A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint


Posted by Pepper on January 12, 2013

I don’t have much to say today. My mind is foggy. My heart is heavy. I am tired. I am unwell. Nothing seems right. My work, it is killing me. I know I never really wrote about the harsh difficulties I face. I don’t know if I ever will. There is so much to say, yet, I don’t know how to say it. I deal with deadly toxic matter on a daily basis. Some days are unbearable. Why am I still here? I don’t know.

Mint and I recently faced a massive disappointment. We really began to question one of our past decisions. Did we make the wrong choice earlier? I don’t want to be cryptic, so I won’t talk about it now. Right now, I feel like we are in the midst of a very turbulent ride.

I am scared of the different possibilities. I am tired of the unknown. I want this to end soon. I want certainty and clarity. Please send us your good wishes, people. All you lurkers too.

These are times in which I remind myself, atleast I have my loved ones healthy and safe. I don’t have to worry about where my next meal will come from. So with that thought, I will try and smile.

    My sincerest best to you as you go through this difficult time….for me, if my work situation is difficult, other areas of my life sometimes seem to fall apart. We just spend so much of our time at work, with work-mates, supervisors and others that there has to be something redeeming or positive in the work relationship for us to cling to. I hope that things get into a better place for you (and Mint).

    Here is a lurker coming out in open just to send good wishes. Don’t worry and keep patience. Things will sort out soon and whatever happens will be for good. Have been in the same situation as you with hubby in same school( possibly, guessing here though) and me away waiting for some kind of certainty.

    I’m absolutely in the same set of mind at the moment, so many confusions, major confusions over past decisions, professional life is in a big mess, and looking in every direction for the ray of hope and clarity…
    So I completely understand your state and my best wishes for you and Mint, I wish you the best and may your past decisions on which you have a doubt, prove to be good for you… Good luck dear and keep faith, that’s what I’m advised too…:)

  20. Chin Up, Pepper!! Things will only get better. Loadsa good wishes coming your way !!

    Pepper dear -you are very young and life is very complex.
    Do not worry -there is Bhagavaan who looks after the tiniest creature in this Brahmaanda and so He will never let anyone down.Just Be!
    Yes -it is easier said than done but my PRAARTHANA is there for you.

    Don’t worry Pepper. There’s a lot of everything stored for everyone. ‘This shall pass too’. And Mints there with you! The biggest satisfaction.

    Lurker commenting for the first time…Part of being an adult is having to make decisions constantly. I am close to 40 and I still struggle with it. But with experience, I am learning that if you make a mistake, it is best to let it go rather than keep rehashing it. You also learn to prioritize and let go, things which are important (but less important in the overall scheme of things). Hope you feel a lot better soon.
