It's tuesday morning and I cannot seem to think straight. I don't know what to do with myself but I know I gotta do something. I know what needs to be done, I also know what should be done and what should have been done by now. I just don't feel like doing much of anything so far. The truth is nothing has been done!
We all have these moments from time to time and every one has their way of dealing with it. I used to fret and beat myself up over stuff like this, but with the years, I have mellowed out and have developed my own way of dealing with such things.
I remember vaguely a serenity prayer that goes something like this:
God please grant me the courage to change the things I can,
The serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
It is very easy during times like this when you don't know what to do with yourself and you eventually become bored and then somehow end up embroiled in some palaver. Trouble, 'cause the day started in uncertainty then led to boredom and then to other things. Suddenly, there is excitement, but not the kind you want. I have lived these situations and could write reams of stories, but not today.
I am kind of using this blog to check myself and not make those errors of the past where boredom led to excitement but not the kind I bargained for. A word they say, is good enough for the wise and the best thing right now, is to get my behind to the library and do some research that needs doing.
I wanna stick to what is important, immerse myself in words, so that at times like these instead of saying "bloody hell", I can say "bloggy hell" and instead of being a "bloody fool", I can be a "Bloggy fool".
Gotta go get ready for library.
