I was taking with 64 year old, Bob, on the phone today. The reason for calling Bob is not important, but something he said was. He was talking about people taking the little things in life too seriously and imparted on me, his use of the word, "next". His philosophy is that everything in life shall pass and so when things seem troubling or frustrating or (insert -ing here), just open your mouth and say, "next"...this will remind you that whatever it is you're experiencing will pass.
I know we've all heard various renditions of "...and this too shall pass" but for some reason on this day, at this particular moment, from this complete stranger, it just made a lot of sense.
Happy Leap Day!
(and no, I'm not proposing to anyone today)
