Pondering...On Happy Endings...Just Because

 

Yes, it is Sunday.  Later than typical.  For me.   

 

My day for pondering.

 

Truth.   I have been pondering a bit more than usual lately.  I haven’t been avoiding this forum...ActiveRain.  Although I may have been avoiding the reality of life.  Yes.  It happens.   A disappearing act of sorts.  A reality check. On life. And the "stuff" involved in it.   

 

So I ponder.

 

Business. Personal things too.   

 

Life.  In general.  And specifically too.     

 

Just because.  

And for a reason.  

Some know why.  Others...I may eventually tell.  It’s a Michael kinda thing. Sometimes it’s a Mike thing too.   It depends.  Really.  It does.  

 

Pondering is good.  For me.   I’m finally feeling the pondering thing.

A bit later than usual. But that's okay. For me.  

For the soul.  

For the mind.   For moving on.  And moving forward.  And for reflection. Really I believe it.  Truly.

 

Pondering.  Just because.

 

Random thoughts on Happy Endings.   As I am prone to do, I look to others on the subject at hand to gain some insight on the subject.  And today it’s Happy Endings.  

 

If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course,

on where you stop your story.

Orson Welles

 

I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately, you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.

George Clooney

 

Making people laugh is so much more difficult than making them sad. Too much fiction defaults to the somber, the tragic. This is because sad endings are easy in comparison - happy endings aren't at all simple to earn, especially when writing to an audience jaded by them.

Stephen Graham Jones

 

Endings are merely transitions. In a story.  In a sporting event.  Even in a political campaign.  Here’s to beginnings too!  There’s always opportunity. Always.    Peace.  



I didn’t set out to write a somber post...so I will stop here since it seems like it is headed in that direction.   But that’s not my intention.   Positive thoughts.Happy moments.  Good memories.  The very best of times.  

 

Here’s to the week ahead.  To being and doing the best possible.  A feast on Thursday. A day to celebrate. To all that you can be.   You know that warm and fuzzy stuff I’m  not always so good at sharing?  Well pretend I just shared it.  Just because.

We are in control of the story of our life . . . . How our story ends. . . .  When to ends . . . . and when it continues  to make it turn out the way we planned it.

Good luck and success.

Hi Michael, I did a lot of pondering earlier this year. I knew I needed a new idea, new direction or new purpose. After 9 months of thinking, talking to people, collaborating and negotiating, I finally solved it by changing companies and roles and going back into management. That is what I love but I still can work my own business which is what I love too.

Your ponderings make me smile. You've had a busy November so taking a break here and there is perfectly acceptable. I appreciate everything you do here in the Rain.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts Michael. Reflection is a good thing that can be the catalyst to continue the line or to motivate a different direction entirely. Visiting our son, daughter-in-law and Gbaby girl filled me up, so am good to go until next time. Of course, that little Ruger needs to see his Gma! Wishing you the best over the holiday season and beyond.

This is a good time of year to be pondering... as opposed to rabid consuming.  Keep on pondering.
