Trying to avoid some doom-and-gloom feelings...

"No matter what the issue is, don’t try to justify why you don’t feel good. And don’t try to justify why you should feel differently. Don’t try to blame whatever it is you think the reason is that’s keeping you from feeling good. All of that is wasted effort. Just try to feel better right now." ~Abraham-Hicks 

I've been in a gloomy mood for most of this weekend. I've got some final school work to do and that's the main cause... it's a mystery to me my ability to sit and write anything except school work-type-stuff. I can write sensible and most times pretty great reports for work in any kind of time-crunch. I can write blog posts out of a barest hint of an idea. Why, dear Goddess, can I not find the words to finish this school work? Aargh. Hand-in date for this stuff - April 26th - 2 days before my birthday. It really needs to get done. Soon. For my peace of mind and emotional well-being. 

I'm also in a bit of a mood because of my upcoming birthday... it's weird - I'm usually very happy about my birthday. Am not sure what it is but this year seems to be one of great self-evaluation. What do I want for myself (and why - I can't just leave it at the initial question - there must be some sort of rationale). 

My head aches and my eyes ache and it's hot. I am bummy. Bleh. 

On the upside?
  • I'm learning to make jewellery - which is something I've been wanting to do for some time - attended the 2nd class yesterday... go me!
  • I got ice-cream - Cheesecake with waffle cone mixed in - bless you Cold Stone Creamery... and bless you mom & M for going with me. 
  • Chef Nate Appleman won the Chopped All-Stars competition - yay! 
  • Found this site through stumbling - it has amused me. It analyses your past life by using the date you were born in this life... it may be bogus but I am still amused... this is what I got:

"Your past life diagnosis:

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern South Japan around the year 1050. Your profession was that of a builder of roads, bridges and docks.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:Person with huge energy, good in planning and supervising. If you were just garbage-man, you were chief garbage-man.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:You are bound to learn to understand other people and to meet all difficulties of life with a joyful heart. You should help others by bringing them a spirit of joy.

Do you remember now?"

I must try to remember to help others by bringing them a spirit of joy (um :s .. how?). I've always felt that I was once in Japan. No comment on the chief garbage-man (woman) position... lol 

Trying to be on the happy side. Wishing you a positive week ahead.

peace,
Ren
