Knocked Down, But Never Knocked Out

Hi all,

I've been thru a very upsetting days last week.. Few things didn't went well the way I've planned. I was also unfortunatelly met people who are really a total jerk. And even when I was going to release all my stressing days with shopping, I met with this quite a b*tch salesperson! Hrrrgh! Plus, I received  my first critics and judgment toward my fashion attempt. Well, on that case, I admit I was down for a while, a bit sad maybe, yes. But then I'm so grateful that I know what's to improve. :) While on that 'other messed up things', my ears will just going red if I remember them. :(

Then now, I just remember what's my pastor been said of how we can be knocked down often in life, but with faith we can never be knocked out. There are so many upsetting things happens every day at the time we're least expected. But for 22 years I've lived, I learned and keep remembering that bothering a single upsetting thing to ruin my entire day, or even my entire decision over something is just stupid and regretfull. I'm (actually still) learning to listen and just walk away. Listen (advices, critics, etc) to improve, and walk away to show that I'll never leave the 'game', even though I just being knocked down. :)

I know each of us might deal with such, or even bigger, upsetting things in life. I think it's wise to just face it and fight back by not giving up. :)) Oh I just remember great quotes from a scene of my fave old movie, Kit Kittridge:An American Girl :

" Don't let it beat you, Kit. You know, when I was about 14...my dad traded some old farm equipment for a used Model t. One time I was cranking it, to start it...and the crank broke in half. Car kind of groaned, and it just died right in our front yard. I wanted to junk the darn thing when my dad walked in...and said, "Don't let it beat you, son." Don't let it beat you. Drove it for five more years after that."
Hope this post can cheer you up somehow if you have an upsetting day, just like it does to me when writing this. :)

Oh, almost forgot. About my outfit, I was wearing velvet maxi skirt with my bat-wing long sleeves polka top. I just get the open-toe clogs last week. Fyi I've been ordering the clogs for three full months!! :( I ordered and pay them full on 3rd November 2010, and they finnaly arrived at my house on 18th Jan 2011. Thank God it looks nice on my feet so I'm not dissapointed much.What do you guys think? :)
