Sometimes in life, we get pooped on. Yeah, I said poop. There are a dozen other words to use but I chose poop because it's hard to say without smiling and you can't stay mad saying it with a grumpy face. Try it! What prompted me to talk about poop....well, look at the photo above my friends. My beautiful deck post has a nice mark on it. How can I display anything on it with this mess on display? Adding insult to injury this bird has horrible aim. With all the advances in GPS and data-driven targeting you'd think he'd hit dead-on-balls accurate. But instead he decorated my deck post with an off drop-zone hit with what he had for breakfast. Go back to flight school!
So what's the lesson here? It sure ain't the physics of a precision drop. It's plain and simple....we get pooped on from time to time folks. Sometimes by others, sometimes it happens at work and sometimes we have poop just lying in-around our lives that we fail to clean up. My advice is to get off your butt and clean it up! DO....or DO NOT....there is no try. I believe that I heard that once from a very small, yet green Jedi. Clean up the droppings in your life, even if you didn't cause it. It's messy, it smells and you'll want to burn the rag you used to wipe it up, but get it cleaned off your life. Shed the poop from your life before it stains.
So many people, including myself, are guilty of not cleaning up the messes in our lives. So I urge you to join me in cleaning up the bird stains your life, today! Take action, that's the key to cleaning anything in your life. Absent action, the poop will tend to stain over time and ultimately leave an enduring mark. Sometimes the poop will wipe off easy and sometimes you need lots of scrubbing and a blow-torch. Whatever the method, and however long it takes, get rid of the poop in your life. It'll change your attitude, change how you feel about yourself and perhaps change you life or those lives around you. I'm going to start right now by going outside to take care of this mess. Happy Cleaning!
