Thursday Thoughts: Universal Smooth Sailing

I had hopes for this year. Not huge hopes. Yeah, yeah, we’re only in the second week of 2022 but so far, I’m not seeing much change–not in the big picture nor in the little one. The world is still operating on the nutty side. All I can do is shake my head and mutter, “Do you even listen to what comes out of your mouth?” Obviously, their answer would be no. On a smaller scale, Real Life keeps knocking me off balance. Or maybe it’s just me tripping over my own feet. I’m working on that–you know, the whole walking and thinking at the same time thing. Anyway, I need to let it go. And no, I am NOT singing that chorus. Nope. Uh hun. Not me…

In moments of high stress, anxiety, or fluster, Silver, instead of hoping, wondering, or worrying, remember your double-secret resources of skipping, twirling, and humming.

Port out, starboard home –
The Universe

Winking, tilting, and nodding, Silver, may also apply in certain company, and rarely, but oh so rarely, might you dunk, swish, and slurp.

See? The Universe always has the answer. I’m not going to let the stress get to me. I’m not going to get anxious or flustered. I’ll do what I can when I can and let the rest go. Pardon me, I’m off to skip, twirl, and hum. But not that song. Nope…

  1. Lucky for me, I have been fortunate enough to have never heard that song – although I know to which one you are referring. Bwa ha ha, avoided the ear worm. Neener neener boo boo. =op

    Yep, do what you can and let the rest of it go. If only it were as easy as it sounds. I try to let it go, but sometimes, the stupid… it burns… and I let myself get all spastic about it. Also lucky for me, my brain doesn’t let me hold onto to certain things too long (other things it holds forever… silly brain). I just have to distract it.. LOOK, a shiny!

      “Squirrel!” Yup. That helps. And shinies are sooo pretty! And yeah, I’m finally in the headspace where I can just skip away…or twirl…and let it go. Just call me Elsa! 😉
