As most of y’all know, YHC has been dealing with a bad case of poison ivy. Then now, a bad reaction to the medicine prescribed to alleviate said poison ivy. Let’s just say I’d take the poison ivy itch over the nonsense being levied by the medicine. The point is not to complain, but rather to recognize and remind myself that we all are dealing with something. Whether it be mental, physical, or both, the excuse to stay in bed and get back at it tomorrow is real and present. This morning was one of those croassroads for me. But knowing my boys would there today, and there was nothing I could do about it anyway, I posted. It got me thinking, “tomorrow” really is a 4-letter word. Not in the traditional sense, but in that it can promote laziness and complacency. It carries with it a dangerous snowball effect that flies in the face of what F3 truly stands for, at least in how I see it. So go out today and scratch that itch – just hopefully not the one that has gotten me all out of whack.
