SoCS

***

My first thought was “ours is not to reason why, ours is just to do or die”. (“a slightly altered version of lines written by Lord Alfred Tennyson in his 1854 poem, The Charge of the Light Brigade, about a failed British military action: “Theirs not to make reply / Theirs not to reason why / Theirs but to do and die.”)”

I like that phrase, have used it jokingly in hard situations, because really what choice do I have? Be a pain in the butt or except what I have to do and do it. However this does not apply to things like dusting which is one of my most hateful chores. My life is so simple that I rarely have those do or die situations anymore and for that I’m grateful.

It could also be applied in today’s world for climate change, which couldn’t be a truer example. If we don’t do something we all certainly will die.

Have a nice long weekend👍🏻.
