Kicked In The Butt, But Won't Be Defeated

Even when things go wrong, I must remember how blessed I am. I’m blessed to have a roof over my head. My home is my sanctuary. I’m blessed to have a wonderful husband. My best friend last night was great to talk to as usual. We both always seem to get kicked in the rear and it bothers us and then we let it go. But we both keep on going because that's what we do. We won't be defeated. I will take my own advice and kick the issues in the butt. And remember that I’m blessed even though I might feel defeated sometimes, I am not.

When you feel like you have been kicked in the rear you rise up again and stay that way, be positive alway.

Why do you feel kicked?! It's not a nice situation, even if you are blessed for your house and your husband.

I remember a song from many years ago but not the name, here is a verse " I can fall down but I get up again, nothing will keep me down." that`s what I think about when I fall down :)

You fall down many times but always manage to always get back up.

I try to treat each kick in the pants as a learning experience. Sometimes that's hard to do as it's happening, though.

@TheHorse It is very difficult sometimes. A step back after to regroup is a good thing.

At least you have a good friend that you can share your troubles with. I remember an old saying...when the going gets tough, the tough get going

Sometimes when life hits us in the face it is hard to remember that it could always be worse. God has proven that to me though. We have been homeless with our children a couple times so when I get down I thank God for giving us a safe, warm place to stay. And I remember that we have had it much worse in the past.

@Susan2015 Yes we are blessed with all that God has given us. There are people out there who have no place to lay their precious heads and many will go to bed tonight without food in their bellys. Lord please forgive me when I complain and thank You for all my many blessings. Make me more grateful to Thee O Lord

In this regard, I recall a sticker hanging even when I was working for "Ansaldo Energia", it said, as translated: "When you think that everything is bad, consulates because it could have been worse." I do not know if I made the right idea?
