Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Monday Thoughts: S**t Happens


Everything seems to be going along fine in your day/life, when all of a sudden you’re thrown for a loop. The all too popular unexpected twist.

You find yourself smack in the middle of a situation you didn’t create. The initial reaction might be to have a meltdown or go into an end of the world rage (depending on the situation) or you start singing que sera sera (what ever will be, will be) and say “whatever!” Sometimes, I opt for the third option but since I can’t sing… oh well, you can only imagine.

Believe me, it takes a lot for me to reach meltdown status and I don’t mean the panicky kind. Recently I experienced some incidents at work and personal that sent me into nuclear mode (which I do not recommend if you can avoid it). This wasn’t the quick blow over, it had a lingering effect which had me questioning the surrounding world’s sanity and of course I had to perform a little inner psychiatric evalutation (I think I passed… I think).  Once I reverted back to the calm and patient guy, I began to take it all in stride and regained my understanding that s**t happens and it’s not the end of the world. In those moments it’s just an instinctive reaction but we have to let cooler heads prevail. Life is life and it doesn’t present itself as an easy going plan. Sometimes all the wisdom, philosophy, inspiration, spirituality, new age, whatever gets you through thoughts do not work and you just roll with the punches or sing….

  1. I hope all is sorted now for you Brother! Que Sera sera indeed!

  2. Well said. Still sorry for your hassles though.

  3. It sounds as if you’ve done a good job of talking yourself through. So sorry it has happened, but I think these things happen to all of us. My idea is that ever once in awhile Satan sees and opening and pours it on, but if you remember God tells us that it’s never going to be more than you can bear, and in the process you learn that you are stronger than you thought and you’ve been strengthened again. I believe in your strength…you couldn’t write the spiritual poetry your heart speaks so beautifully without a strong faith. Hang in there, brother!

    • Thank you, Marie! Satan will not let up and do anything and everything possible to distract us and take our eyes off God. Our God is above all things and will always carry us through. Thank you so much for your encouraging words 😊

  4. If you can’t sing it you can hum it 🙂 . Just kidding. I’ve known some pretty bad days at the office too. Perhaps the key resides in remembering that work does not define us. It seems hard to focus on that while we are going through the situation but ultimately it should work. Kudos on keeping your cool

    • Thank you, Geetha and believe me, I was humming a bit. You’re right, work does not define us, it’s all about the attitude we choose to carry each day. 😊

  5. I hope everything worked itself out! A great post Syl! It is so true sometimes what can you do? x

  6. Your faith and unswerving determination give us inspiration to tackle all obstacles. Thinking of you! 🙂
