I recognized the second I typed Goldilocks in the subject line of this post that there was the potential for this blog to go horribly wrong and quickly run into the gutter; but, never fear dear readers we are not going to the gutter – at least not today.
When I think about Goldilocks I think about the concept “just right” – and where that concept applies for me. One might assume that Goldilocks was a perfectionist with her need to have things be “just right”, but I think she was merely a young woman who knew her own mind and wasn’t willing to settle – at least when it applied to porridge, chairs and beds. I am certainly no perfectionist, but I understand Goldilocks’ directive…in some things you cannot get to merely “good” or “close enough”…in some things you need “just right”.
I am thinking about Goldilocks today as Mike, Cheyenne and I spent the afternoon at the Mall of America and I concluded that with 520 stores the Mall of America was too big for me. I likewise concluded that my budget was too small for a proper spending spree at the Mall of America. The good news is that the company I had with me was “just right”. So as far as days go – it was a good one because no matter what was too big or too small, the most important part was “just right”. That Goldilocks had it all figured out – I’m with her.
