Today the sun was shining and despite the fact that the dental hygienist mangled my mouth, I had a wonderful day. When the sun is shining everything is better and I can eat as much ice cream I want and not gain a pound.
I have been buying books like crazy these days and it’s getting a little out of hand so I decided no more until I am finished what I have already. And I am only going to read two books at once. I need to set limits for myself or I get wild.
Centering myself has been a chore lately. I find myself affected by negativity and I get discouraged. Some people can wade in and give as good as they get but I tend withdraw and shut myself off. Not a good strategy as eventually you have to come out and rejoin the game whether you like it or not. I just get so tired of everyone thinking that the world is there own personal stage. Work is exhausting too- I am completely surrounded by people who have no idea they are bigots. Every day I have to decide what to speak up against and what to let go.
But when I leave and the sun is out and I just got my hair did and I scored the first of the spring asparagus I feel better.
