So, I was having a in-depth discussion with the good wife today about choosing to do things that ultimately caused me frustration. I’m not talking about choosing to put my socks on, or choosing to get my daughter ready for school. I mean, choosing to do something or go somewhere that I know will make me frustrated and even angry.
I guess there are many who would say that going to work is much like that, but that doesn’t apply to me. I guess I have been thinking a lot lately about doing things I want to do, not things I feel I have to do. Life is full of choices, but if you can see a pattern to them that you don’t think is beneficial, then isn’t it time to change your choices?
I’m I learning to place myself and my family first, or am I just getting cantankerous in my old age? I’m not against helping people or even being there when people need me, in fact, that makes me feel like I have made a difference. It is just that does the sense of accomplishment get outweighed by the negatives?
I guess this is more of a spiritual question than anything else, and I’m sure the correct path will be showed to me eventually.
