Thought For The Day

October 1, 2008 by esarsea

Work (and life in general) has been hectic of late, and as a result I have not had much time to devote to The BS Blog. With my co-host under the weather as well, our fledgling project has not seen much activity.

I was exchanging emails with a friend earlier today when I shared the following thought: All we can do, is the very best we can do, with what we have to deal with at this very moment. I can’t take credit for the quote. I don’t recall where I first heard it or when I first used it, but I have assimilated that statement into my own set of ideals.

At first glance this statement seems simplistic, and smells of something you’d read in an unsolicited email containing some cheezy “Quote of the day” along with an advertisement for a Canadian pharmacy selling ED meds. Upon further consideration however, If a problem could not be solved that way, how else could one resolve it?

That’s all I’ve got for today. I’ve got some follow-up calls to make and then I’m going home. Later!

    Here’s the first rule of blogging: there are no rules (not when you’re the author). Blogging is, generally, a hobby. It’s there for you when you want it. Not the other way around. Never forget that!

    As far as doing the best we can with what we have? True, true, true.

    I still like this blog, fledgling or not. I like the people here. For some reason I love my connections to people who aren’t part of my everyday world, but I still have much in common with. Goddess, I have checked out a bit of your site as well.

    I have seen the Thought for the Day quote somewhere else, and I have truly tried to embrace that philosophy in my life. I used to be very crabby and stressed about the pace of life with work and family, and it took me years to figure out that it just ain’t worth it. I’ve heard various people also talk about how our society is so rushed, we’ve forgotten how to really live in the “very moment” much as young children do. Of course, as in all things, balance is needed. I believe I lived too much “in the moment” in college and didn’t take my future very seriously, and I am paying for it now with a not-so-great-job in order to pay the bills.

    Anyway, thanks for the thought, Stu. I’m thinking of a song with the lyrics, “These small hours, these little wonders, these twists and turns of fate” Rob Thomas… I think….hear it on the radio all the time. Now, off to get some work done….before I go to work!

    If I ever get my ass in gear, I’ll have the remnants of my blues blog up before too long. Or maybe never. I may just blend them together and forget the other ever existed. Hope there’s enough on my site to get you to come say hi every now and again.

    I find myself poking around your place pretty much on a daily basis, just don’t always have much to say or contribute. Cute kid, BTW!

    Hmm, interesting the way some of your recent writings are somewhat related to some of those of one of my heroes, Ralph Nader. he has written about traditions of his family like what you wrote about with your grandfather.
    you can read about it here http://www.votenader.org/blog/2008/10/03/mom-dad-and-todays-house-vote/
    and when you wondered about other solutions, well Ralph was raised to think of solutions to problems. mostly those of society and government but still same theme, if you think about it, often there are better solutions or solutions when there seem to be none.
    in recent news with the bailout, it is a shame that American didn’t heed the warning of the problems with Fannie and Freddy when he spoke out of the dangers back in 2000. yeah back in 2000
    i urge all to read/learn more about the Nader/Gonzalez campaign at home page of above link if you are interested in solutions, you know like better ways…oh Pain and Sorrow till we find another way….

    Jane, only you could figure out how to work a “Pain and Sorrow” reference into this! :-)

    I’ll check out your link. I really don’t know much about Nader other than the sometimes annoying protective devices and safety switches he helped implement for power tools and such…
