It’s time for Friday Dance Party here on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
There is a certain mood I get into when I know it is time to go on vacation if only for a day or two. The good news is that I know how to identify it and, weirdly enough, it usually strikes in early August. So guess what: I am pretty sure I’m about 80% into that mood at the present time. You see, I can tell it is happening because I get to this point where I don’t really care about anything. Take for instance, yesterday at work. We had a two-hour meeting where we were told to speak freely and openly. Only you know how your group works and so we want to hear your honest opinions. The only thing was that this wasn’t what they wanted…they had already made up their minds and nothing my colleagues and I were going to say was going to make them change their minds. If I was in a better mood, I would have tried harder to get my point across. I would have worked to make them feel that we knew what they were up to and we had differences of opinion. However, since I’m in my “I need a vacation” mood, I just sat there and thought whatever they said was fine by me. I’d shake my head up and down, mutter “Good point!” every so often and followed up to their questions with “I agree” or “Fine by me”. After the meeting, I tried to count up how many passive answers I gave them and realized I had to say “Fine by me” at least ten times. I need an attitude adjustment! I need a few days off from my life! However, my answer did have one good outcome. It reminded me of this week’s song by Andy Grammer. Guess what it is titled? Yep, ‘Fine By Me’. Some weeks are harder to get through than others, but we did it again. We finished the journey. Give thanks for that and dance a little to celebrate. If you see yourself dancing past some airline ticket counter, make sure and stop and buy me a ticket to some place exotic. I need to get away!!
