Is anyone’s image manager hanging up and not giving all your pictures. It seems like WordPress is running slow and sluggish tonight.
Chattanooga has a small but great zoo that opened its doors to the public for free today. We took advantage of the offer today. It was a great opportunity to get some exercise, some fresh air and to do some Pokemon Go playing. Going to the zoo puts your life in perspective that you share this planet with animals who are just trying to survive too. We enjoyed our time there and will be sure to go back.
Friends, I have been told I am a positive person and that is what people like about me. Here’s a little secret, I am not always a positive person. Some days I have my moments when I am cynical and kind of mad at stuff. Being a genuine person means being genuine about how you feel about things.
There will be times when I will rant and will share some of the negative things brewing in my head. Much of the time I am going to look at the bright side of things but sharing the dark stuff gives some balance and hopefully makes me more relatable to the person who isn’t feeling it today. It’s what you have when you are an idealist like me. Emotions are a strong thing and it requires balance.
Now I have to figure out how to be mad when it comes time to be mad. I am horrible at being mad just like I am horrible at being sick. It’s funny how this all works.

The struggle is very real and so are people. Each one of us goes into the battlefield of life wanting to win the war but we do so after being wounded in body and soul. The people we think of as our comrades can turn on us and become our enemies. We all struggle daily to keep on going and relief and comfort are hard to come by. In the end we have to care for ourselves when others disappoint us. Our hope is the future will bring us friendships that will sustain us for years.
