Me, myself, and I

Ever since getting back from Easter weekend, work has been quite sucky. There is much to be said about work, but a blog is probably not the best place. It doesn't bode well for me that I've had such a terrible temper lately, little things just get to me and I feel like exploding. I haven't yet, although I have expressed a ton of frustration. I'd appreciate some prayer.

I feel like I don't have much to say right now, and I think it's because work seems to suck the life out of me. One day I thought reading might cheer me up, so I borrowed a couple of books from the library. The first book, "Happiness Sold Separately" just depressed me further. It's about a couple who have infertility problems and turn away from each other - the husband has an affair, the wife withdraws into herself. There's much more to the book, but I dunno, it didn't stick with me as a great book and instead, made me feel sad. I have a second book to read, so I suppose I'll post when I've finished that.

"Can You Keep a Secret" by Sophie Kinsella was pretty funny. I didn't like "Confessions of a Shopaholic," but I read the "Secret" first and I laughed pretty hard at some points. Also a light, but provocative book is "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" by Mark Haddon.

Prayer for you is that you will be able to discern the source of that anger/frustration.

And yes, if I have time to spam about playoffs in the middle of my craziest/do-or-die week, I certainly have time to pray.

Some time ago, i was searching for a good definition for "Happyness", just a few words to fit in a sometimes non-familiar concept for many of us. I was searching for a racional meaning and i was thinking for a long time that happyness like a permanent state of mind, was a myth.
Now i know that it's not about emotions or feelings, you can be happy in the middle of a storm, or even in the annoying atmosphere of ambition and lack-of-understanding predisposition of an office (like in my case).
For me happyness is equal to success, and my definition of success is "being in the center of GOD's will"

I recomend "The Pursuit of Happyness", is not a book, but ...oh God what a beautiful movie...

Praying for you... for sure!

be still... smile!


ps: Im so sorry for my bad english :S

My book recommendations:

1) Jostein Gaarder's "The Orange Girl" - it's a quick read and I always always recommend it...you can't not love this book.

2) Ruth Ozeki's "My year of meats", just chosen for this year's "One Book, One Vancouver"! My favourite book ever...I'll blog about it shortly.

love you!

i hated Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, simply because of the "heroine's" inability to control her finance and lying.
however, you may enjoy Kinsella's "Undomestic Goddess". the protagonist is a 20-something attorney who doesn't really like her job (sounds familiar?) but don't worry, the story gets better. =) it's chick lit, afterall.
hope you can find a book that can cheer you up.
you're in my thoughts and prayers.
