From Grumpy To Gratitude: Life In The First World.

Grumpy

Grumpy the dwarf looking very ‘fratched’!

This is going to be a very short post as I am suffering with another bout of the bladder infection that has been hanging around now for over a year. Can’t remember the last time I took antibiotics but there are times when they are extremely helpful and this is one of those occasions. It’s left me feeling ‘fratched’, a term I borrow from the fantasy novel I am reading at the moment. Somehow it really captures the way I am feeling, even the sound of the word conveys just how scratchy I do feel.

There are many aspects of first world civilisation that I find extremely frustrating and much which is downright unfair. Particularly when it comes to those marginalised and vulnerable groups that are usually targeted by those who are allegedly supposed to be looking out for the welfare of everyone in the community. But at the same time I am full of deep gratitude for the fact that I am able to go and see a doctor when I need to and be bulk billed. The antibiotics were around $13 so all in all I am receiving the care I need at a minimal cost.

So for this moment I am going to let go of my concerns over what is happening in the world and simply be grateful for the many wonderful blessings that I do have. I have my Beloved, loving family and friends, and I live in a succession of beautiful places while paying minimal rent. The work that I do is meaningful to me and makes a positive contribution to those in not only my own immediate community but to the rest of Australia too. When my online readings take off that may well extend to many other places all over the world. Whether I am operating as a psychic reader or as a crisis counsellor, my work is all about helping others to navigate life.

And that is something worth doing! When not engaged in these kinds of activities I will do my best to keep appreciating my life in the Magic Kingdom. Lets all be children and keep remembering to look for the wonder and magic that is inherent in life on this beautiful place known as Planet Earth!
