This is not about the famed book.
What this is about is the expectations that are put upon us by ourselves and others. It’s about fulfilling our duties on the job and in our personal lives. Whether it be making quota or making a home there are demands that each of us have in life. There is a saying that no good deed goes unpunished and I tend to agree with that. With those expectations stress comes with it and we know what that does to our hearts and souls. Some folks have expectations of us that we cannot meet. No wonder why people turn to any number of things to help soothe their souls.
Great expectations aren’t great for everyone…don’t you think?
I believe science and faith can live together. Many people of faith have practiced science and medicine as a devotion to their creator fulfilling a calling to make the world a better place. Just because you are of science does not mean you are against religion and vice versa. Being good stewards of creation and managing its resources requires a good scientific mind that uses the gifts that God gave.
I am finding that I need writing to soothe my soul. Blogging is like breathing for me and it helps me connect with myself as well as others.
I am a careful blend of religion, family, friends, pop culture, media, personal influences and the weird stuff that I find amusing or fascinating. Oh I cuss a little too and I like beer.
Most of you are like me too!
Am I not good enough? Were my metrics not what you needed or expected. You took something out of me? I am not what I was because of you. Today I do my part but under a cloud of doubt. If it wasn’t for you I would be happy. Sometimes your best isn’t good enough for some people. That is life. Piss off.
(This is a creative writing exercise where I am sharing anger at a situation in my life.)
