February Feels Fine

It’s Friday, February 10, 2017 and the stresses of work are mounting.  One project deliverable is due; no, actually two documents are due.  One will probably make it and I have no control over the other one.  Another project schedule is behind, a conference call is necessary, and invoices and time sheets need to be approved.  I even have an opportunity to bid on more work, which requires time for cost estimating.

I have to admit that these aren’t stresses of survival.  I’m not a refugee.  I have much to be thankful for, yet I still can’t help feeling the constant stress of a professional life.

What should I do?

On this day, I choose to take advantage of an unusually warm February day and go for a ride.

Slipping on my jacket, I smile.
Opening the door…freedom.
Pushing on my helmet, I pause.
Twisting the key…excitement!
Turning the throttle; a crescendo.
Now I’m in the moment.  Mindful.

Breath in…breath out…
