Shhh....I'm listening to wisdom!
Apr 30, 2020
Hey everyone, we're being hit with so much negative these days and I wanted to send a short message of encouragement to you.
As a child of the 80's I watch the movie "Pee Wee's Big Adventure".
It's a totally goofy movie.
But one of the funniest lines that I remember to this day is when his friend urges Pee Wee to listen to reason. Then when his friend tries to talk, Pee Wee says "Shhhhhh….I'm listening to reason!"
This came to mind again at a recent visit to my parents front yard.
We were keeping our social distance from them and had our two teenage kids with us at the time.
Before we left, my Dad walked closer to my kids and said,
"Hey, just remember this about all this Coronavirus stuff and quarantine…this is NOT the Worst thing that will happen to you in your lifetime"
So my kids didn't mistake the comment as a downer, I added the phrase "This too shall pass".
The more I thought about it, the more I appreciated what my Dad was conveying to my kids because I saw it from the eyes of wisdom.
My Dad served in the US Navy in the Vietnam War and his parents and my mom's parents lived through the Great Depression.
As people who have seen a lot more than this, his wisdom was that what we're currently experiencing is not the worst thing that could be happening.
So, in case you're struggling with fear or anxiety or just plain STIR Crazy…
I thought I'd share it with you as encouragement during these crazy days we're living in!
Despite the struggles we're in…My encouragement to myself and to you is to
listen to WISDOM and know that
- things could always be Worse…
