Taking the Trash Out

Falling short. That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. Frustrated, too, by things that are out of my control. Through my past experiences I have become much better at rolling with events out of my control. Lately, I feel like I’m falling off my wheels more than being along for the ride.

Last night my frustration was leaking right out of my eyes! Most of it was frustration with myself. Pig-farmer isn’t really used to this side of me. He said I am being too hard on myself.

Getting back up, I suppose, is what is important. So today, that is what I will do. I will start by taking the trash out. Literally and figuratively. I will quit thinking of the frustrations and stay busy doing. I know me … I won’t get “enough” done, but I will look around and take note of what I accomplish.

Every time the trash gets full, I will take it kick it right out to the curb. Literally and figuratively.

    Isn’t it amazing, though, how a little cry helps the frustration leave and it’s almost like you can fully breathe again..?? Good blog, as always, Marla…
