Waking up furious...

Have you ever had one of those mornings when you wake up...roll over...peacefully take a deep breath...and then as thoughts slowly start to filter into your waking get slightly annoyed...then ever so miffed...and then it all snowballs into outright anger? It's amazing to me that this can occur in the matter of minutes. Literally one second your taking a lovely deep breath...seemingly content that all is right with the world...but then reality stealthly yet quickly creeps on in. Annoying as hell I say!

Anyway...this morning was obviously one of those mornings. FURIOUS I say...FURIOUS.

My anger is directed at other people's perspective...or rather...their lack there of. So as my search for coherant thoughts...I began my research on the word PERSPECTIVE. I had to decide between 2 'definitions' as to which I would follow:

1. Perspective (cognitive), one's "point of view", the choice of a context for opinions, beliefs and experiences

2. Perspective (psychological), or wisdom

*actually there were a total of 5 to pick from...but for my current focus...pharmacoeconomics, literature and the way in which objects appear to the eye or in drawings just didn't apply :)

Basically doing an e-nee-me-nee-mi-nee-mo...I decided to follow:

Perspective (psychological), or wisdom
"knowledge, understanding, experience, discretion, and intuitive understanding, along with a capacity to apply these qualities well towards finding solutions to problems. In many traditions, the terms wisdom and intelligence have somewhat overlapping meanings; in others they are arranged hierarchically, with intelligence being necessary but not sufficient for wisdom."

A few words jumped off my computer screen: experience, intuitive understanding and solutions.

Experience ~~ I personally define 'experience' as learning by doing. It's how one gains experience. And in order to fully experience something one needs to absorb and grasp a concept or a lesson by DOING.

Intuitive Understanding ~~ I believe that everyone has Intuition...but what many people lack is how to understand what their intuition is trying to tell them. Where does it come from...mainly by experience. Your inner voice is saying "HEY...remember when you did this and that happened..." is related to DOING.

Solutions ~~ Do you want to solve whatever issue is at hand? or do you want to "ignore it so it will go away"? One's ability to solve problems or even their desire to solve problems is directly tied to DOING. Sitting around and yapping does nothing in creating solutions to problems. The only way to solve a problem is to get up and DO something.

So what does this all have to do with my furious mind this morning??? I'm furious with the LACK of Perspective that surrounds many of us. Meaning ~ I'm furious with the LACK of DOING.

If you want to get something done...DO IT. Don't sit and talk about it...and then in turn whine about what you haven't done. Bitch, moan and groan allllll you long as you DO. Otherwise...quite frankly...would you please SHUT THE FUCK UP!
