Wow, it’s been a rough couple of days. In particular yesterday after getting the news about the one and only car, my stress level rocketed straight into high orbit. Other family members’ interpersonal issues and stresses intersected, and the result was quite unpleasant, to say the least. So before going to sleep last night I prayed for some guidance; and some direction to get back on a positive road. Some kind of message….
This morning, I logged onto my blog site and there it was. In the form of a comment from my friend Oscar “The Hermit”. He’d commented my post from a day or two ago “Young at Heart”. The whole comment was great, but two words stood out to me: “Keep moving“, he said. The light-bulb went on – so if you’re living in the Northeast and things suddenly became brighter about 15 minutes ago, that was me-and you’re welcome!
Keep moving…. it’s the only choice. If I stand still like a deer in the headlights I will get run over. I can move physically, get some stuff done, go for a walk, – all of which will benefit and distract me. I can move creatively, do some writing, take some pictures – both will soothe me and boost my self-esteem. I can get going intellectually and read a good book, engage in meaningful conversation with someone. I can just get moving on my to do list and instead of freezing up and stressing – figure out what needs to be done then do it. And I can (and should) get moving spiritually – because I just got a great message that I should show some gratitude for. Spiritually, I should also apologize for my role in the FUBAR known as yesterday. I can do this if only because I have no alternatives. I gotta keep moving.
