How do you DEAL?

Turning the corner is an idiom meaning to pass a critical point in a process. For example: a patient passes from a critical state to fair status; a new coach leads a football team from losing to having a #1 season; and most importantly–turning points in a person’s life path.

There have been many turning the corners or points of interest so far on my journey: graduating from higher education; marriage and the ensuing adjustment to living with someone twenty-four, seven; children who changed my priorities and outlook toward life—forever; my eldest son’s battle with cancer; my first book contract; and more recently my father’s crippling brain injury and subsequent memory loss.

Unlike the fictional character Forrest Gump’s philosophy that life is like a box of chocolates, my life resembles the Steel Twang (Indiana Beach) with peaks and valleys, exhilarations and gut-wrenching fear.

The highs are positive healthy rewarding events and I want more!The lows, the fears all of us deal with when the bumps are upon us, are necessary in order to progress through life, to GROW, and to BALANCE the bad with the good.My method of dealing: Analyze research, think again and make the experience a positive.Most of all I rely on my husband, sons and friends for support and encouragement. Life if good when you have others to share the rush at the top and the fear when heading down, especially the sadness when the journey ends.

I’m interested in you. What is your philosophy: a box of chocolates or a roller coaster?
How do you deal with life events?
