Serenity now...Insanity later...Friday, May 21, 2010
“Serenity now…Insanity later…”
Every day, I have a choice, and with that choice, I have to react in a way that will result in calm, peaceful, quiet and serene day.
Do you remember that Seinfeld episode when Kramer was trying to open a bag of chips, unsuccessful he might have been, he didn’t freak out but instead he did his Kramer gesture and said, “Serenity Now.” Wouldn’t it be nice to have a Kramer in your life that can make you laugh when you feel like pulling your hair?
Look at my Kenmore washer-dryer. I’ve overloaded them, put all kinds of dirty laundry, ran them straight for hours and hours and yet – they are still sitting in my laundry room looking like new! We’ve had it since we moved in our home, It’s been 15 years, and it’s still working! I would love to replace them but the very reliable PSEG Worry-Free insurance keeps fixing them when they have a little hiccup here and there! Maybe one day, I’ll just go “postal” and beat them with a bat, or better yet, set them on fire (just kidding!) Maybe then, I can get to Sears and get the new, “cool-looking”, energy saving washer-dryer! With our limited budget, I must hold on to these hard working helpers for a while.
