When it Rains ... it pours - or so the saying goes, but what if it is only a slight, steady sprinkle? Does that mean I should get my big umbrella or will my rain coat suffice just fine?
I'm not saying the bottom is about to fall out, but there are definitely some interesting things going on all around us. Economically, the US seems to be in shambles and the world is not super hot either. Politically - well, for us, it's an election year so take it for what it's worth. In my life personally...strange things have been popping up and while I don't believe in coincidence - I am refusing to believe there is something bad brewing around the corner.
I am typically a non-optimistic person, I am a type A personality, perhaps a little OCD, demanding most of the time and extremely persuasive when I want to get my way. I 'feel' with my gut in a lot of situations, however I don't always heed my own advice.
I had a friend recently find themselves in a predicament where the outcomes could prove very bad - personally, I don't believe it will come to this extreme and that in the end, while it may be a bit rough getting to that point, the end will be ok. Shortly after this news of my friend popped up in conversation, I was thinking to myself - things like this don't usually happen to me, and slightly enjoying this fact (and slightly worrying that somehow I'd escaped this flaw in karma only to realize it will catch up with me all at once at the most in opportune time) when out of no where, I got my own dish of 'not so great news.'
It is nothing major, nothing I feel overly concerned with, but it makes me stop to wonder...is this the beginning of something else? Should I be digging out my golashes, my rain coat, big umbrella and my super duper rubber ducky floaties (you know, just in case the water starts rising.)
Do you think the 'bad' loads up before dumping in your lap or do you think good and bad get fairly evenly dispersed within your life?
