You know what we do when things seem a little ragged? We make things work. We figure shit out. We move the puzzle pieces of life around and around until they seem to fit just a little bit better. That’s what we do.
Your husband’s truck dies in the work parking lot? He drives your car and you get rides to and from work from compassionate colleagues.
A friend is looking for a shoulder to cry on? You bail out of some previously scheduled events so you can have time to listen.
A meeting keeps getting pushed back? You take last minute advantage of a rarely found open afternoon to come together with your people so that you can collaborate.
A student is teary-eyed over a particularly rough day? You remind him that tomorrow is a brand new day and that everyone will be happy to see him when he walks in the classroom door.
You’re feeling particularly uninspired to write today’s daily blog? You remind yourself that it can actually get done, just one word at a time.
