Labor Day Thoughts

This past week was one that I am definitely glad to see come to an end. The party is over, had a great response at the tailgate, even with some nasty weather rolling in. Hopefully the next game this Saturday will give us better tailgating weather. I sure hope so.
There was great response to our shirts. Many people looked at them and thought about the meaning behind the shirts. Truth of the matter is, there is no meaning. Working in an industry that relies on information fast, it got me to thinking about how society as a whole is constantly in a rush. Everyone in a hurry. We have used technology to help this by the invention and refining of cell phones. Gone are the days of letters and in with emails, texting, and IM'ing. Everything has to be NOW NOW NOW. If more people were to slow down, many things would probably fall in great order. It seems that so many people rely on the instant gratification, that they lose sense of greater scheme of things. If you just read the shirt and not try to read too much into it, you will get it, "Why Not." It is a simple phrase that can mean so many things. Why not make the left and not the right to see where it takes you? Why not branch out and take a class that may be challenging and actually stimulate your brain? Simplicity has so many benefits in it, it is something that needs to be really be considered and enjoyed. Life is too short to always be in a rush and forget to 'Smell the Roses.' Enjoy what you have in front of you and take it one day at a time.
From time to time, I hope to have some more simple phrase items for everyone. Keep a look out for them.
