Sweet Yellow Dots

Posted on Thursday April 26

There’s a great Jerry Seinfeld quote ~

“Life is truly a ride. We’re all strapped in and no one can stop it. When the doctor slaps your behind, he’s ripping your ticket and away you go. As you make each passage from youth to adulthood to maturity, sometimes you put your arms up and scream, sometimes you just hang onto that bar in front of you. But the ride is the thing. I think the most you can hope for at the end of life is that your hair is messed, you’re out of breath and you didn’t throw up.”

I love this.

But as it goes, sometimes we find ourselves hanging on pretty darn tight. Thinking only about the bumpy part of the ride. Thinking about what huge drop might come next. Thinking the ride isn’t perfect.

Jerry would be so disappointed.

This morning I remembered something a very wise friend once shared with me. Riding in her car, I noticed a yellow dot on her rear view mirror. When asked why, she explained that she liked to stick yellow dots in all sorts of places as a reminder that it doesn’t have to be a perfect day to be a great day.

It doesn’t have to be a perfect day to be a great day.

Wow. That’s good stuff.

It’s time to get some sweet yellow dots. And stick them everywhere.

And remember to enjoy the ride we are on.

And maybe even let go of the bar, put our hands up, and scream.

Get ready for great sweet friends!
