Irritations

Today, my Daily OM reading is called "The Upside of Irritation". At first I thought, upside of irritation that just cannot be right. Then I read, then I thought. There has been an upside to every irritation in my life when I think about it. As my readers know, my debt card was compromised & charged up. YIKES!! That was an irritation to say the least. It consumed my life for days, & I felt like crap. Got more than a little depressed. Wondered what was the use...work hard someone steals it, get clean & sober your thyroid quits working & you go from 125 lbs to...well we won't go there, go through intense therapy to figure out why you are who you are & you still get depressed. What a crock!! (I had a very bad two weeks). But the debit card fiasco got settled. The bank was cooperative. I got a new debit card. My money was returned. Sparky was very attentive when he figured out I was close to a major meltdown ( & while he is a wonderful man, hand holding & showing that he is understanding is not his strong suit-he does not express his feelings--me on the other hand can be a screaming meme LOL). He offered me money to tide me over which I did not accept, I just used his gasoline card to buy a tankful to get me to work. I did not go back to my old ways to handle the crap life can dish out-14 years was just too much to flush. Oh yeah, & my sewer backed up for the second time in two weeks. It is now fixed too. I have digressed, but back to my original thoughts. Irritations teach us about ourselves, who we are & what we are made of. I am a survivor, I "fix" things, I take care of my own problems. So, from these latest irritations I have learned things do work out ok, just because your toilet backs up your life is not crap, & you can deal with all of it without going off the deep end. Another growth experience for the hippie chick.






Blessed be...

I was just hearing on a money show last night that your debit card is protected, so glad your money was returned.

Wow. Too many times I've ventured off the deep end, and usually over piling up minor irritations. It takes a long time to learn not to do that - assuming "learning" this is not a lifelong journey. Such a great post. Loved it.
