Easy Does It!

Easy Does It

Happy Hump Day, y’all!

It seems it was just yesterday when I last said this … Or, maybe it was Happy Friday from last week! How’s your week going? I hope yours is well. I had a tough week last week after an incredible interview with an international company to work in educational sales. Well, it seemed that they were very interested in me, did not ask permission to do a background check, but rescinded the offer the very next day! When I asked why they didn’t want to hire me, I was told by a recruiter, “You don’t have enough sales background.” That was my clue that they had actually done a background check and found some skeletons from several years back … over 10 years, in fact. I have worked in sales for the past 5 years! One kind of gets tired of being reminded and reduced to something of ones past … distant past even … and that behaviour no longer is present in ones life!!

I had to return to my “program” lessons, which I use and apply most days anyway. “Easy does it!” … Keep it simple, stupid! (KISS) … “Let go and let God” … and The Serenity Prayer are amongst my favorites. For me, it is nearly therapeutic to share my life’s experiences with you all. Some of the readers seem to look forward to these messages, and others even reply. Yet, with my occasional typographic errors and all, you guys continue to support me in my efforts to spread good feelings. I could’ve used a few last week but managed to make it without any self destructive thoughts or actions, better yet. Between the wonderful yoga classes and class mates, thoughts of “What Would Mom Do?”, chatting with some good friends, swimming in the ocean and “keeping it simple,” the situation was handled with care!

So much going on in the world today, in our country … with acrobats escaping near death in Providence at the Ringling Brothers Circus, … and abroad with hundreds of women … girls from a school … kidnapped in Nigeria by purported Al Queda linked groups. What more can go wrong?! Oooops! I’d better not ask. Well, whenever something hits you hard, and it hurts a bit, be aware of your spiritual tools … and use them. Thanks for reading.

Peace and Love,

John I. Cook, Director

    You know, KC, that is why I remain spiritual in today’s terribly materialistic world! I can only imagine that it even happened to you! Thanks for reaching out, too!
