I’ve been glass-half-empty lately. And it’s so not me really. I usually am pretty positive and can find something good in anything that happens, but lately not so much. I need to change this and soon, because I feel ungrateful, spoiled and self-centered. It can’t all be about me and what I want, I know this, and yet I feel let down, somehow, by life.
I have so much to be grateful for, the people in my life who love me and support me, the commodities I have and the freedom I have to choose whatever I want to do, and the health and smarts that allow me to accomplish mostly anything. So why go around with the little black cloud over my head? A cloud, by-the-way, it seems, only I can see.
I’m hopeful though. I know I have a positive, happy nature, so I’m hopeful it will kick back-in soon. Also, the semester is almost over, which means this is my last stretch to get the two manuals I’ve been working on ready to hand-in in their final version and then forget about this work altogether. I’m looking forward to the holiday break, and I think the whole getting away to a warm place will help tons. We will see. Things will get better. They always do.
