Good Morning, God!
Here I am back in Tucson AND I did another 2 mile “mostly” jog yesterday morning with Sandy. That’s my 7th jog since the trip began early on May 8th — 13 days ago.
Two miles isn’t much. But, it is a Step in the Right Direction. And, I’m pleased, God.
Pleased, but “aware” that I am great at starting . . . and less good at sticking to things. So, that’s why I was so pleased to find the book Tweak It at my daughter Sandy’s neighborhood library.
It’s all about using small “tweaks” to create a better “fit” between Work and Life. The author, Cali Yost said that she changed the word “balance” to “fit” because the CEOs she talked to thought “balance” meant less work.
Apparently, God, some folks are naturals at knowing what they want and then feeling comfortable about arranging things to get it. One of the best sections was about how these naturals are totally unaware that most of us are clueless.
Hmm. Now that I stop and ponder what I just said, God, I realize that the key idea here for me is not so much the idea of seeing my life as tweakable — but rather 1) knowing what I really want and then 2) feeling comfortable about arranging things so as to get what I want.
It reminds me of the time in First Grade when the teacher assigned us One Wish and to come back and share our wish the next day. My wish (with the help of my Mother) was for World Peace. After all had shared the teacher informed us that we could have wished for More Wishes.
Sigh. I didn’t get it then. I barely get it now. Could it be, God, that we live in a World of Abundance? A World in which we get more than One Wish? A 360 degree World?
