In the end I started out on the kitchen cleaning and buried myself deeply in the task. I ended up spending the best of the morning on it.
"Still 'round the corner there may wait, a new road or secret gate."
This comes from a poem by Tolkien, I've now found the whole thing here. At last, something a bit more inspirational!
Finally, I found myself going back to dwell on the Serenity Prayer, written by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971):
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
I'm still seeking. There's a whole bunch of things I need to change, it's just that some things seem impossible to change, no matter how I try. But perhaps I haven't found the 'secret gate' yet...
The good stuff - it is still out there, however somethimes it takes quite a while to find it. I'll keep searching. :)
