When Things Go Pear Shaped...

When Things Go Pear Shaped...
 Things going pear shaped...    Mama said that there would be days like this. No matter how hard you try or what you do, things are just going to go pear shaped.   

     No, it's not necessarily your fault that the day went the way it did, it just seems as if the gods had other plans and nothing you did would change the hand of destiny. Like pawns in a chess game, the god, sitting in their lofty positions somewhere in the heavens, push, manipulate or mess with our puny mortal minds.  
     We get mad because things are not going our way. Frustrated, because nothing we do seems to work. We shake our fists, flip our fingers, and curse the gods but to no avail. We are human, they aren't and they know what we want.
     Sooner or later, after they have had a good laugh at our expense, all is fine. They snap their fingers and the rain begins to fall once again.

Michael.....But I am so glad that I can comment now!  Pear-shaped days happen all the time everywhere!  I actually just ate a pear and it was Yummy!  And, even tho' I couldn't see anything this morning on AR, I love the new Social Integration deal....  Have a great evening!

And Michael, I don't know about you, but PEAR-SHAPED doesn't look good on most people! I'm glad that you can rise above it, shake it off and allow the rain to cleanse it!

I had problems with ActiveRain yesterday and this morning I had difficulty gaining access.  I hope they are working on the servers.

 Blooming for you!

Sometimes things go right and sometimes things go wrong. You have to learn to go with the flow when things are beyond your control. Frustrating but true! Yesterday I was frustrated!

Michael, I learned when I was young... "don't sweat the small stuff"... the issue is realizing what is "small"
