OVERHEARD ON THE STREET CORNER
Taking the dog for a walk the other day, I overheard two men talking at the street corner. As we approached, I noticed that one fellow looked rather upset. The other asked him –
“Well, Bob – why did you leave your job if you are so upset about not being there any longer?”
“It was something my boss said that made me leave.”
“What could your boss have possibly said that was so bad it would make you leave your job right on the spot like that?”
“He said – ‘YOU’RE FIRED!’”
These are stressful times for us all right now and for so many reasons.
Please remember to take some personal moments thru the day to simply stop, take a deep breath, relax your shoulders and muscles, and simply be.
Being mindful, eating healthy, following the recommended guidelines of handwashing, social distancing, and sheltering in place to take care of ourselves, our families, and loved ones, staying positive, being kind and helping each other — these are things we all can do now. And keep doing.
And finding something to smile about and taking a minute to laugh now and then, for laughter truly is the best medicine!
Stay positive, Be Well, and We Will All Get Thru This Together! — Jim (and Red!)
