rocks and pebbles

My last post was a little heavy on the brightsiding. Sometimes I get carried away with focusing on positives that I don't recognize when I just sound boastful. I've since made some edits to it - took out a few lines that didn't really need to be in there, and put in a few that really should have. So if anyone happened to read it and found it off-putting, don't blame you, so did I.

I'm discouraged right now, because I was sick last week and I'm still feeling like hell, which I don't understand. Randomly, I feel ok during the days, but my fever comes back at night. I'd been on a really good track of getting things done, but the past week I've barely found the energy for the basic stuff. Ugh. Really hoping I feel well again soon.

What I'd say to someone to whom I can't really say anything else, because I already said everything I had to say: If you decide you want to move the boulder that's in the way, I'll happily clear away the rest of the rocks and pebbles. It was a good path.

Sometimes I think happiness in life is more about the ingredients than the recipe itself. Some people have more cinnamon. Some people have more sugar. Decide what will make you happy, and fill your cabinet with those things. But don't stress over the portions, because they'll wax and wane on their own anyway: you can't always have everything you need, stocked to full. Try to keep an eye out for when you're getting low on something, and make an effort to pick some of it up.
