These past few days and weeks my morale and energy has been on a downward death spiral. I blame it on work more than anything else, but it's probably also because my last vacation was in May of 2005. Plus the long winters of New England have a numbing effect- sometimes I wonder why I don't just move to California or Georgia or Florida, places where the outdoors isn't off-limits for 6 months a year. My recent hand injury playing soccer was another buzz-kill which frustrates me. At work, I am managing 8 different construction projects totaling about $6 million, and each of them has a team of owners, contractors and architects which I must cater to and keep thanklessly satisfied. Needless to say, each day is an exercise in the art of swallowing pride and tolerating incompetence. Co-workers? Let's not even go there- my teeth and fists clench at the thought of them. You know, it's a small miracle that I have no chemical dependences- no smoking or drinking or pain killers or pot or heroine or cocaine; not even herbal tea. My highs and lows are all-natural. On the bright side, perhaps these are the times when we need to be counting our blessings. It's shamefully easy to forget how lucky we are. I swear you people in California and Florida had better be happy and giddy year round. You don't know how much it sucks to get bundled up just to take out the trash.
Spring fever gives me a natural high; it opens the flood gates of dopamine. Spring and summer couldn't be here soon enough!
