February 2020 is over.In just a few days we’ll set our clocks back an hour so the early commuters can more easily avoid critters and early joggers on the road. Time does seem to drag this time of year. But when you’re down, there’s nothing like the wistful wisdom of a baseball icon/keen observer of life to make you laugh it off. That’s why I loaded this blog with some of Yogi Berra’s best Yogi-isms.*
Ever wish you could autocorrect some of the world’s biggest blunders? Imagine how great the world would be if…...nah. If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be.
You can observe a lot by watching. Look around. What do YOU want to do? Take a trip? Build a deck? Move to Alaska? Read War and Peace? Clear out the attic? You should see my list. But I WILL scratch everything off it. Otherwise next February it’s déjà vu all over again.
February has always been the month for challenging decisions for me. It can be difficult and stressful. Should I make this change? Should you? Only you can decide that. Follow your heart. Don’t always follow the crowd. Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded. When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Remember that whatever you do in life, 90% of it is half mental. Most of all, never give up, because it ain’t over ‘til it’s over.
Thanks, Yogi. Okay, gray skies or not, I’m ready for March. How about you?
*If you’ve never heard of Yogi Berra, it’s worth looking him up. I can’t possibly do this heroic character justice.
