No one could be more surprised than me about this dedication.
This one is for you Dad.
In my own weird way, I’m a workaholic too.
In the Queen Latifah “Behind The Music” Madame Dana talks about finally being wealthy enough to buy her and her brother motorcycles. Something they always wanted but could never afford. And she also talks about the motorcycle accident that claimed her brother’s life. It’s a story I often think about when I mentally circle all the stuff that is going shitty in my own scenario. It could, and someday will, be worse.
If the people you love are happy and healthy and still around you, then, well, shut your damn pie hole. Right?
After talking about that incident Ms. Latifah said something bold- about not regretting a thing. And she goes on to explain herself with a thought that I still think about (obviously) to this very day.
This is not verbatim, but essentially:
“You have to work as hard as you play and play as hard as you work. If you only do one or the other than neither one makes any sense.”
*sigh* Let’s do this. I’ve got my Workenstocks on. ♥
