Life is a ride on a ferris wheel…

…and I am currently slap dab at the bottom of the circle. Really, I don’t know how many more things can go wrong.

Almost every aspect of my life is currently low. Everywhere I look everyone is sick; I was just told yesterday that my contract job that was scheduled to end June 30 will instead end January 21; money…well, we won’t talk of money; social time with friends is nonexistent; I received an email today from a reveiwer who told me she “just could not get into” my book; and much, much more.

Don’t get me wrong, I know I have a good life and that many people have it much harder. There are people out there that have horrible things happen to them, and I am thankful that I am not in their position.

It is just that even though one at a time each of the items are just little irritations, they unfortunately didn’t come one at a time. They ganged up on me. They feel huge and overwhelming.

But I will take heart. I have been at the bottom of this old ferris wheel before. I may not be able to see it from this vantage point, but I am sure there are good times ahead.

The best thing about being at the bottom is that there is no way to go but up.

I know, I know, the descent has been scary and painful. But once the nadir is reached I only have the ascent to look forward to.

Up. Up. Up.
