Cricket's Thoughts

Never Miss The Sunset

Never Miss The Sunset

No matter how easy going we are, most of us need to blow off a little steam now and then. Perhaps we are a bit frustrated with a project, or maybe we are just overtired and feel the overwhelming urge to throw something because we just can’t get it to work.

Okay, so I admit it. I have a few keyboards around that may or may not be in several pieces from unceremoniously tossing them. (smirk)

Afterwards though, I always end up feeling a bit disappointed in myself because it means I lost my temper. If only for a moment, I was not in control of my emotions.

Why didn’t I walk away from it before it reached that point of no return?

As always, I am a work in progress.

I say that because I am currently typing on a keyboard that is…


kinda missing a foot so it’s a bit, shall we say, crooked right now?

So after spouting off for a bit to a friend that knows just to grin and tease it out of me, I remembered how important it is to know how I respond to certain things, and to use techniques that help me get past those moments.


Because life is just way too short to fuss over the little stuff.

So here I am, at 10:30 at night reminding myself of a few things.

Never miss enjoying the sunset. Walk outside and live in that moment.

Take time to walk every single day just for fun, not for training.

Stop for a moment and hold one of my cats. Listen to their purr.

And never let a day pass without bringing a smile to someone’s face.

So I wonder if they sell disposable keyboards? 🙂

      Might make sense to buy stock in keyboards. LOL

    Thanks for your blog Cricket.. It was very appropriate right now. I sure could use a deep breath, take a time out and pet a purring kitty.. I am so uptight right now. Been very distracted and needed to calm down…

    As long as they don’t start flying in the air… towards someone’s head!

    With how little keyboards cost now, don’t they pretty much all count as disposable? 😛
