My Prejudice and Prayer

Recently I was confronted with the realization I am prejudiced against a certain class of individuals. Am I proud of it? No.

But the holiday season really pushes my fear front and center. It seems like everyone and their Momma is out shopping. That means more populated stores.

I’ll be in Publix minding my own business. Trying to decide what sushi plate to buy. Then there they are. You can tell the worst ones by their hair and kids.

I never judge a book by its cover.

Unless the book has a bob hairstyle, a kid on the dance team, just got back from a PTA meeting, and almost runs me over with their buggy.

People who walk in the store like they own the place. Completely cold to the welfare of others. With a frigid look that just yells, “I will choke you to death right here in this Publix if you come between me and my son’s peanut-free peanut butter.”

Or they give you an empty, dead inside glance as they buy cosmetics for a daughter that is one house party away from being on Teen Mom.

MEpiphany

Due to the craziness of the start of Fall Semester, I missed my appointment with the psychiatrist.

Things That Make Me Happy

In a recent post I made a list of 5 things that make me sad. But the Lord is good and has given me an abundance of things that make me happy.

For every one thought or memory that brings me pain, there are two activities that bring me joy. I call it my Depression Prevention List.

  1. Blogging
  2. Bible Study
  3. Couponing
  4. Homemaking and Interior Design
  5. Jewelry Crafting
  6. Journaling
  7. Pinterest
  8. Puzzles and Word Games
  9. Reading
  10. Writing Poetry

Just making this list has me feeling all warm and fuzzy. Or maybe it’s the antidepressants. Either way.

Blessings, y’all! (:
