If karma exists, it doesn’t like how relaxed I was last week.
It has taken no time at all for life to revert back to the grey, windy, rain-soaked grind of everyday life. This week has seen a combination of crap decisions at work, late hours at the office, crowded angry commutes, and awful weather conditions that have soaked London in heavy rain, cold winds, and even flooding in some areas.
I know I’m being pedantic. I know these are first world problems and that I shouldn’t care about them. But I do care. Too much. Perhaps that’s my problem. I wish I could stop these things from stressing me out, but I can’t flick a switch and turn it all off.
I once wrote a post about trying to cope with this stuff. It has since become my bible. I’d love to be able to go to the gym more and work this stuff out of my system. But there is so little free time in the evenings due to work/commuting. Even worse, every time I look at social media I’m hit with motivational quotes that make me feel bad for letting circumstances get the better of me.
Awesome. I’ll just stop working and go. Who needs a job, right? They’re only bills.
Good advice, but it doesn’t make the trains run on time.
Erm… its not working. I’m still stuck on a train platform after a long day at the office, and I still feel like shit.
Does it? I happen to like being comfortable. Its one of the reasons I work so hard. What’s the point of working hard at life if you can’t relax and enjoy it? Peace of mind, happiness, feeling content, being comfortable… these are my life goals.
So while I’m on the subject of motivational quotes… here’s one I actually do like.
Now these are words to live by. And I’m trying. I try hard everyday to be thankful for my health, happiness, and everything good in my life despite the negative circumstances that surround us.
I sincerely hope you all find the peace that you work hard for, too.
