This morning was rough, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and I had a friend tell me I’ve been too negative lately. While I know I won’t get kicked out or left behind, I am sure fearful of it. I really want to move to Canada, but I see why older people say they don’t miss their younger years – it’s a lot of anxiety and sometimes heartbreak. My cousin and his girlfriend are moving to London; his job is transferring him, she’s studying and will continue work at her job. Both are in finance. Let me tell you, I am jealous. While I don’t want to live in London, I sure wish I had the finances to move to Canada. I know rushing (and being rushed by people around me) isn’t the answer, but I wish it was my season. Some seasons come earlier for others, some are later.
Today was our company picnic at my full-time job. Shetana let me ride with her and Ms. Ernestine and I was grateful. The picnic was nice and my co-workers thought of me by bringing some gluten-free things for me to enjoy; I brought some gluten-free stuff too. One of my Asian co-workers said to me, “I remembered that you are gluten-free and picked out this salad for you.” It made me verklempt and cheered me up.
I’m thankful that dad brings me to the train in the morning and for all both parents do for me, when mom isn’t threatening to move or kick me out. What are you thankful for?
