It's been a rough time to be a thinky person.
I mean, between Gaza, Israel, Ukraine, Russia, Ebola in Africa, the erosion of personal rights by the supreme court, the invasion of a church by anti-abortion activists, the multitude of trailers coming out of Comic Con and my complete lack of chocolate in this office....
Now, there is little on that list that is directly related to me. Except the lack of chocolate. I can fix that particular problem.
I can't do much about Ebola, or Pro-Russian Separatists, and I can't bring peace to the Middle East.
There's only so much I can do.
I need to remind myself that I can only do what I can do. I can try to get my household chores done. I can weed the front yard. (Anyone want to help me? It's out of control!!) I can run. I can take the puppy on walks.
Things I shouldn't do? Read the comments on ANYTHING. And stay up past midnight thinking about all the things in my life that I could have done better.
That never helps anyone.
If you need me, I'll be home, avoiding the news.
