I stood under the street lamp with three bulbs watching the World go by and probably wouldn’t have paid much mind to it except when one of the bulbs started blinking and sizzling, now that caught my interest. I wonder what spooked the light 😉

I was taking a snapshot of the fire hydrant for my Mundane Monday when the cyclist came whizzing past and bombed my photo shoot 🙂

Looking at this shrub that jutted proudly and stubbornly out of the half cemented, sandy patch brought a lot of thoughts to my mind in relation to human life and I’ll share a few:

My mother always says that “when the beat to the dance changes, you change your rhythm or you are out.”

When life gets uncomfortable one just doesn’t give up, but they look for other ways of turning the discomfort into a comfort zone. That’s the only way to survive, for surely harsh times will come, but might not endure.

When others are planting shallow roots, take the extra time to make yours several inches deeper, because a strong foundation withstands more turbulence.

Sometimes, when our circumstances change, we should take our eyes away from the immediate picture that doesn’t look too bright and focus on the strength within as well as the bigger picture ahead of us. Like is said back home “that food that is hot right now, will eventually cool down, for no condition is permanent.”

It’s amazing how a small, jutting proud piece of grass made me philosophical, but what is the alternative to standing one’s ground?

Giving up?

That’s not an option!

Have a great week.
