Patience Grasshopper….ugh…I’m trying, I’m trying…okay, honestly?Some days, I’m tired of trying. Some days I just want to let loose and spew a vile and nasty string of words at the world just to get it off my chest. I wanna get mad and throw things and hear glass shatter. I wanna scream so loud they can hear me in the next county. I want small children to tremble in my presence….okay, maybe not that extreme but you see where I am going here.
When you try to walk a path of unconditional love it seems like, when you least expect it, someone shots an RPG (for those that don’t watch NCIS that is a rocket propelled granade) right at your ass. While your busy holding the door open and saying “have a nice day” and “may peace be with you” there is someone stepping on your toes as they scurry past with not so much as an “Excuse me” or “Pardon me”.
People suck…. , maybe not all people but some really do. At least a few do.
Aghhhhhh but Grasshopper : ” To be able under ALL circumstances to practice five things constitutes perfect virtue; these five things are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness”….says Confucius.
Okay…people don’t suck. They just walk different paths. I know. I know. Every encounter is a lesson no matter how big or small. Well then some lessons SUCK!!!!! There, I said it. I feel better now. Can’t you tell? Don’t you see the smile on the grasshoppers face!
I love each and every one of you
