As I woke up one morning last week, I could hear the gurgling and bubbling of water.
No worries, I thought to myself, it’s just my husband taking a shower before work.
As my husband stepped out of the shower, he stepped into a half inch of water in our downstairs bathroom.
“We have a problem.” I heard him say.
Luckily I have a couple of handyman’s in the family, and my husband and son-in-law grabbed the auger and went to work. After a few attempts, they were able to remove the clog, and our water problems were over.
Sitting here this morning I am thankful our issues weren’t more severe, but I find myself wishing there was an easy way to clear the garbage that at times clog our lives.
One Moment At A Time
I know many are facing stressful times. Sometimes life has a way of taking the joys we experience during our day and obstructs our perspective. We see the glass half empty, and we look so far ahead seeing only obstacles and obstructions, which sometimes limits us in the right now.

We see the glass half empty, and we tend to look so far ahead and all we see are obstacles and obstructions in our view.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could find an auger to remove the sadness, self-doubt, fear of failure, and overthinking we go through each day?
Unfortunately, not everything in life is easy. Life much like my clogged drain this morning, requires hard work, dedication and at times, even acceptance.
As 2016 draws to a close, I am jotting down area’s in my life that require some cleaning out.
- I will let go of toxic people and surround myself with those I can lean on during difficult times.
- I will evaluate what is necessary and get rid of what needs to be left behind.
- I will be more helpful and feel less helpless.
- I will concentrate on the good and not beat myself up for my faults.
Here’s to 2017. May we all experience much more love and a lot less hate.
