Perhaps we all try for balance consciously or not. That’s what I attempt to achieve during my days. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
Yes, I always use a neck strap. This time the camera flew from my hand before it ever reached to my neck. Last time, the neck strap snapped. My hands are obviously out of whack, and I need to rethink how I remove the camera from its bag and how I put it on. Rethinking things is balance.
Himself is in balance these days. He was told he is one of the top two employees in the country. They made a company-wide video congratulating him, sent him a giant bonus…this from the company that sent out $25 bucks the first year, and he even got phone calls beginning, “Hello, Mr. Geezer…”
For a moment he thought he would be fired. Don’t those calls always start like that? Instead the bonus. He’s very pleased, and I am very pleased for him.
Everyday we are grateful that he has a job….that he likes his job. For this I am even more grateful. We see and read of other’s in middle age now laid off and unable to find jobs at all, and we are very, very grateful. I often have thank you moments throughout my day when I catch myself stilled in a moment and filled with gratitude.
Last night, the Geezer grew impatient with the slow start of my computer, and he crashed it. Pushed that button. Kapow. This morning, he discovered that my computer doesn’t like being crashed during start up. Even the system restore wouldn’t work. None of the virus protection worked. Nothing was quite where it thought it aught to be. I’m back now, in business, but while I am off to work today, I’ll run a full system scan. Perhaps deep into system tools, I will dust and wax when I get home too.
Yin and Yang….balance.
