Playing the ball where it lands.

I was reading a book this week.  In the book this woman is telling her friend the story of  a golf trip.  They were golfing in Trinidad and these monkeys sneak up and steal the golf balls, run with them and drop them somewhere else.  She was explaining that you have to learn to play where they drop them.   The rules were changed to accomodate the monkeys.

It got me thinking.  Sometimes in life you have to play the ball where the monkey drops.  Just take it as it comes.  It is what it is.  You do what you have to do to get by.  I need to stop getting my panties in a wad.  I need to stop trying to orchestrate my life.  I need to let life happen.  Have faith that it will work out.

It was a pretty powerful lesson to learn.  Something I needed to learn.  Things have been havoc in my life lately.  Good things, bad things and injuries.  For the most part, I have done a pretty good job of just keeping going.

Happy Fall, Yall!    It’s a great time for some new prospective.
