Embracing Uncertainty - Day 18

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

This week has thrown me like a bucking bronco or a runaway cart - you know that sensation when you are hanging on for dear life knowing you can't escape the crash and fall... ... ...

Picking myself back up, assessing the bruises and damage ... ... ... mostly to the hubris of making and having a plan ... ... ... can you hear the Universe laughing?

Shaking my head to clear the whirling stars ... ... ... huh?... ... uh, what happened? ... ... what day is it?

Time to get back in the saddle and pick up the trail; not much sense in back-tracking to make up what didn't get done (it was all extra, over-the-top items anyway). Can I be OK with the minimum daily requirement? I guess that's the Universe' way of keeping me humble; can't let me think I might actually make progress or have a smidge of control... ... ...

Hope you are smashing all you records! If however, you find yourself tumbled in the weeds I'll give you a hand pulling out the 'stickers', especially the ones you can't reach. Then we'll flip the bird at the Universe and have our own laugh.

Peace and Care

    I know the feeling, SPICY23. It ain't easy being green, as Kermit used to say. Thanks for the acknowledgment on ONEKIDSMOM's blog. I liked your suggestions for her.

    We can all use a little help from our friends when we're stuck. Now that we are back on the trail, let's enjoy our trip into the unknown. Room on the path for us side by side. Let's get comfy with not knowing more than what today brings. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The best laid plans and all that - I am so with you. Plans seem to be made to be smashed by the Universe. Having backups helps, some, sometimes. Best advice is what you did - pick yourself up and get back on the horse (so to speak) and don't fret the small stuff.

    I don't think that it's possible to smash any records until one is consistently engaged in and satisfied with a minimum daily requirement... at least that's how it worked for me.

    I like to say on those kind of days----"This too shall pass" ..... And it generally does. Oh and since I am here I can tell you your day was not a loss because you BRIGHTENED my day with your goodie and kind--encouraging words regarding my blog. ... Seriously, I was moved so just remember---you did something kind for someone. (me) .. emoticon
