I look over all the brief headlines as I surf the net, like busting bone loss myths, monkey boy hides out in Mexico, etc. Will our lives be influenced by an endless amount of sound bites? Should we abbreviate and edit so much out of our lives to compartmentalize them into neat little piles? Are we leaving behind so much more of the story of who we are because we are all strapped for time?
Sometimes I need to take time just for myself to find the calm again; beyond all of the typical overwhelming noise, and all of the things I plan to do for the rest of the day. Plan your life but leave room for the unexpected. Stay flexible enough to breathe during scary times and face them head-on. Life is too short to avoid all of the unsure things that arise. If you had to describe three categories in your life with a sound bite for each one what would it sound like? Would you be surprised by the outcome? Take a moment and rewrite your own headlines for your life on your terms and don’t let others do it for you.
