New day, old leaf!

 There are some struggles that I never seem to overcome. I fall into the trap of trying to puzzle out the reasoning for why someone acts a certain way even though I know 1) It's none of my business and 2) It's none of my business. I can only know my own motivations and never really know another's so too much energy directed to the why instead of dealing with the action that the why has created is a waste and often quite frustrating. I tire of the frustration and yet my analytical mind goes there.

It is not always a bad thing to think on "why", but getting stuck there is. I have been been getting stuck again. I saw a short sentence posted that I hope to perma-implant into my brain to stop myself from getting stuck. The sentence is: Trying to understand the behaviour of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.

Awe ca'mon. The color 9 smells like it's in between midnight blue and purple. This concept I understand. I see numbers in color (this thing about me, I'm sure you did not know). It is mildly annoying when I seem them printed in different colors...but it is always consistent. For example, when you say the word "2" to me or if I read it on a page...my brain sees a splash of yellow, and not the actual number.....or if it does see the number it is yellow and outlined in black.

2 is yellow
3 is blue
4 is orange
8 is green

The color 9 smells in between midnight blue and purple. Sort of like waxy crayons but add grapes and wet air to it. O_o

NNnooooo!!!!!!!!!!! Colors yes, but no smell of color 9! No. I do not now forever want to see the number 9 and smell Crayola. Damnit!

Still going to not get stuck trying to figure out people's motivations for behaviours even if 9 does have a whiff of wet air fruit crayon.

I often describe colours in terms of smells and tastes. Not so much numbers, tho ;)

Yes. Colors have tastes as proven by M&M's. ;-)

I associate smells with colors, too. But the triplicate of smell, colour, and number is what made the graphic I saw amusing.

um. yes. all of it. stop giving energy to things/people that have no logical explanation.
