Sometimes I feel like I've become too accustomed to the speaker that comes after the president, telling us what we just heard. And I expect Cliff Notes, or the book club discussion section, to lead me to insights about what I just read. And I find myself waiting for friends and relatives, not to mention all the opinion jocks in the paper and on TV, to tell me what I just saw or the meaning of what I just experienced. Sometimes I wonder if I've forgotten to think for myself.
As I help to raise two granddaughters, there are valuable life lessons right in front of me, but I'm just so caught up in the minutiae that I often miss them. There is merit in putting one foot in front of the other, getting the next meal on the table, the next load of laundry in, the next boo-boo bandaged, the last page of homework checked.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this. Guess I need to THINK about it------ perhaps some new personal challenges, perhaps fitness related, or maybe not.
