Marbles

Did you ever have one of those days that just seemed to go on and on and on?
Not in the bad way or even a good way, just a day.
As I head upstairs to get ready for work, that’s when I noticed something just didn’t feel right. Not in the, “Oh he’s got the touch,” kind of way.
Although if you talk to some of my friends they’ll be more than happy to tell you that I’m touched, but anyways. It was just a feeling.
My mentor would say to me most likely – “Stop waiting for the other shoe to drop.”
I have, well for the most part I have. It’s work in progress, right.
As long as I’m doing the next right thing, which this brings me to that part of my life where doing nothing or sometimes having to make those decisions that at the time seem wrong.
As I finished up and headed out the door to start my work day that’s when the phone goes off. Now living in the times that we do and now having what we call a smart phone, which I have to tell you, makes me feel not too smart at all, I notice that the call was from family.
If you’re anything like me – just that word alone should sum-up how I felt.
Fight or flight, take your pick. For a split second I thank to myself, should I answer it?
That’s when I can hear my mentor saying, “Stop waiting for the other shoe to drop.”
I have, well for the most part I have. It’s work in progress, right.
