The 7 Deadly Sins:
I know I'm guilty of pretty much everything on the list at least once a day. Sloth is probably my weakest area, though I'm hardly a pig, followed by Anger. When I'm angry, however, it's usually just stress and/or a touch of the green-eyed monster. Gluttony is a problem on those days when I'm really stressed and tend to binge on comfort foods. Thank God weight gain isn't also a problem. I'm really, really pleased to say that I'm rarely, except during full moons, guilty of Envy, Lust, Greed, or Pride. Not too much. That's not prideful of me to say, is it?
Things tend to change at warp speed. Sometimes, change is good; other times, not so much. When changes are for the better, of course, it can be uplifting; indeed, life-changing. But -- the not so good changes which require decisive action, quick reflexes, and a reliable Plan B are also life-altering. The key is to find a balance between the two and, no matter what happens, make the best of it. When your Yin counter-balances your Yang, life is (okay, can be) good and your Feng Shui is darn near perfect.
Mine needs work. Next year, I'm going to concentrate on working harder on that because, let me tell you, this year has purely sucked. Who ever would have thought so much bad luck could be packed into one measly little year? Not that there haven't been good times, because there have, but the 2010 mojo has been sadly lacking. I'm going to try to go and sin a little less and ignore that little voice in my head singing, "If you wanna get to heaven, you gotta raise a little hell." Oh, no, wait -- that's bass-ackwards. I'm going to sin more. You never know what's going to happen next, so why not live in the moment and enjoy it? Space junk could hit me in the head tomorrow, so yeah, I'm sinning.
