Crossed: (v) to move past
The quality of your life is determined by how quickly you learn the lessons of life.
They happen quickly and after they’re done and the immediate classroom has been shut down, you have to decide whether you believe what you just experienced to be true, or if you thought it was a fluke and next time it might be better.
For a pessimist becomes so negative that he or she won’t even try something new, fearing that all conclusions in Earthly life are doomed.
A pragmatist has favored ideas to pursue, but once those are worn out, he or she is a little bit depleted in hopefulness because there doesn’t seem to be fresh things on the horizon.
An optimist holds to the “bad day” theory.
In other words, there was nothing missing with the plan, nothing wrong with the planners, nothing askew with the organization. It was just poor timing or a little “fritz in the glitz.”
There is another choice, you know:
I tried it; I gave it my best shot. It didn’t work. This is what I learned from it.
If you do this, once you’ve crossed a certain rickety bridge, you don’t ever have to try it again later to see if it’s gotten sturdier. You can trust your instincts, respect your emotions, listen to your spirit, remember the previous encounter in your mind and don’t take your ass anywhere near that defeat.
