This month of June has shown us many things. The most interesting thing i've come to realize is that, if its not one thing, its another. The meaning of these words drives straight to our inner mindsets and nature of being. Its saying that we will always be tuned into our fears and worries, and if its not whats bothering you now, it would simply be another thing.
So where am i going with this idiom? Our nature as humans is to perceive threats and avoid them to survive. We are programed to see problems and if we arn't mindful of our own inner thoughts and feelings we can easily be swept up in the powerful emotions. When we accept our nature we can more mindfully observe our thoughts and make deliberate choices to engage in a line of productive worrying OR disengage from negative thoughts around things you cant control.
I cant control the signing of our contract with LOPR. I've felt powerless to help our members get back to the sport they love! If i could magically get the contract signed, the next problem will arise!!!
So without the path open, we wont have access to the boathouse ramp. This means if we get the contract signed, rowing this summer will involve being shuttled to the boathouse via launch from the amphitheater dock. This is a minor issue with the 2x2 launch plan we have. So for a problem like this one, this is the best time to have to deal with it. That said, i have taken the initiative to put 8 singles on our trailer for use off the boathouse dock.
Until we have things with the city figured out, we will accommodate our steadfast members who simply want to get out and enjoy their passions. This sport and this team are so much more than just a workout group to stay fit. We are a family of like-minded individuals who found acceptance, comradery and a great workout in rowing at LOCR. I'm sure we can get through this issue and face the next one.
Stay positive while dealing with your problems, because if its not one thing, its another.
