Daily Dose #52 (07/19/11)


Today has been a day of miscommunication. I try to achieve clarity, but sometimes it feels like I'm speaking English and it's getting interpreted as Chinese.

Is that my personal "crazy"? Or is everybody else crazier than I am, and because I'm more honestly transparent about my personal crazy, it gets used against me?

Who knows? Sometimes, you just have to stop.

I actually have to work today, and be productive in other ways. My best friend is in trouble, and friends come before blogs. So I will leave you with this:

Read the red flags, and when you recognize them, don't try to fix the situation.

Response time is critical.

Just stop as quickly as you can. You don't have to come up with a reciprocal action all the time.

Life is long. You may think that there are only two moves on the chessboard, but don't forget the unseen third option.

You can chose not to play. You can take a breath and recalibrate.

Everything we do effects everything else.

Sponteneity has its place in life, but so does being mindfully aware.
