“Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t.” – Leon Carr, songwriter and composer
Yes, folks, it can be that simple. Yes, I know that every darn morning your brain is assaulted with a barrage of decisions –some tedious, some time-sensitive- but all begging your attention. And, with society’s bigger-better-faster demands and endless opportunities, things ain’t going to change any time soon. But too many times, you morph this molehill of line items into a mountain of challenge-filled chores. An elementary choice of “A” or “B” becomes buried beneath self-obligation to research options, check trend forecasts, reference social circles and even (dare I say?!) ask Mom! And when you step back to note that all this nonsensical nerve-wracking is over things as unimportant as cereal selections and suitcase packing… it’s painfully funny, right? Well, folks, don’t make things more complicated than they intrinsically are! Ask yourself what sounds good, feels right, or just suits your mood. Trust your gut, check off the list, and get on with the REAL business at hand… actually enjoying the life you are choosing.
