More lessons from my knee.

Published on June 5, 2012 by in Uncategorized

I continue to learn from my gimpy knee. Last week we took our family vacation at Universal Orlando. I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the rest of the gang hobbling along with my cane so, much as I hated to do it, I rented an Electric Courtesy Vehicle. I did feel a bit the geezer scooting along, but I was able too keep up with the family, and had a pretty good time.

Yours truly on my electric courtesy vehicle

One of the key points in Laugh2Learn’s keynote, “Rx for Stress: Laughter Plus Control,” is that we should choose our focus. I am often reminded of the wisdom  I saw  on the wall of a donut shop in Los Angeles in 1960:

As you go through life my friend;

Whatever be your goal;

Keep your eye upon the donut;

And not upon the hole.

So here’s the hole: I look like a helpless old fart.

But consider the donut:

  • I can keep up with my family
  • This is temporary until I get a new knee
  • I got to go to the head of every line I got into!

Oh yeah! Every line, and what’s more when my family was with me, we all got to go to the head of the line.

So what if I may look like a helpless old fart? I’m on the ride and you’re still standing in line.

Life can almost always be better if you choose your focus.
