Brain Defrazzled, 4

What is your track record with celebration frazzlement? I figure ‘a rat race is for rats only,’ and although a family member called me a ‘rat’ for failing to meet expectations, I’m way past any angst. It was just that brain’s opinion and has little or nothing to do with mine. In ‘The world According to Mister Rogers,’ Fred Rogers handed everyone a gift when he calmly reminded children as well as adults: In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers. In fact, there is no answer until you’ve identified and asked the question . . . I asked the questions about what celebrations really mean to me and how I wanted to observe or participate in them. Then I answered those questionsand that has made a difference. In the final analysis, living defrazzled—in a state of defrazzlement—is fabulous. It’s De-Lovely, De-Lightful
