Justifiable Emotions

I am feeling knackered and low-spirited of late. Are these feelings justifiable? A tidbit of kvetching is on the agenda.

I am plumb worn out, emotionally and physically. And yes, I would enjoy a bit of cheese with my whine! (Perhaps a glass of wine is in order!)

Yes, I am feeling rather kvetchy these days, what with being sick for nearly a month during an already trying time. That said, yes again — I do feel justified in feeling knackered and low-spirited.

When "they" say a spring or summer cold hits one harder than a winter cold they are not kidding. This one lasted nearly a month and I am just now feeling good again — physically.

Of course, this means I now have the energy to get back to dealing with the emotional side of life things. I found myself in low spirits at the prospect of having to move, even more so when my original plan fell through. Now, I am planning to head back home to Ohio. Wherever I end up landing I will manage one way or another to keep a roof over the heads of me and my dog Valentino.

This past month or two has been truly tough with emotions running the gamut of good, bad, and ugly. However, my motivation to rise above this emotionally exhausting crisis is my love for my dog, the friends and strangers who are supporting me, and yes, my love of my family in Ohio.

I found a great quote on the World Prayers web site that pretty much says it all for me as I plan and work to make my life right in this journey. The site attributes the prayer to Confucius.

"To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right."

Though I may find myself feeling knackered along my way — I shall readily live with any regrets at the end of my life journey.

My topic today for the 26-Week ABC Challenge of emotions this week begins with letters "J, K, and L" — JUSTIFIABLE, KNACKERED, AND LOW-SPIRITED.
