and Ill show you the blogger?
Ok, so it doesnt flow quite as well as my fave fave quote: show me the FRIENDS and I’ll show you the WOMAN but you get the idea.
The point of this post is three-fold:
- VOLUNTEER. My mother is renown for saying “the best opportunities are outgrowths of volunteer efforts.” This could be job-related. This could be friendship/relationship related. For her the notion crosses all arenas and I have to say Ive found this to be true. The writing opportunity I have today is a direct result of volunteer efforts from yesterday.
- WE ARE PERCEIVED TO BE LIKE THOSE WITH WHOM WE SURROUND OURSELVES. In this instance Im honored to be listed among highly trained experts & very respected writers & hope ‘outsiders’ view me as one of them. In other instances, in my younger days, I made some, uh, poor “surrounding” choices and deserved the assumptions made about me as a result
even though at the time they pissed me off. This whole concept—while a semi-complicated one–is something Im already striving to teach the Tornado. It’s amazing what assumptions we (the royal) make about people given the crowd they hang with. Is this right? I dont know that it is. Does it happen? Heck yes. This is a notion I think about frequently.
- Im frazzled. There are lots of life-things happening right now. Some great. A few not so. Im in a go go go place & either compelled to JETTISON exercise or stop take.a moment. and PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH. In a fitting fashion my post today over at the Life…supplemented blog (managed by the Council for Responsible Nutrition) is about precisely this: fitting fitness into a busy life. Im hectic. Im stressed. More than ever I need to be sure I plan in time to workout.
Im over there hanging today.
And Im over here fitting in this:
And taking many many deep breaths.
It seems we are all jammedslammed this time of year—are you making time to fit in some fitness?
Have you, too, spent time reflecting (hello high school years!) upon the notion of “show me the friends and Ill show you the wo/man?”
Wanna join me in a fittingitin office workout?
