Yesterday, I had several little articles to write for work. I got them finished fairly quickly in the morning because I was anticipating having to be in a short movie they were filming in the museum yesterday. Luckily, I got out of having to be in the film. However, that meant I had very little to do yesterday afternoon. The worst thing about being really bored is that it can give me a headache which is what happened yesterday. Starting mid afternoon and lasting until I went to bed, the headache droned on. Sadly, it looks like today will be another unexciting day.

It was not penitence I sought, standing outside
the bedroom in the old apartment
where you had spent the night alone.
To bend, to kneel before some greater force—
that was no longer what I wished.
Clouds blew in from the coast, and I felt
the sun abandoning the window behind me,
making the bright walls suddenly colorless,
obscuring everything, for a moment,
that I wanted. When I finally entered,
I saw you still asleep—a wet strand
of hair tucked behind your ear, the husk
of your body—and lingered there for a minute,
before walking upstairs to shut the windows.
As I lay in bed, I’m wondering what the future holds this week. I have a couple of things that need to be written and a few meetings, but otherwise, who knows what’s going to happen. The funny thing is that I have an appointment to see a psychic medium on Friday. She will be doing a special program for us at the museum and we are going to meet with her to map things out.
Rejoice evermore. (KJV) ( 1 Thessalonians 5:16 )
Can you find happiness wherever you are in life? If so, this is a powerful lesson that will bless you throughout life. Otherwise, we will runaway from relationships, environments, jobs, or even cities to escape unhappiness. Ultimately we never deal with our unhappiness and carry it around to the next friendship, job, or marriage. It’s helpful to recognize joy, embracing contentedness, or stop comparisons that cause you to be dissatisfied with your life. Practice identifying your joy in life.
