As I read other people's stories about PVCs and PACs and how they struggle with them, my heart goes out to them and yet I feel a little guilty. I have PACs and have had quite a few in the last week, but they aren't anything I can't manage. They just make me aware of how important it is to stay hydrated, eat right, and get enough sleep and handle stress in a way that it doesn't feel like the world is ending. Things can be really bad sometimes. The other night I had a very serious thing happen in my family that was devastating but could have been so much more. I love the book, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff." The author adds to that that it is all small stuff. When you're right in the middle of it, it is hard to imagine that you will feel any different but in reality it is only a moment (and some moments are very long). I've had very difficult things happen in my life, things I didn't think I could bear and didn't want to bear and that weren't my fault. But each day brings a new sun with new experiences...a new page in my life. It doesn't do any good to look back at the other pages other than to learn from them. Life is good.
