It’s Friday folks – and time to Thank Buddha It’s Friday!
At the end of a long week at work, many of us thank the heavens for our temporary weekend liberation. Because we all need a break from the rat race…some “down time.”
And this has been a heck of a week in our country – with the government shutdown and all. Not going all political on you, to me it’s not about who is right or who is wrong…or which side of this debate you fall on. That ultimately doesn’t matter.
What matters is that we, as a country, as a people, can’t seem to get out of our own way. We can’t seem to get past our own agendas, egos and belief systems – which turn us into stone pillars incapable of flexibility. Life is not that way – we have to remain adaptable at every turn…we have to compromise and understand and step down once in a while. We can’t always get “our way.” Children want that – and when they throw their temper tantrums, we punish them, we give them a time-out in order to discourage the behavior. Unfortunately, we, the people, are getting the time-out instead of the lawmakers.
