I'll Figure Something Out

I always do.

It’s my solution from worrying.

 

Sometimes I throw it out in the open.

It comes back all sorted out.

 

The easy things I can fix quickly.

A running toilet or loose knob is simple.

 

Sorting and organizing are just as easy.

All you really need is a plan to work with and arrange accordingly.

 

My daughter’s friend is devastated from a break up.

It’s been the topic of conversation lately.

 

It’s hard to be a friend to someone who is closed up.

Pain and anger distort one’s perception.

 

My daughter has been asking for help.

"What do I do, mom?”

 

What can you do?

People are not an easy fix.

 

First of all, it’s not our duty to fix them.

We fix ourselves but we don’t fix others.

 

Unless it’s a sprained ankle or a bruise…

Then you can help by lending a hand or give ice for the bump.

 

Not everyone has the skill or know-how to fix themselves.

It’s been tough witnessing my daughter’s friend’s pain.

 

It’s hard to see clearly when one is at the center of the storm.

Looking from the outside, we can suggest all kinds of remedies.

 

But in the end, it’s theirs to fix and not ours.

I hope she figures something out soon.

 

Everyday there’s always things that crop up unexpectedly.

I’m sure I’ll figure something out.

 

I always do.

There used to be a genre that you don't see much anymore - Pascal's Pensees, Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. These pieces of your remind of them somehow.

I always learn something new from you! I looked up the names... I think I'm an old soul....
