpected finds a way to change your thinking, rearrange your plans. As the saying goes, “It’s not how far you fall, it’s how far you bounce back.” I’ve found myself bouncing as of late. But through it all,I always waited for the recoil. It never fails. I suppose I’m too optimistic for my own good. Today, write the unexpected. Some surprise you never saw coming. Give it an optimistic twist, we can all use a boost now and again.
WALT BOUNCES BACK:
ON THE FLIP SIDE
I never saw it coming.
It was no stroke of genius,
it was a random occurrence.
Serendipity laced with reality.
I have no doubt there’s a lesson
within it, I grin and bear it
and hope for the best.
The rest is up to what is destined
to happen. A possible happy dance
to life’s glad circumstance.
There’s is an upside deep inside.
Let it rise to the occasion.
