I was thinking about this because I have been too busy with a family crisis to find the energy to write my blog, work on my memoirs, work on my photo art and so on. Yes, I've been too distracted to dust the house, weed the yard or even walk the dogs at times. But this is just a situation I have no control over. Life has a way of happening and it doesn't pay to get too upset by it. "This too shall pass." I had to look up the origin of this expression which I thought was found in the Bible. It apparently is not. The original is not known according to Google, that source of all knowledge. (Can one be too reliant on Google?) But in any case, it fits here.
So here I am to tell you, it doesn't pay to say you are too anything. Just by writing this blog this morning after a week off tells me so. Perhaps I should adopt another phrase to repeat in my head: Just do it! I hope I don't sound too unrealistic....just unrealistic enough.
