100 Days of Happiness (17/100)

I was chatting on the phone yesterday with a good friend.  She was helping me with advice on a recent problem that has surfaced in my life.  We had a great talk.  It was a sojourn of a conversation — with left and right turns.  In the end, we didn’t S.O.L.V.E my problem.  Time, effort, sweat and a little luck will solve my problem.


But the last thing she said to me really settled the entire issue.  We ended, accepting that life throws curve balls now and then – but in the end – these are all 1st World Problems.  We are so Lucky to have our Problems.

Since that chat, the framing of my “problem” has been forever changed.  So, I will worry, and stress, and maybe even cry a tear or two over the next few months, but in the end — I’m grateful for my problem.  It’s so small and inconsequential compared to what others are facing.

Live today in g.r.a.t.i.t.u.d.e. for your problems.   #100happydays (17/100)

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
