We Didn’t Learn This Stuff in School and a Lack of Social Distancing

Sometimes in life I wonder why we were not taught “life skills” as we were growing up. I am not referring to skills needed to live alone, without adult support and supervision. My question involves the skills necessary when difficult decisions need to be made.   

Today was a day of challenges based on having made difficult decisions. It was one thing to decide something. Carrying things out, even when you know it was the correct decision, isn’t always as easy.   

At the end of the day I retreated to my quiet place where I could reflect on the day, the decisions, and the anticipated outcomes. As I sat on my thinking bench for quite some time, I had a camera recording pictures every five seconds of the colorful sunset – enhanced by the wildfires in the western part of the country. When I watch the completed video, I recognized the calming effect of the setting sun was also realized on my mood. Tough decisions – yes. Correct decisions – yes. Let time play this out…it will be OK.

On to another topic… Apparently the milkweed bugs did not receive the memo about social distancing…
