Doing something right

Do you ever have one of those weeks when everything you say and do seems wrong?  That has been the past seven or eight days for me.  I'm feeling bruised, inadequate and cranky, and all with good reason.   This week has kicked my butt.

Of course, in the midst of all of that negativity, there is a bright spot: a friend sent me a message on Facebook yesterday.  The very late birthday present I gave to her daughter last weekend is a hit.  Both mother and daughter had fun with it and the school day was more exciting because of temporarily purple hair.  I am relieved that I got something right.

The lesson I see in all of this is that it's not possible to get everything wrong.  Something, even if it's a small something, goes right, but that tends to be overshadowed by the negativity. Unless of course you celebrate your victory rather lamenting your losses.
