Do you remember on that Thursday evening last month when Grumpy turned the tables on me?
(Psst! You can read it here )
Well, I have been on the down low about the state of things with him because truth be told there was nothing mind boggling or eye-opening to share, and that's until now!
For starters, it was my off day and all I was doing was giving a detailed report of what has happened this week and it turns out that the man who always takes me to town on his bicycle was as high as a fiddle today! Yes, he was drunk and the bicycle kept making some MJ moves on the road that it scared me senseless.
So back to Mr. Grumpy- remember the line, "I'm serious about us Arch, what do you want me to do to prove it.Say it and I will do it?"
Twenty days later and my answer was "commit." It was simple, just one word and yet as I said it, I laughed not because it was funny but because I did not expect it of him. It made me think of all the things I have wanted to do but never done simply because I could not commit and follow through on them. It was a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black, and instead of being embarrassed about it or wearing the 'look of shame' all I did was laugh.
So here's the question: have you ever gotten to a point in your life where you wanted to hit the re-do button?
I know there are moments when the undo button is most desired, but cast those aside for a moment and think of three or better yet five moments in your life where if you could have some remote control you could simply hit repeat. I had that today because I finally had an answer for Mr. Grumpy but it's not so much as telling him, but having him prove me wrong that made me want to hit the re-do button.
So, there I was expecting that he'd pause or demand a breather like I did on September 18th, but he smiled and said, "I'll do more than that Arch."
He got to turn the tables on me twice! I was not pleased about that because I love being in control, but today I learned that sometimes letting go is the best way of taking in.
Do not let anyone define you.
