Today you could use a prompt to write about chocolate!! HA! I ate the chocolate instead!! Nothing there to write about anymore!! LOL.....There were many prompts on this page in the book, but the THINGS THAT FRUSTRATE ME prompt was one that jumped off the page and spoke to me....Because I have been feeling a bit frustrated lately!! (So what else is new!!) and I need to sit and remind myself of the lessons that can be learned from the frustration...I mean, we all know the Count to 10 one that we learned as children (do we actually use that one often when we react from frustration?...NO, at least I can honestly say I do not) and then a friend of mine has the 24 HOUR Rule (sit on something for 24 hours and then react!! HA! this one is not one I use either) I am a quick reactor...some have even said I shoot first and ask questions later...I am not sure WHY I do that...but I do....SO today, with this prompt I am reminding myself that when things frustrate me I DO have the option of not reacting so quickly.....I DO have the option to learn the lessons that frustration can teach me....I DO have the option to be very aware and grow....and when all else fails...
EAT THE CHOCOLATE!!
