Ever have the feeling that stuff planned sometimes goes awry? You know what I mean. You’ve got the whole day ahead of you. For once, you even sit down and make a list of stuff you want to get done.
And, then, Wham! Bam! It goes as suddenly as it comes. We’ve all been there. A day full of possibilities, and then it’s gone.
Call it fate! Call it Ashmael! Call it whatever you want. Whatever it is. It comes when it’s least expected, and then you’ve got to reorganize your entire game plan all over again.
When that happens, what do you do?
Scream and shout! It helps to bring down your frustration level. You don’t want to descend into madness or store your pent-up emotions into your stomach. Bad place. The rates are high especially in the long run when you get serious stomach issues. Belly’s off limits.
Throw a tantrum! Well, you could. How many of us have seen parents and other respectable adults jumping up and down, waving their arms, throwing plates, pens, and paper at their significant other. Hmm, that’s what I thought, too. So, screaming, ranting, and raving are definitely out.
Release your inner demon and destroy everything in sight. Gets to be a tad expensive over time. Keep the inner demon contained.
Common sense. Work it out on paper. Work it on with the computer by typing. Another way of bringing down your inner hysteria level.
Or repeat after me. It is what it is. One day out of several thousand. Take the bull by the horns and stare it down. Go outside and take a walk even if it’s in circles, pacing hospital corridors, running barefoot on the grass. Whatever works, do it. After all, life is full of complications and upsets. Don’t let life rule you. Otherwise, all bets are off in regards to your health, sanity, and respectability!
