I found this sign in a Vancouver Arena recently.

How true, I thought.   Yes! STAIRS ARE.

I could rage against the stairs.   Stairs are dangerous and exact a painful toll when I am not careful. It’s terrible that they are so steep and get slippery when it is wet outside.

But the undeniable truth is that stairs are and all my raging isn’t going to change anything. I’m just consuming time and energy to feed the emotional response.

Stairs are.  As are our children, our spouses, our co-workers and our clients. We can fight this truth, or we can just pay attention and use the handrail.

It’s up to you.
