Backsliding, It's Not Easy Being Green

I confess. I hit a slick patch on my journey of happiness and I slid. Backslid, actually. I realize I not immune to backsliding but thought I had finally found myself on sure footing. My slip was not a slight slip of the foot, it was more like a tumble down a flight a stairs. Now I find myself thinking about my decisions and if they truly are good, solid decisions.

I know this post will sound vague and that makes sense because I meant for it to be vague. In my present state of mind I am not ready to make heads or tails of it. What I do know, what I thought I knew, slipped out from underneath me yesterday in a few long conversations that made no sense. Well, actually they did make sense but gave no clear resolutions.

The conversations left me feeling a little blue today, well maybe it was better stated that It's Not Easy Being Green. If you have been following me long enough you remember my fondness for great children's music and soundtracks. He says it better than I ever could...


  1. Pick yourself up dust yourself off and start all over again!

    We all move several steps forward and several steps is how life is. We have the greatest of joys and the lowest of sorrows. We grow, we celebrate, we reflect and discern and we continue to love.

    Feel what you feel. Know that you are loved and cared for. I am cheering you on!

    I am cheering you on!

  2. we all make mistakes. welcome to the club. just put one foot in front of the other and keep it moving

  3. Lovebabz,
    Thank you for the support. Sometimes when we just know we have it all figured out, life throws you a curve ball.

    I am slowly putting one foot in front of the other and learning to bounce back.
