...inspired by Staples' Easy Button,
this button is more my style. Never one to take the easy way out, that button would be for nothing but sheer convenience. It would bring out the sloth in me, and quite possibly any negative trait that would come along with always having things done the -easy- way. From childhood, I've followed example, and disciplined myself to work through difficulties. Take for one, I remember taking home my 'indoor' shoes from school in a plastic bag. Rather than tying it off in a bow, I inadvertantly made a knot-- and a pretty good one, at that! I got home and asked my dad to help me un-do it... getting flustered with my own frustration, I ran to get scissors so that I could cut my shoes free (Easy Button). Then, my dad stopped me in my tracks. He told me for one, that I would waste a plastic bag, that would thereafter be completely useless, and two, I wouldn't learn. I didn't understand...learn what? I knew how to undo knots, I knew how to make them... then I saw what he meant. He wanted me to work through the knot, bit by bit. By following this simple direction, I've learned to live my life that way. Bit by bit, I'll work my way through it. Bit my bit, it'll come. No rush, just focus, concentration and determination-- (rewind back to that 7yo me, and *poof! My shoes were free) And so am I. I'm free to do my own thing. To busy my life with work, school, volunteer, family, boyfriend & friends-- all that jazz. I'm free to occupy my time as I like, as that's what life is. But life comes with difficulties, and imperfections- that we all must endure. In sum, I've never been one to push that Easy Button... that is why I'm gonna take the next 4 days (Canada *Long Weekend) in stride. Although I do have some planning to do, I'm gonna press that button and say 'DEAL'! I need to relax, take some time to unwind and re-energize for Learna SC!!
