“Why did you arrange the mugs at this end?” asked a visibly annoyed K trying to bring order to the chaos that was our dishwasher. Smiling and winking I said “because I can?”. The rest of the exchange is immaterial but the phrase “because I can” is symbolic of where I am right now.
I have often wondered on the power of words. Some just catch on and serve as an anchor on days when there is little else to hang on to. As I sit back looking at the maze of unread emails on my system and feel like I want to crawl back into bed and forget about everything else, I push back and attack it one by one.
Because I can. Because I should.
I wonder if this can be a rallying cry for me in other areas you know like de-cluttering, going green, digging into my pockets for a cause and being happy.
Happy Friday folks!
