I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said, "Manure happens." That’s not exactly what it said, but it is close. Manure represents all the things that happen to us that are painful and unpleasant.
What do you do when life manures on you? You can’t bury it. It doesn’t decompose unless it is exposed to oxygen.
You can burn it, but I don’t recommend it. It requires chemicals, and it produces a very unpleasant odor.
When life manures on us, most of us try to bury it through denial, or burn it with chemicals like alcohol and drugs.
There is an alternative. You can compost your manure. You can mix it with other things like positive life experiences, process it regularly, and it becomes fertilizer.
When life manures on you, turn it into fertilizer.
