In life, it seems like most problems can be solved by money. It's easy to think a job or unrequited feelings are the source of most problems. But little things have a way of sending ripples through your life as well. For instance, this week there has been a yellowish, crescent-shaped wedge splitting apart my family: My overgrown toenails.
I've just been busy. While I've managed to keep my teeth brushed and even my fingernails trimmed, my toenails have been neglected. This led to several unintentional clawings and all sorts feelings of discontent. Today I made fast work of clipping those dead cells and depositing them in the garbage can. A funk has immediately been lifted from my universe.
So if you are in a funk and can't figure out why, try clipping your nails. If you have nothing better to do you could brush your teeth again or, heaven forbid, floss. Just thought I'd spread some of the wisdom of my many philosophies on life.
