Wonderful Wednesday-because showing up like a grown up and handling your business is a wonderful thing.
As I get up this morning, I have so very many chores to do and so many responsibilities it is almost overwhelming. I was tempted to stay in bed, under the covers and sleep the day away. However, that is not a realistic choice. The work has to be done. The dishes must be washed, the laundry must be done, the floors must be swept and mopped,the exercise must be done, the reports must be written, the telephone calls must be made and the list goes on. In other words, there are things to be done and I must show up like a grown up and get them done.
It is tempting to put our work off and pretend we don't have things to do, to look for fun things to do. But, when you have responsibilities, when you are responsible for a home, spouse, children, and work, you must show up like a grown up and get things done. For so many people, passing the buck is a way of life. For them life is made up of kicking the can down the road and hoping it never becomes time to do the work. I think those people must be habitually nervous,always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I can't live that way, I want to push my own shoes, I want to control my own destiny. This means, I must show up like a grown up and handle my business.
