# Shit happens, no matter how much you prepare, plan, prevent, shit does, and will, happen eventually and you can't outsmart shit.
# Sometimes shit keeps happening for a while, sometimes it feels like shit is never going to stop happening.
# Shit happening can not only wear you down, but erode your faith in everything; yourself, others, humanity, the universe, God, everything.
# If enough shit happens, you will probably want to run away, escape, hide under your doona and sleep the days away, walk in front of a bus.
# If you manage to work through all the stages of shit happening, you will step out from the forest to a place where the sun shines on your face and makes you laugh at knowing there is nothing to do but ride the wave of shit - this is called the Zen of Shit.
# After yet another long day of shit happening you might realise you'd planned to put up the Christmas tree with the kids, but it's almost home-from-school time and the tree and all the decos are still out in the garage, and you might want to just forget about it, but then a little seed inside your heart will erupt and announce itself. It will whisper, 'Life has to go on, and the kids need a happy Christmas more this year than any year before now, so get off your sorry arse and get the tree and forget the shit that has happened and move on!'
# Yes shit happens, but when it happens you just have to scrape it off your shoe and keep walking. Keep walking away from the stench of the shit. Keep your eyes open and try to avoid stepping in more shit, but know that sooner or later shit will happen again, and that you will walk away from that shit, too.
# Adding my favourite Christmas song to photos of my gorgeous boys dressing the Christmas tree makes my heart sing!
The song is Mele Kalikimaka sung by Bing Crosby on his 1949 White Christmas album.
