Your Team

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  Yes. It is a tough time right now for everyone in many different ways.  Some people keep saying “we are all in this together.” If I hear that one more time, I will arrest everyone.  

Why do I want to arrest everyone? Because we all have different situations.  It’s good to be kind and feel part of a team.  But every team has different skills, different circumstances.  We can’t lump everyone in one team together like a lumpy batch of pancake dough.

Or Digby’s tummy.

Available for one week only!

Yes. It is a tough time. Tough times don’t last. But tough teams do.  Are you on the right team? Are you on any team?  Or are you trying to handle this all by yourself? I want you to know that you don’t have to feel bad for your individual trials right now when others seem to be handling it better than you.  Because maybe they aren’t. 

When we are on a team, we feel included and valued.  We work together to try and win.  

But in this situation, what are we winning?  None of us know even how to play the game right now.

So how can we still be a team while not undervaluing what individual problems each individual has?  We can listen.  We can be straightforward with what we are going thru.  

Uncertainty, confusion, anxiety may be just the beginning for some.  But others may also be going thru money problems, added health problems. Some may even have lost loved ones. Let’s not pretend that putting everyone on the same team is the answer.  Let’s work together to make our team stronger by embracing the differences we have.

Some days maybe you will be grumpy.  Like me. 

 

Some days maybe you will inspired and happy like Digby.

But no matter what your team is, it is guaranteed that you’ll probably switch teams the next. And that is ok.  It is more than ok to not be ok.

Granny Person also used to say, “this too shall pass.” We don’t know if that is true. But don’t let another day pass without giving yourself recognition for that goal you scored.  Yes, you did that!

Available for one week only!

How do I know? Because you are still here and still trying.  That is the most important part of a team…not giving up.  Don’t even think about it, or You. Are. Arrested.

The Hair Cut

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. I hear my name a lot.

“Digby, don’t eat that.”

“Digby, come here.”

“What are you doing, Digby?”

“Digby, what did you roll in?”

Yes. I hear my name quite a lot. I also leave a trace of myself wherever I go. A stench or a smell or both. And hair. A lot of hair. But not as much as Boy Person’s. You heard me.

Things have been crazy lately. So much so, that Boy Person hasn’t been able to get his hair cut. He’s been looking, well, groovy. Real groovy.

So he decided to take the matter of a hair cut into his own hands. I didn’t want to watch. In fact, the three of us went outside to leave him to his own devices. Which was a pair of scissors and a clipper.

We heard complaints from outside the RV as soon as his appointment with himself started.

He couldn’t see the back of his head. He couldn’t get his hair to lay right. He was getting hair all over the place. He then issued a formal complaint to himself but then kept on going.

After what seemed like hours, because it was hours, he emerged. He asked us what we thought. And actually. Well. He looked pretty good. Brickle remarked that he himself had never needed a haircut a day in his life.

And he still looked better than Boy Person. However, he did have to give him props. He looked good.

No. Boy Person won’t be changing occupations any time soon. What is his occupation anyway?

But for all of us who have learned to be more self sufficient during this time, it’s a good feeling. Often, we can do more than what we think is possible. But we aren’t willing to take a chance. It’s true that you never know what you can do until you try.

But don’t expect to get an appointment with Boy Person any time soon. He’s booked taking care of me and Digby. Oh yeah…that’s his real job.
