Sometimes We All Need To Step Back.
I get excited during this time of year as the summer winds down (well, maybe not in Orlando), the NFL and college football are in full swing, and most the world’s soccer leagues (other than MLS) start their long and crazy seasons. With all of that in motion it sometimes is hard to reconcile what has happened in South Texas, the Caribbean, Florida, Mexico and Puerto Rico. While most of us go about our daily lives relatively unaffected by these tragic events, there are hundreds of thousands without the basic needs of water nonetheless electricity. Many have lost all of their worldly possessions and only now trying to figure out how to put their lives back together. No housing, no water, the lack of electricity and the threat of future storms or earthquakes makes life even worse for those affected.
Sometimes, and now would be the time, we should all step back and be thankful for what we do have and stop worrying about what we don’t or can’t have. Yes, many of us feel the daily pressures from life but would any of us trade our lives for anyone living in Puerto Rico? Can you put yourself in the shoes of a small business owner in the Florida Keys, or the entrepreneur in Mexico? For one, make your donation to the RED CROSS by simply going to their website. Secondly, be very thankful for what you do have and immediately Cork the Whine!
Go have your Funday Sunday but keep your thoughts and prayers with the people around the world suffering from these events.
