Victory Lap


You know what we don’t do enough of on the blog?


This one from our dear contributor, Caroline, feels particularly apropos for a week that involved (for me anyway) lots of long hours, late-night ice cream dinners, and several days of soggy shoes.

It is so much easier to focus on what we DON’T get done at the end of the day than all that we DO get done.  But as you go into the long weekend, choose to feel good about all those check marks on your to do list, instead of defeated by the new additions.

You deserve a lopsided victory lap – and not just because your right leg is noticeably longer than your left leg – but because you will be carrying all the gold medals and trophies you can steal from the local party store.

Go home tonight knowing that you really did accomplish something because, it’s true.  Where there was nothing before, now there’s you and all that you created.

Thank you, Caroline, for the inspiration!

Limerick: Caroline would dearly love to return to Somalia, where she spent carefree childhood hours trying to keep poisonous snakes out of her clothing.  As a trip there is not really a go at the moment, she consoles herself by observing (and enjoying) the sweet absurdity of human life.
