Notes from Steve

October 25, 2018

So today I thought I hung up with a meeting on the phone … I didn’t as I started another discussion, and blathered away to a bunch of people what I thought was a private discussion.  #mortified (Like keeping the door open while you are having a full physical.)  I remember in New Hampshire in 1992 I was meeting with my maintenance leaders and we just paged something over the intercom using the phone.  Well, it didn’t hang up, and we proceeded to complain about the CEO after the page … not realizing that it was being broadcast to the entire hospital.  Some days …

My biggest opportunity in life is to move on.  Not get obsessed and paranoid about my missteps and foibles to the point of handicapping my journey.  “It happened, move on.”  Easier said than done, but in the greater scheme of life, things happen and as our wise guides in our lives have said, no point in crying over spilt milk. 

I was with friends this past weekend; these are good friends from way back.  We laughed over pictures of ourselves and dumb things we’ve done.  There is so much anger and frustration in the world and people are so serious about everything. Wouldn’t it be nice to just laugh and be honest regarding what really is important?  When we sit back and see situations for really what they truly are … a good portion of the time, the issues don’t necessitate the negative emotions we give to them.  Bottom line, we’re only going to live so long, let’s make the most of it.
