“Mom, there’s Life on my foot!” That’s what my 4 year old said to me this morning! I said, what are you gonna do about it? His reply? “No, what are you going to do about it?” I giggled to myself b/c it was so cute coming from a 4 year old. I said, let’s wipe it off, it’ll be ok. So, there he stands on his chair with one foot in the air while I wipe off the Life that was now smooshed to the bottom of his foot. “Oh wait, mom. You missed some. Right here.” Thanks for the direction!
His was Life cereal that missed his mouth at breakfast and landed on his chair only to find him again when he used the chair to get a snack out of the cupboard. (No, I didn’t check the chair after I cleaned up the table!) But, it struck me as very pertanent right now. What do you do when life gets sticky and clings to your shoes? Do you ignore it? Brush it off without a second thought? Worry too much about what might happen if you brush it off?
The funny thing about life is that it always works out. I believe that if things were meant to be, they will be. Everything happens for a reason. There’s always sticky situations in life and it’s how you deal with them and what you get out of them that’s the true lesson. Yeah, it may suck along the way, but no one ever said life was easy. I don’t think it’s suppose to be.
For everyone out there right now that has something sticky on their shoe, take a step back and try and see why it’s there. Now, what are you gonna do about it?
