Round and round we go, where we stop …

Ferris-wheelSomebody knows!

It’s Monday … so, we’re up (are we?) and making that familiar groaning sound … Here we go, again!

Is it really so bad so be up and alive?  For those who are employed, is it really such a grind to have a job and income?!  To those who are creating something new, with or without a “job”, isn’t it the best of times to do just that?!

As the photo says, there’s a “Winner Every Race!”.  Am I in it to win it?  Am I pumped to make something happen today, or have I just settled in for the ride?

The above photo is from the Yucaipa (CA) Arts Festival, May 5, 2013.  The one, below, is the original “Chicago Wheel” (the “Ferris Wheel”), designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr.  It opened to the public on June 21, 1893.  Different wheel, same concept … make people go in circles for a cheap thrill ride.

Ferris-wheel-originalI posit that nothing is more thrilling today than the opportunity to make something of the day.  Yes, it’s “Monday”, and instead of the usual, “Whoa, is me!”, how about, “Go, is me!”

I’m up, I’m ready, I’m a creative leader … no round and round for me … I’m designing, acting, moving, and making a difference.  I will not just go along for the ride!
