The Daily Cup – Don’t Let It Bug You

deli - 0430

……………………………………………………..

This time of year, six and eight-legged creatures that hide in house plants and corners to stay warm for the winter awaken and come out in search of food, water and freedom. Let’s face it, we do not want bugs in our house; we are bigger and stronger, therefore we win, hands down! The bugs that hide in the house are not typically the ones that destroy forests we hear about on the news. Today, if you see a bug in your house or office, get a drinking glass and a thin piece of cardboard (membership cards from magazines work best). Capture the little guy in the glass. Slide the card onto the opening and escort it outside. In fact, do this often enough and over time you may notice that your dislike for insects has vanished. This does not mean you will invite them in, but at least they won’t seem like monsters anymore. (Image from Walt Disney’s A Bug’s Life).

……………………………………………………..

Everybody’s got a variety of shoes. Open your closet and take a look at your own collection. Select one pair, other than the one you wear every day at home, that you usually wear on road trips or while on vacation. Put them on. Sit down with your feet on something so you see your shoes. In your mind, list 5 cool places you’ve been while wearing those shoes. Single one place that stands out. Call one person you have not seen for a while and who was there with you that day. Plan another outing together soon. Make sure to tell him/her how to Choose Your Shoes!

The Daily Cup – Take a Detour

……………………………………………………..

Take the long way home today. On your way home from work or from running errands, make a random turn and drive around for a while. If the children are with you, that is even better. If you live in the country, or can do so without making nearby residents feel invaded, stop briefly to snap a few pictures with your phone. Then, upload them to your home or work computer’s desktop so you can see them for a few days and be reminded of that time you spent driving home with a new perspective.
