Oddly, being insanely busy makes me philosophical. Yesterday, while finally starting the taxes, I was pondering the concept of enough. You know… having enough. Being enough. Contentment, satisfaction with where you’re at… ??
Then a friend sent me this link this morning. I wish I could guffaw and just find it humorous, but it speaks to me. I love the notion that we are evaluated solely on our merits, but the problem is, everyone defines that a little differently. I happen to really admire spunk, so I’m hoping someone else does too and that high school senior ends up at a good school where her sass can be appreciated and cultivated so she’s prepared to be a highly successful adult, however she might define that.
So how do you cope when life isn’t fair? Let’s face it… especially as adults, we often need to play the connections game, like it or not. When you’re caught in the hamster wheel and spinning like a top, what do you do to hold on?
I grab the fur-girls and head for the trails. First of all, it’s impossible to be stressed and/or cranky when Sissy wants to run. Look at that happy girl! Secondly, there are countless studies that show that exercise reduces stress… it really does.
What works for you?
