The art of cool

fonzie1When thinking about a challenge too much or dealing with challenging person in my life I will often move into the space of trying to be cool, which is not cool at all. This is where insecurity drives and common sense is lost in trying to look good. Is there an alternative?

Sometimes yes, the ability to quiet that voice and walk gently embracing the uncool optimist, very childlike in delighting in the moment or the excitement of the moment. And then there are other times where the voice gets louder, then I try to embrace it. Accepting trying to be cool as an extreme in my personality that I can laugh at, and hopefully minimize the repulsiveness of the whole thing by turning it into a silly spectacle.

For me the cool must be manage either way, because being cool really isn’t.
