I tend to hibernate in my room sometimes and this is why. . .
There is a lot of crap out there! I had this strong desire for a Burger King hamburger and so went out earlier to find one. Eight traffic lights later I was standing in the BK order area watching four very miserable human beings try to produce food for ten or twelve very irritated customers.
So I left. I discovered this new place just around the corner called Cheeseburger Cheeseburger. And they had a cheerful group inside and no waiting so I ordered a cheeseburger and some fries. I even had a nice talk with my neighbor who had also wandered in there.
And then the food came and it was. . . tasteless! I suppose it was hamburger meat but who could really say? And the fries were tasteless too. The texture was different but otherwise you could have served the fries inside the buns and nobody would have known the difference.
So I returned home and laid down for a short while trying to figure out why I’m so frustrated.
No answers. So then I decided to read Robin’s latest post in her blog Naked In Eden. She has written a wonderful series of posts about discovering a very positive mental attitude and way of life. It’s not a philosophy or a religion or anything like that.
At one point, apparently, she was running around the woods in her birthday suit having a great time. This was not here in Virginia, of course, because you would probably get arrested by a park ranger doing that here. This was in Australia. I can’t wait to read the book about her adventures in the wild when it comes out.
Because Robin is not frustrated!! She’s a very happy person and always laughing and having fun. There are some videos on Youtube demonstrating the truthfulness of these assertions.
So we are friends in any case although we are so very different. She leaves the most wonderful comments for bloggers when she reads their comments and their blogs.
I try to think of something to say and become frustrated.
I wrote a post last night that was so bad I had to get up in the middle of the night and rewrite it. But now I’m listening to the Beatles and it’s actually helping a little. Because some of these songs are so great. And we have been listening to them for forty years now.
Some of us have been listening to them that long in any case. And some of us have been dealing with anxiety and frustration for a lot longer than that!!
It’s time for a long vacation!!
But I am on vacation. . . a permanent one!
God! Is that frustrating or what!!
