I have a new computer. I am getting accustomed to it slowly but surely. There are things I like way better about my old one. It’s more comfortable. I like comfortable. I’m more comfortable with familiar. I suppose I’m in good company with that one.
I must say, however, that getting out of the zone is actually quite refreshing. I’ve been stepping outside of the confines of my self-imposed walls lately, and I think I like it. I’m really not sure where all of this is leading, these new doors I am inching my way through, but I’m okay with that too.
I came across a quote recently by Albert Einstein. “Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.” So very true.
My son’s basketball season is coming to an end. Tomorrow is the last away game of the regular season, and Friday the last home game. As much as I disliked the whole thing at the beginning of the season (see Doing the Hard Thing) I will miss it a lot. It was a growing experience indeed. Plus, I really enjoyed watching my son play. Turns out, he’s a really good ball handler, but he’s not sure he wants to play next year because of the time commiment. And I’m trying to talk him into staying with it!
I am ending with another quote I came across recently. Forgive me if I’ve included these in recent posts, and I’m almost sure I have, or did I Tweet them…whatever the case may be, Jacques Cousteau said: “Every morning I wake up saying I’m still alive, a miracle. And so I keep on pushing.”
I’m right there with you, Jacques, and that in itself is a miracle as well.
