Ella is getting her summer fur….more importantly she’s getting rid of her winter fur. That means hair, tons, oodles, massive amounts of hair. I mean enough hair to make 3 more dogs. I brush her everyday, sweep constantly, but I cannot get ahead. And when I am most frustrated, I think, it’s just hair and it will end. At school, when I am frustrated over a particular lesson, a challenging student, lack of time to do what I want to do, I think- it’s just _________ and it will end well. Sometimes, frustration is the universe telling you to take a step back, regroup and try again. I don’t often dwell in the negative. To me, there’s no point. You have to look at the positive- to see where the lesson is, what can you learn from this and always forgive. Negativity saps your creativity and rarely leads to productivity. To paraphrase the words of “Butterflies are Free”, there are none so frustrated as those who will not reflect.
