Exasperation ... and Gratitude

Having just spent an entire morning dedicated to resolving a burocratic issue, that probably in another country, or even in another part of this country, would be taken care of smoothly, that has - over the hours - become a bit of a nightmare, and noticing my rising exasperation with workers and burocrats and large corporation employees (the latter two of which are never my favorite cup of tea), I decided to put one of my favorite tools into practice.

I looked out of the window, filled my eyes with the beauty I could see there, took a deep breath, and allowed myself to flood with gratitude for such beauty directly around me. In so doing, I could immediately feel a lowering of the exasperation, a loosening of something inside, an inner freedom from the negative place I had landed myself in due to the exasperation, and a general improvement of the state of my well-being. It was really that easy.

Just thought I'd let you know.
