Thank You for the Occasional Attitune-up

If humans were automobiles, attitude would be the engine.

Sometimes I forget that I actually have a modicum of control over my attitude.

I forget that I have an entire tool box of experiences to adjust my attitude when the timing belt is slipping or my idle is too high or my crank case is cracked.

Often, I need the help of one of my mechanically inclined friends, who listen to me, offer honest feedback, and check my emotional handy work before I get back on the road.

An occasional attitune-up is very good for my perspective and keeps my engine running smoothly (even over big bumps and giant holes in the road).

I am thankful for the folks in my life that are familiar with the way my engine works and who take the time to notice if it is pinging or knocking.

I am especially thankful for the friends who know where the oil goes and who fill my tank with premium.

  1. I don’t know anyone who’s cool. All my friends are nerds, dorks, geeks, and outright outcasts (and in some cases, outlaws). I prefer my friends to anyone who thinks s/he is cool. Cool is the new un-cool. I’m so freakin’ lukewarm…and I hope you’re still my friend.


  2. That comment above was meant for your next post. It’s late, and I’m blog surfing as fast as I can. See how uncool I am???
