Poverty Week [Food Diary Mar 5]

Samosas & Sauce

Kinda lacking in money this week, due to only getting 7 hours of work last week, and having my car registration come in, as well as my hosting, domain names, etc. Arrgh. So have to look after the budget this week, which didn’t help that the first place I went to was “Coles” instead of my normal Fruit & Veg grocer so 13 items cost me almost $50.. normally I can get quadruple the amount of food for less than that at the grocer.. so it’s insane (considering they all probably have the same ‘source’ for food.. I don’t understand why Coles is more than double for some items than the grocer) … you live and learn :)

Lessons for today?

Found myself surrounded by arrogant, non-compassionate, agro people today. For a few hours, I was “them”, the people I definitely do not want to be like. I can normally ‘locate the funny side within myself and just internally ‘giggle’ off the negativity, nasty essences, and overly dramatic outbursts of anger where they have no regard for how to conduct themselves in a pleasant, kind way towards others. Sometimes, if I can’t just ‘smile it away’, I turn my heart towards their health – I think they possibly have liver or kidney damage and that’s why they are behaving like terrible human beings, so I try and find empathy for the meanest ones and try and ‘give them a break’. But today.. I let them all “get to me” somehow.. I have no idea how they did it because I’ve been shielded by the ‘b.s.’ for a while now, maybe because it was the cumulative effect of so many of them being aggressive at the same time, but yeah, they got in there somehow.

From my end, maybe from the lack of proper sleep last night, no proper breakfast today (just coffee and rush-out-the-door, (so maybe the lack of nutrition), could’ve been stress brought on by driving with barely any petrol in peak-hour traffic.. I really hope that it was just something ‘off’ inside me that is ‘gone’ now, but gosh – today was a real test, that I could find no lesson about.. it was just off.. and I kept on questioning.. what is the lesson here, what am I supposed to learn from this? I was feeling the negative energy from everyone today, I even managed to have a bit of a cry out of frustration in my break.. which actually helped a bit to be honest, so maybe that’s also what I needed. I’m hoping it’s the obvious lessons – ensuring I have enough money for petrol so that I’m not running on fumes in peak-hour traffic, leaving earlier, not drinking coffee too late so that I could get a better sleep, eating something nutritious for breakfast, etc. Even the juice place that I go to.. their juicer “broke” just as I arrived at the counter, so I had to buy a coffee instead of a juice lol, what am I supposed to learn from that? lol
