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.
