My life is a huge pickle.

by JimmyPeterson on March 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This 6 word definitely is one of the most descriptive of my life. The reason being is that I am honestly always in a situation that "gets me in a pickle". It could be from the most random stuff some of the most recent are: Car trouble, work, school, and really just everyday choices. Which i guess now that I stop and think about it choices are for sure not a bad thing but it sure is tough to make up my mind! Now I know I’m not the only one who gets in a pickle but truly it is EVERY single day that I am in one. That takes some major skills! I do not want the skills but of course I will always have them. However always being in this situation I can say that it sure does prepare for allot of tough situations I will encounter in my life. It also is building me up to be a better person to work through things and manage to pull through and find away on my own. Not every time do they end bad there are some tomes that I am in a huge pickle and not only do I end up with that problem solved but also I come out ahead of where I started and moving forward. I will admit though that is sure is tough to be having so much of these "pickles" in my life but i have just accepted it and realized that there will always be stuff i will have to work through in my life. I feel like it builds maturity and I believe it shows when you just accept something and know you are going to have to be on your toes working but it’s what you have to do to get the job done and move forward with your lives.
