It Shouldn't Be This Difficult

"It's a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key."
Winston Churchill
Life being what it is these days, entwined in everything computerized like a Gordian knot, one would think life would be easier and less complicated. But that’s not the case. If you have ever tried to follow up on any kind of error in prescriptions, monthly bills, medical insurance, and on and on, more often than not you will find an endless maze of people trying but failing to understand your dilemma. It’s time consuming, a pain to deal with, and it shouldn’t be this difficult.

Whether it's a glitch in the computerized world or the goings-on in my world, I do find that I may complicate the Gordian knots in my life by inserting my frame of mind, and of course feelings. Patience and taking a step back from whatever the frustration helps me determine if I’ve made this personal on any given issue. The key is to listen more to what I am thinking and what someone else is saying because this helps me with most riddles, mysteries, or enigmas - even the computerized nightmares. While life shouldn’t be this difficult, I’m learning to take care of business by finding the keys that will unlock the Gordian knots in my life.
