Stuck. Irritated. That describes a lot of things but today it is a condition that I find myself in.
I had a lovely salad for lunch filled with kale and cabbage and brussels sprouts and other lovely items. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Until an hour later.
I had a small piece of cabbage or something stuck between two of my bottom molars. I knew exactly what had happened and it was driving me nuts until the little flosser came to the rescue.
A tiny little piece of food caused me great anxiety and pain until it was removed and once it was gone life was wonderful again.
I think there is a lesson there. About getting stuck. So often I get stuck in a mood, stuck on a bad idea, stuck on feeling angry and upset about something and I neglect to take the right action to right the situation. Those situations can wear me down and zap me of my joy. What if I just used one of those flossers to eradicate all of that from my life?
My multi purpose “flosser” would have to be able to smooth troubled waters, repair rifts, turn a blind eye, see beyond the problem and soothe hurt feelings. It would be able to see beyond the surface, delve into what the real issue was and provide a positive action and solution. It would be a tool of love and acceptance. It would have healing capabilities.
So the next time I get something pesky caught in between those molars I am going to be thankful for the irritation because I have the tool to use to do something about it. I will also be grateful that most of the irritations in my life are small ones that can be overlooked. What about you?
