Mature Mondays #3

Something that is thought provoking and/or inspiring. 


I have learned that using my circumstances as an excuse to be miserable and negative reflects not on my hardship, but on me.  

Sure, what I'm dealing with might not be all rainbows and lollipops, but it certainly isn't the worst thing out there.  I still have a home. A family. A future. Many things to be thankful for. So I can use my hardships, or trials, as a way to grow, or I can treat them like the world is ending. can still read this, so it must not be the end of the world after all.

I take comfort in knowing that I am not my trials--I am what the trials make me.  So what am I? I don't want to be an egg, hardened from life, when I could be so much more.  From this day on I shall continue to aspire to be a potato.

...........this was supposed to be meaningful, I swear. 


God bless,

  1. Hee hee, this made me giggle. I love it. FROM NOW ON I WILL BE A POTATO! We should start a club or something. No eggs allowed! We can wear potato t-shirts and sing songs about, well, potatoes and we can have a secret password (Mashed potatoes [that one is rather depressing actually, if you're a potato anyways, if you're an egg, well, I guess you can laugh]? Potato salad? Russets and Reds?) and handshake and everything.

    1. This is absolutely amazing. I say Operation Potato is full go. POTATOES UNITE!
