What Is It About Mondays?

AnguishHaving had a very quiet Sunday, today has been like having a bucket of cold water thrown over me. Over fifty emails waiting in my inbox, our email system then deciding to have a long lunch hour and various other problems have meant that I feel like nothing really got done today.

Of course, it’s always busier on a Monday, with the weekend issues to deal with, but today has felt like swimming in treacle. Good job I have my practice to fall back on, poison into medicine and all that. Remembering back to how I used to be before Nichiren made me feel a lot better.

The day is nearly over, and everything is back on an even keel again. Nobody got eaten by bears and my inbox will be much less full in the morning. So it’s just a case of thinking happy thoughts and letting the waves of anguish lap gently against the solid foundations of calm and reason.

And just to put it all into perspective, I know from personal experience, that it is a lot better to have too much work to do, than have none at all. A little gratitude for the good things in life makes the bad things melt away, but it’s easy to say that now.
