I have really been feeling down this past while. I have always worked at, struggled to maintain a positive attitude. Attitude carries you a long way in this world and helps make the journey a lot easier even more enjoyable while it is carrying you along.

I find if I can come up with a physical comparable it helps me to understand it. Now I certainly am not trying to compare myself to an Olympic athlete but maybe it illustrates my point.  An athlete trains preparing him/herself to peak physically and emotionally be in their zone at the time of the games. The date of the games arrives and they are ready only to be told, the games have been postponed, for an uncertain amount of time, but that they should keep themselves peeked indefinitely. How long would they be able to do that? I know a silly comparable.

I like being in “the zone”, it is peaceful, relaxed and I am content. Outside influences roll by me, off me like water off a ducks back, just not being important. I am just easy going, relaxed and go with the flow. Maybe, with years more work I could reach the point where nothing is important to me and so nothing would get to me. Obviously I am not there yet. There are things that are important to me!! Healthy boundaries are important. Easy going and relaxed does not translate to door mat.

I think it all started really back in May or June. That is when the 4 contractors disagreed about my upcoming treatment. Two favoring immediate business close down, two favoring doing nothing at all. That dragged on for 3 or 4 months. The not knowing what to be prepared for was for me difficult as there were and are serious consequences either way.

I think I was stressing over that when a couple of issues over the summer knocked me right out of the zone. I need to get off my butt and go something about it. Here I am still alive with my business doing fairly good

    I know you have your relationship with whatever higher being exists for you. So I’m going to go out on a limb and share some humour with you:

    I have a choice then–get back into those simple practices and back in center of what’s good and true….or get ready for the rug to get yanked and the tumble to happen.

    You have lots of folks who’ll walk with you.
    But you already know that…..right?

    Apparently I’m okay with a bit off the wobbles. LOL But I dearly dread (though could avoid!) the ‘knocked off my feet and onto my arse’ stuff….and I get miffed at me for letting it happen.
    I also get that loving reminder that it’s irrelevant–get up, get back to basics, and come home.
