Sometimes you're the Windshield, Sometimes you're the Bug.

A day when I'm the Bug.....


Dire Straits legend, Mark Knopfler, wrote this beautiful line.

(f you haven't heard of Dire Straits, you have some work to do over the weekend.)


Read it again, “Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug.”


Meaning: sometimes, you see everything so clearly and right in front of you, and sometimes life smacks you in the face and splatters you to bits.


He essentially described life through this beautiful line. And how true!


Good times can be fleeting, but so are bad times. I am a relentless hunter of silver linings, and stubbornly optimistic about the Ups after the Downs - in my career, life, relationships, finances etc.


The last couple of days I've experienced being the bug, but I have only been grateful about my experiences and I'm sure I'll be a windshield soon as I have been in the past!


So, if you've been feeling like a Bug recently, I say chin up. Don't stay there, but don't fight the feeling as well!

This too shall pass!


Wait to be the windshield and soak in the moment when it comes!


Stay well.


I'll leave you here, with this beautifully written Life Mantra.


Well it's a strange old game - you learn it slow 
One step forward and it's back to go
You're standing on the throttle 
You're standing on the brakes 
In the groove 'til you make a mistake 
Sometimes you're the windshield 
Sometimes you're the bug 
Sometimes it all comes together baby 
Sometimes you're a fool in love 
Sometimes you're the louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you're the ball 
Sometimes it all comes together baby 
Sometimes you're going lose it all 

You gotta know happy - you gotta know glad 
Because you're gonna know lonely 
And you're gonna know bad 
When you're rippin' and a ridin' 
And you're coming on strong 
You start slippin' and slidin' 
And it all goes wrong because 
Sometimes you're the windshield 
Sometimes you're the bug 
Sometimes it all comes together baby 
Sometimes you're a fool in love 
Sometimes you're the louisville slugger baby 
Sometimes you're the ball 
Sometimes it all comes together baby 
Sometimes you're going lose it all 

One day you got the glory 
One day you got none 
One day you're a diamond 
And then you're a stone 
Everything can change in the blink of an eye 
So let the good times roll 
Before we say goodbye, because 
Sometimes you're the windshield 
Sometimes you're the bug 
Sometimes it all comes together baby 
Sometimes you're a fool in love 
Sometimes you're the louisville slugger baby 
Sometimes you're the ball 
Sometimes it all comes together baby 
Sometimes you're going lose it all
