So today is “E” day in my new “blog on specific topics on certain days” schema. E for emotions or our relational lives.
And today I got some grist for the mill with an emotion I’m very very familiar with – FRUSTRATION! GRRR!
Nothing big. Nothing momentous. No one (including my own dear self) who really needs a good talking to (though several candidates sprang to mind during the day…) – just a lot of life not going my way. I don’t much care for that!
And a bunch of do-overs (not fond of THAT either).
Little stuff. Pales in comparison to my friend’s cancer or my cat’s death. But those evoke grief which seems a nobler emotion than my litany of WTF all day long today.
However, it’s part of being human.
I just wish this emotion had a tiny, little, hardly noticeable walk-on role in this play. Make it a comedy or even a tragedy – but please not a boring sitcom and today felt like a 3rd rate boring sitcom all about our heroine’s petty foibles and frustrations.
But — one rosy outcome may be that for once in my life I may get to bed at a reasonable hour – mostly so I can let this day end sooner rather than later. So THERE, life! Take THAT!
