I’ve been grumpy, very grumpy. Grumpy at the State of CA for the mess we are in. Education should never be cut – ever – and what is all this nonsense about trying to get back taxes from products we’ve received from out of state? Talk about a waste of time for everyone. Seriously, can’t you find another way to find some cash? Maybe start by moving our legislators to part-time? I’ve been grumpy about the economy in general – can we speed up the “recovery process” please? Frustrated that I can’t get enough done in my day – I’d have to cut out sleep to do that and no one wants me that grumpy. So, to combat my bad attitude I spent time finding some inspiration.
I started by reading. What did I pick to read? – The modern classic, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I’ve read it before, but it’s a great story about following your dream. I won’t ruin the book for you by going over the plot, but seriously, it’s inspirational – get it. So, that helped, a bit, but I was still slightly cranky. Maybe because I’m so bogged down in the weeds I can’t see the dream?
So, I got practical and went old school and browsed through a bunch of Harvey Mackay articles. The guy is good. His advice is practical, simple, and just what I needed. So, instead of dwelling in the weeds, I’m going to get over my grumpy self, take some control, and get back to my happy, successful life.
Whew – thank goodness that’s over. There is only so much grumpy this gal can handle.
