Path leads to Grrr

Sunday, February 25, 2007

Life takes so many differnt paths.
Sometimes you just have to pause on Grrrr....
Can life be taken too seriously?
Seriously, I'd like to know your thoughts on this.

    Yup, know what you mean...I need to stop taking things too seriously but it's inbred in me (must be that Teutonic background). I find the older I get the more serious I take things but now as I watch my mother in the final years of her life I realize it's all bullshit really. I'm going to try to chill out somewhat...ciao

    Frivolity and fun are easy, the hard part is finding humour in the most ordinary of things and not taking *yourself* so seriously that you can't risk appearing strange if you share it with someone else.

    Sometimes it's best to let whatever unpleasant that is happening ride. Stressing or getting fed up with it isn't going to make it go away. Just get it over with, and the sooner you'll be chilling with tea and a book.

    Hmm... Would this be more appropriate on your last post?

    It is so very easy to get your priorities out of wack when dealing with every day issues. People just learn how to push your buttons.

    I agree with rositta...The past few years have knocked everything in it's place. The role reversal with my parent's is really humbling. Everything I ever fretted about and lost valuable happy time over was just not even worth a second thought. I pick my battles very carefully. For the rest of the time I am going to enjoy.

    Sending you lots of hugs,
    Connie

    Sometimes we get stuck on "Grrr". Definitely need to be able to step off the "Grrr" space and breathe.

  1. Blogger CiscoKid said:

    A good GRR! is necessary from time o time.
    The drawing is very interesting though.. Your kid's?

  1. Blogger Tee said:

    Looks like it could hang in some abstract art gallery with the right framing.

    I'm stuck on GR, too.

    Talking to kids about their art is a good way to open lines of communication but I wouldn't worry too much.

  1. Blogger fb said:

    This is very very good. I'm afraid I didn't read the previous post yet but am commenting on the picture.

    having kids lets me remember to laugh and have fun once in a while...just when i see myself turning into my mother, i stop and take a deep breath, and take two. :)

    Some of us do, some of us don't.
    I think as long as we stay true to our principles, life can be a ride, a fun one too.

  1. Blogger Sophie said:

    I try to take it lightly:)

  1. Blogger wanda said:

    That seem like fun until the paper ran out. :)

  1. Blogger holy chaos said:

    yes,it can be taken too seriously. i agree with ian... it helps to move past "grrr"

    i like what rositta said.

    what matters when all is said and done.

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    I notice when I start thinking about the bd things it starts to pile up.

  1. Blogger PEA said:

    There's always some Grrrr in our lives but we just need to pass by them and continue on. xox

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Hello Friends;
    As a matter of clarification: my oldest son made this masterful creation and it depicts a video game that he had been playing earlier that day; it started out as a maze that he was making for me to solve, but quickly turned into a Playstation video game turned into Picasso masterpeice. The "Gr" is the point at which a villian must be defeated.

    And so, my villians...my life is serious comment; I think I am like Rositta (with the Teutonic background as well); I take life very seriously but also know when to pause and have fun. But lately, I am bogged down with the seriousness of it. And it's hard to have fun when faced with all that.I am torn between wanting to step back from the grr space, and knowing that I have to remain there until the villians are finally defeated.

    I think you should put out a big piece of paper for yourself, and get yourself some crayons. Kids have the right idea :)

  1. Blogger holy chaos said:

    hey cathy,
    you are on my YouYou post so check it out if you have a chance! :)

  1. Blogger blackcrag said:

    Yes, you certainly can take life too seriously. In my experience, no matter how serious the situation, you can usually find some humour in any situation, even if it's only in how ridiculous the person causing you grief is behaving.

    I like Stephanie's idea though... grab a piece of paper and draw your son a maze to solve.

  1. Blogger barb said:

    Yeah ... don't take it too seriously. Stop and enjoy. My sister's house burnt down last week. While she and I were filtering through some of the rubble, we found some broken dishes and as I tossed them to her and she used a crowbar as a baseball bat, we were able to laugh over what could be considered a tragedy. Sometimes finding humor in something takes a real effort, but sometimes it's the way to get through it.

  1. Blogger Trundling Grunt said:

    Yes it can. Sometimes there is a lot of crud going on and we get locked into it (I think I'm in that state of late), even though we know we shouldn't and claim we don't. Maybe we need someone or something to make us pause and rethink it. Grr.

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    That's bizarre ... my current post is titled Grrrr !!!
    I know what you mean, though. I tend to think most people take life far too seriously ... we all need some fun and frivolity !
    Take care, hugs, Meow
