I read these three sentences and they will not let me go. I put them in a Word doc and I keep it open on my computer where I spend most of my time when I’m not in session. I place them here so you too can think on these wise and wonderful things.
The Basis of life is freedom.
The Purpose of life is joy.
The Result of life is growth.
I don’t think it could be any clearer. I’m not kidding.
My sweetie had a small mishap with a dog and the car severing the left wing mirror from the door.
We had it fixed by a really good guy, but it was expensive.
We picked up the car, happy as larks.
A little over a week later, I was on my way to work when I clipped a garbage truck too closely and severed the right wing mirror from the door!
Shaken but fine, I stopped and wrapped a bungee cord around the mirror so I wouldn’t lose it on the way to work.
As I did, the message came through loud and clear:
Don’t look back!
I picked the car up this morning with another new wing mirror.
Monday was an unexpected day off for me. I read Seth Godin’s The Icarus Deception, talked on the phone with dear friends, meditated over my ongoing jigsaw puzzle, and decided to use flowers for my blog post today.
