Time to Get Up

Have you ever seen that sometimes our lives don’t go the way we think they will? Sometimes our lives look to be scattered pieces just thrown around on the floor, on the furniture, and sometimes on the walls. We all see this from time to time, and that is OK. Because it doesn’t have to stay that way. We can do something about it. After all, we are the only ones able to do so. It is our life.

There is a song dating back to the earlier half of the 20th century that I always remember when I have to do this. It’s called Pick Yourself Up, and the lyrics go:

‘Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.’

I often find myself picking up in piling various parts of my life. This usually happens when I have tried to do something, and for one reason or another, It fell apart. Even though that is not fun, it does happen. And when it happens, we need to address it.

Have you ever had a journey in your life that fell apart?  If so, what did you do to pick up the pieces and try again?  If not, do you have a game plan that helps you see problems before they happen, and how would you handle issues that do appear?

If you have faced problems like this, sharing will help everyone.  Please feel welcome to use this blog as a platform to share in the comments.  If we work together, we all benefit.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
