Why me?

You know, I was all prepared to write a peevesome post about how the medical system is goofy, and forms shouldn't be sent here and there, and I shouldn't have to schedule this, someone else should...

Deep breath. The world is not out to get me. No matter how skewed I think my life is, someone has a far more skewed life than me. It's always important to stop and put things in perspective. I've been inconvenienced. I haven't been injured, my health is reasonably good, and I'm not starving, in danger, or worried for my life.

There are so many annoyances in the world we can't control: the weather, bureaucracy, politics. I just have to keep reminding myself that if I can't control a thing, then just deal with it and move on. Don't let it take over your day.

Deep breath ... think of writing, and relaxing, and enjoying yourself ... deep breath.

The world is fine. Some of its inhabitants cause problems.

Hi JL,
My 17 year old daughter has a t-shirt that says, "Keep calm and carry on."
