See, we all have been attacked by these terrorist thugs. In my case, I let them change not only my thinking process but patterns in MY life! I just *had* to follow every breaking story, see every related interview, stay on top of every detail of 'war on terrorism' and otherwise remain a slave to chaos these demons created. I was getting my routine work done but that was all. I had NOT been my progressive, creative and otherwise normal self since September 11. Partial victory, Osama!
For some reason though, this twisted dream made me realize that I had option NOT to be a victim and play into blood stained hands of these devils on earth.
So I made some decisions. I am no longer staying tuned to play-by-play of War on Terrorism. I'm going to do something fun with my family this weekend and every weekend thereafter. And, I AM back to work on a new project that was "inspired" by great tragedy of September 11. And boy does it feel great!
I am now getting on with business and my life. Something so many of us have to do a much better job of. When you really think about it, being all-consumed by events of recent future only plays into hands of thugs that are trying to destroy all that is good in this world. Psychological terrorism is potent and an awfully easy infection to catch but good news is you're a decision or two away from a cure!
Yes, we are in a war. A war of good versus evil. Right against wrong. Love against hate. World War III? No way! We all know who's going to win this thing and it's just a matter of time. The same time we can be putting to use in ways that make *us* contribute to coming victory! Allowing fear that terrorists have created to dominate our thinking, stop us from living our lives normally and moving forward in our businesses and careers is in reality hoisting white flag to evil we are fighting!
We owe it to ourselves, our families, our businesses and our free nations to get back to normal in these unnormal times. Like, right now! May I suggest taking family to your favorite restaurant and a movie this weekend? How about planning a well-deserved trip, even if by car and even if just a weekender? Doesn't a leisurely excursion to your local mall to treat yourself to something you've wanted for a long time sound good? And by all means, if you have been swimming in same soup as I have for weeks now, make a decision to get back to work!
I urge you to put an end to whatever level of shutdown you may still be in. Hopefully you were more enlightened than me, and dug out early. But if not, begin process of "letting go" of those things you can't control and take possession of what you can - Your Life!
I've started that process and I can't begin to explain great sense of freedom I have. The same feeling I had before that terrible day none of us will ever forget.
