Life is a Circus
Life is a funny thing. One day you will feel as if you are on cloud 9… and the next you are wanting to throw everything you own out of a three-story window.
With quick changes like that, it’s hard to understand how so many people are able to keep a positive mindset.
Like me, for instance. I do my best to try to maintain a positive outlook on life as much as possible. I try to remember that being upset about something does not resolve anything and in most cases, makes the situation worse. Yet, I am a realist. I understand that nothing can be unicorns and rainbows all of the time.
Struggles and trials are going to come at you from all angles and you have to try to fight through them while juggling your job, parenthood, marriage, relationships, family and fun….
Sounds like some weird horrific circus act.
Well, you’re on the right track. It is similar to a circus act. Some go through their turn in the act with ease… whereas others fall flat on their faces.
The difference in future performances is what we learn from the previous act. Did we stumble? Did we drop a ball somewhere? Did we miss a step?
If we focus on the mistakes we made and work on resolutions to them, our next act could have little to no flaws. Sure, the act could change without our knowledge at times, and we will have to work with what we have to get through — but after the act has ended, we will have time to prepare for the next and account for the changes we experienced.
Plus, if the change doesn’t occur again… at least we have a game plan for if it pops up unexpectedly in the future.
So, yeah. Life is like a circus act. Everyone working together to put on a good show. We have clowns (Those of us that act as if we don’t have a care in the world), people on tight ropes (Those of us who juggle more than we can handle), lion tamers (Those who have no fear and quickly adapt to change) and a Ring master (the president).
It’s crazy that we can compare life to something so simple and silly isn’t it…
Well, life is just that — simple and silly. Makes getting through it a bit easier if we have fun while going through it!
