Snagging Boots

All is good in the world as I merrily make my way through the day.

I’m at peace, everything’s running smoothly and then suddenly, and ALWAYS without warning I get ‘Troll Smacked‘!

Someone in a crappy mood or running on selfish fumes jumps up into my day and trashes it! It could be anyone – colleague, family or perfect stranger.

For myself personally, it is one of the areas I struggle the most – being taken by suprise. I generally always react badly. I say ‘yes’, when I really mean ‘no’, I say ‘no’ when I really mean ‘I’m not sure’, and I say ‘fuck right off’ when I really mean ‘please keep your problems to yourself’, (I’m such a lady).

I find that most times I have to re-learn old lessons a few times before they really stick, and this is no exception.

I need to remember that being ‘Troll Smacked’ is like fishing. There you are, as happy as punch, and you begin to reel in the perfect catch, but as it pops up out of the water it’s not a shiny fish.

It’s an old and scruffy boot. Usually one you’ve snagged a few times before.

‘Oh well, bummer’, you say to yourself and toss it back.

No fireworks, no drama – just toss it back, calmly.

and remember to whistle…

you can’t shout and whistle at the same time……

or can you?
