Tucking in the Corners of Your Life
day is done, gone the sun,…oh wait that’s a camp song meandering through my sleepy thoughts as I argue gently with myself about doing a post on corners. I have already posted for today but am behind on the dailies and the corner thing is annoying my sandman who is poised to pop a little sand but now must wait because..yes the corners win.
It all started as I drew back the bed covers, a somewhat ridiculously delicious action that signals that day in fact is done and a reward awaits for the toils of the day. At this point I snuggle in propped by pillows and feeling rather royal to read a few blogs. This night I paused as an askew corner of the fitted sheet caught my eye.
Well that won’t do, I tell myself making no move to fix it..at first.
It makes no difference and will not affect your slumbers I tell myself firmly.
But it’s not right, I sigh.
It won’t affect your sleep, I say again with more emphasis.
Aw heck, I give in and tighten the corner.
Now comes the really annoying me thinking that I must check the other corner.
Don’t be ridiculous, the Other corner is fine and you are not obsessive.
Accepting my observation on OCD I then proceed to check and tighten the other corner, which in no way had to be altered.
Throughout this activity and consideration it dawned on me that we really do need to tuck in the corners of our lives. When something is a little askew that is the time to stop and make an adjustment so we can continue onward and before it becomes a big wrinkle.
Now this could have been more simply said…
A stitch in time saves nine (I know it but never do it as picking up a needle seems outside my skills. But the idea is there.)
maybe just maybe….day is done..now
