Do something Friday

Feast or Famine  --have you ever stopped to think about how many situations in life this applies to?  Beyond the obvious eating, it seems like this is the way life goes...

Car's running great and then....4 or 5 repairs need to happen all in a row.

Things at work are settled and groovin' smoothly and then.....7 new projects come in and everyone is now crazy.

I don't want to sound negative about the feast times -- they are definitely a blessing -- but they are always followed by some kind of famine.

Famine is the time when we readjust, when we work really hard, when we make difficult choices and changes -- whether you love it or hate it, you know it's coming and we're going to have to deal with it in some way.

The big question is:  How are you going to handle?  With grace and acceptance that this is the way the world works?  OR....kicking and screaming because life is so unfair?

The thing about kicking and screaming is it takes a lot of energy and doesn't get you where you need to go.  Acceptance and grace don't have quite the dramatic flare -- but in the long run, require less energy and are actually productive.
