I've had a tough time lately—all of my doing, of course. I am having a tough time accepting what it is. There is so much more I want to do in my life, but I feel stymied by work obligations. Sometimes my work can be downright boring, and when I try to shake things up, I don't feel that my efforts are acknowledged. So frustration sets in, then anger, then … suffering. Mine. My stomach gets all in a knot.
