“What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it. Don't complain.” ― Maya Angelou, Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now
Allergies are driving me crazy. Seems like I have struggled with them since January.  The symptoms seem to change slightly and occasionally I get a week without problems and wham a week in misery.  Ragweed right now but cannot figure out what is in the environment inside our house that may be triggering this. 
Sometimes symptoms are of something deeper maybe spiritual in nature.  Being spiritual aware of His presence in my life, I know there are things before me I simply do not see. Transformations take place and we stay ignorant of what is happening unless we become aware of His touch. Has to do with our obsessive need to be in control of our plans. Making lemonade out of lemons is something I learned from my mother. It is essential to our well being to not allow negativity to draw us down. The best is bring into your life people and experiences that encourage you to share the Spirit that is within you. Opportunities abound through out the day, but if you are like me, your head is not always where it should be. 
Take the time today to connect with others. Appreciate the God and the good in the other people you share with today. Take extra care to try and find out something new about someone you think you know well today. You might be pleasantly surprised. We all hide many things inside and we do not share them with the world. Heck, why not do something unexpected today and out of your comfort brave. Do something today you have always wanted to do but never thought you could or should. I have a list of want to dos.
"I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek to do not my own will but the will of him who sent me."--John 5:30
