You’re spittin’ in the wind, kid,
Living like that, life ain’t never gonna change,
it’s a summary of what we did
and the strength that we’ve maintained.
There’s a limited supply of life so
Pick your battles carefully,
learn when to fight and when it’s
best to just go ahead and fold.
Master the art of bowing out gracefully,
finding out what matters and,
occasionally, remembering what you’ve
been told, or all you’ll do is, in the end,
wind up shooting sparrows and
regretting that you’ve grown old.
Advice from an old-timer, right there. Well, not really. I’m not really sure if I saw it somewhere or just plucked it out of my head, but the term ‘shooting sparrows’ has been one I use to describe doing meaningless things, or putting your effort behind something pointless. Sure, you can keep on doing it, but its such a common thing that it’s no real prize and its rather meaningless in the end.
Start I’d kick off the week with this lil’ thing to get it going as I get back to my posting schedule now that I am nearly done with settling into a new job and getting my last semester at the college underway. It’s been a tiring bumping road but I just had to figure out where to focus and now I might actually be getting back to things alright! Here’s to hoping that the rest of your week is awesome, and that your boss is out sick for the week!
