It's the hard knock life, for us
It's the hard knock life, for us!
'Steada treated, we get tricked,
'Steada kisses we get kicked
It's the hard-knock life!
Well, we could continue with that attitude, woe is me, take abuses in stride, take a slap with a smile, and say "We looooooove you, Miss Hannigan!"
We COULD. However...while life has never been easy for me... I can't let myself just lay down. I am far better than that, and prefer to keep a smile on while working to improve. I do not just "muddle through", I like to do something about things. Even if something isn't solved quite the way I intended (last month was a dance with that) it generally gets evened out. And why should I be gloomy and morose? I have a lot to live for! I have looked death, pain, fear, in the eye and said "Screw you!" My motto for life appears to be "Screw you, yes I can!"
I cannot change anyone, but myself. It is me I have a responsibility to and for. It is my reactions to life that I can control. G. says: "We cannot control what happens to us, but we CAN control what we do about it."
I'm going to hold up my head, quit looking over my shoulder, and I am going to be my tough little smart ass self.
And, I am actually grateful for my hard-knock life.
