"Oh, she said, but I'm getting so far behind."
There was the self-imposed deadline, several months back, supposed to have been a slam dunk. Preparations for an unforeseen opportunity. Information gleaned, internally filed. Tech changes and glitches that despite best efforts, dragged to a workaround halt.
Hours. Weeks gone by.
Check up, somehow remembered despite not being written down. Surgery. Family.
Then the words:
"Life is like a wild tiger. You can either lie down and let it
Lay its paw on your head –
Or sit on its back and ride it."
R I D E T H E W I L D T I G E R
You're right where you're supposed to be.
Take this one day. Look for the joy.
And Ride It.
