No Axe to Grind
This past weekend, I bypassed the plans I had -- writing -- to do something my wife wanted me to do -- hang drywall, all weekend long [frown]. I guess I am happy that she is happy, so it’s all good. Anyway, while working, I was watching/listening to the first season of “Good Times” on DVD and I realized that in many ways, we are fighting the same societal ills (high fuel prices, low wages, deficiencies in the education system, crooked political system, crooked preachers, etc.). So, that got me to thinking. Instead of my being in this mode of “fight, fight, fight”, I think I want to take a break and just be happy for a while. Be happy for what I have. Be happy for my family, be happy for my health, and be happy for just the sake of being happy. For a moment I’m going to take my eyes off “the man” (just a side note: if you really pay attention you will find that he has no color) and just enjoy life. I’m not saying I’m going to live in denial, I’m just going to live life from a position of gratitude. So, what are you thankful/happy for?
