I think that I would rather be a leaf in the wind than a cow in a tornado. These days I'm swept along gently like the leaf. I feel as if I'm floating, rising, spiraling, and finally touch down. It is a happy feeling, especially if I just let the feeling carry me along.
Thankfully, the days of feeling like the cow in a tornado are few. It's the feeling of panic when I'm caught in a whirlwind. Too much to do and too little time to get it done. I know that I'm being carried along by the tornado and I know that if the whirlwind stops then I'm going to crash. I don't enjoy that feeling and work the program of Al-Anon to not get caught up in things that are going to let me down hard or keep me spinning.
Today, I'm grateful for a gentle wind, a smooth ride, and a soft landing.
Tab tagged me to list some things about myself. You can have your pick on the things about me since I posted a bunch of them awhile ago. In fact, it's a damn long list.
