I have been sick since Christmas. Sick and tired that is. Sick and tired because.... Wait a minute, that is pretty negative. Negativity feeds unreasonable comment and complaining. We all know how much fun it is to sit in a room, especially a waiting room, be it a doctors office, or car repair, or tax/accountant office when someone starts complaining to the room at large. Everyone gets embarrassed and quiet Unless another complainer engages the conversation. Then it spreads like a virus. Whew. Unfortunately our media is rampant with complaining, editorials, political attacks, he said, she said drama. We don't need more of that. So lets start again.
I had some challenges over the holidays which prevented me from functioning at my best. I did not get the time off from work because I did not put in for the vacation time early enough. I usually spend the time between Christmas and New Year rejuvenating, meditating, getting some exercise, visting friends and relatives. This year I had to work. What a pain. I prayed for the strength to maintain my cool self, but on a few occasions I broke. I got angry, I cried, I whined. What a mess. I need to make amends to all those who experienced my self pity and ridiculousness. It was Christmas, the birth of the child Jesus, love and joy unto you. But somehow I missed it. I completed a Novena last week and finally the veil has lifted. I am beginning to feel myself again. It is with a humble and contrite heart I say thank you to all my friends and relatives who noticed. Thank you for not mentioning my out of norm presentation or comments. Most of all I thank God for staying with me. PBTGA
