The last few weeks have been very busy for me. That can be a good thing or it can be bad. Good, in the fact that business is growing--bad in the sense that I've had very little time to even breathe. And I like to breathe. It's necessary.
That's the way life is, isn't it? The pace varies, but it's just life. It goes on. Even when we survive that which did not kill us, life goes on. Even when we have those golden moments with our family we wish would last forever, life goes on. That's the beat of life. It survives, it expands, it continues, sometimes in the midst of great adversity. It is designed that way.
When life hits us with unexpected outcomes, it helps to put things in perspective. Life will always be just life. No more, no less. No great revelation here. Just life, doing what life does. My philosophy is this: I may not know what's going to happen in this crazy thing we call life, but I can do two things; 1) I can live it fully, embracing it without regrets and 2) prepare for the contingencies I can control. These two things keep me going on those days when life seems to grab me by the ankles and pull me under. I am living as joyfully as I know how (and don't misunderstand...I do have bad days...had one yesterday, as.a matter of fact...I just don't let those day define me), and I am prepared for the worse as best I can. I would encourage everyone else to do the same. Because at the end of the day or at the end of our lives, it's just life. It's gonna smack us a time or two, or else we haven't really lived.
I would also encourage you if you need help preparing, call the office, or my cell, if you have it. I've been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. I don't really know why this was on my mind this morning. Too much introspection, I guess. I just want everyone to know that feeling overwhelmed is a normal reaction to life. This, too, will pass, because that's life.
