peering out from life
to say hello
So I’m nailing it at life; there’s a lot going on during this run-up to the Summer Surf Adventure, but I’m doing my best to keep it all copacetic while accepting some small losses. Half of an attendance point at work for a day that I won’t have enough PTO to cover — small beans. A change in Mme. Ross’ daycare roster that affects household income . . . not so small, but hey — it’s just a detail. One marvelous thing about life is that it keeps you on your toes, and demands with fisted collars that we rise to meet our fates with chins up and hearts strong.
But I do have an issue with sudden changes; I need time to adjust to them, because every unexpected change makes me doubt the viability of a road trip to the Pacific; staying at a nice hotel in Seaside, Oregon; and learning to surf.
And then I say: “breathe, Rob. You can do this. You’re American, which means you can borrow, lie, seize, and conquer your way to the ocean. That’s where the next answer lies.
Go live your adventure.”
