Snapping out of it

Leave a comment

I had a real setback earlier this week that I’m still trying to snap out of. I’m extremely disappointed about the negative effect it has had on me and my family. I’ve always had trouble letting go of things when I’ve been wronged. I think the phrase that applies is “It sticks in my craw.”

Karma baby, may it bite those who deserve it.

Each day I try to get better with my temper. I consciously make a serious effort. But there are still people and actions taken in this world that really rub me the wrong way.

Luckily we had our granddaughter today and that innocence and joy, the love and trust, the warmth and appreciation was a nice relief from some poor feelings. And the day was finished with a nice visit with my father and mother inlaw.

It didn’t cure me because I’ll be dealing with long term effects of this issue for some time but it helped me refocus. Not forgive, but to not let it dominate my time. Not let it dominate my attitude or dampen my joy of life and each day. Even though it’s not a small thing, I’ll put it in that category when it comes to worrying about it.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Desire does the job.
  • If you add chores to your already busy routine, but you see the payoff, they no longer are chores, they are just routine.
  • Hopefully, I’ll turn the corner tonight and wake up totally motivated on Saturday.
  • My dental hygienist has the softest touch with my teeth. I don’t dread a dental visit when I know I’ll have her cleaning the pearly whites.
  • Sometimes when you feel like you have the most time to do a post, it’s actually the least amount, as I finish another one just before midnight.
