The flow, man, the flow

That’s me, a go-with-the-flow kind of person. Nary a care! No anxiety! No stress!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha! Hey, at least I can always make myself laugh, right? Right.

I’m working on that whole go-with-the-flow thing. Why, I recently realized that my car is missing a hubcap. Where did it go? I have no idea! Oh well! Also, this morning my hair was falling in my face and bugging me so I tied it in a knot. Then I realized that if it was long enough to tie in a knot, I’m about six months overdue for a haircut. (I feel like there’s a fine line between “flowing mane” and “aging hippie,” and past a certain hair length, I’m crossing it.) Did I make myself an appointment for a haircut, though? Nope! No biggie!

Yep, that’s me. I’m just rolling with it all. Or pretending to, anyway.

But hey, it’s all a part of learning to be wherever I am. Today I’m over at Alpha Mom, working on crossword puzzles and acceptance.

It’s all good. (Except my hair. I really do need a haircut.)

    My first thought at seeing your most recent Facebook picture was ‘WHHHAAAAA? The hair! It is so long!’ 😄

    Aging hippie! I resemble that remark! ;-)

    Hey! Some of my favorite people are aging hippies :)

    You know I don’t have kids, but what you wrote at Alpha Mom really hit me where I live. Acceptance is an elusive thing, but there’s something beautiful about sitting down and wrestling with the clues, just there in the moment.

    You mean it doesn’t easier as our children getbolder?

    That whole going with the flow thing….I struggle with that everyday. Being a busy mom and owning my own business, everything is scheduled down to the minute. What I have learned recently, is that life goes fast and if you spend too much time stressing you miss out on whats really important.
