How to cope--show up
Who said, “Ninety percent of life is showing up.”
“Keep on trucking.” (Thanks, Mr Natural)
Keep on keeping on.
You’re either on the bus or off the bus (Thanks, Ken Kesey). On is better.
Suit up. Get dressed. Do something each day you never did before. Create new brain pathways. Go to a weird website. Find a wacky blog (besides this one—http://blogsearch.google.com). Drive a different route to work. Brush your teeth standing on one leg.
One of my favorite quotes is “To burn always with that hard, gemlike flame is to be a success in life.”
Even if you’re down to a pilot light, you can flare. Just show up.
That’s Mr Natural in the pix. You know another of his sayings… “Always get the right tool for the job.”
I swear half the problems in this world come from not doing that.
