Not so good sorts

At the end of the Sunday news on (NZ) TV One, there's the little "Good Sorts" segment, a feel-good 5 minutes where they profile someone doing good things for others.

This is how we feel just after watching it
Do you think we are where we should be, doing what we should be doing?
Maybe our jobs are not fulfilling enough.
Should we be looking at being more generous of our time, serving others, etc etc
[Insert other deep and meaningful musings]

This is how we feel a few hours later ...
I have to stay up and finish that work deliverable that was due last week.
The kids are sick again. Bloody hell.
I can't believe it's Monday already?!
I don't want to go to work tomorrow.
[Insert plenty of moanings and groanings about our 99 first-world problems]

Sometimes the struggles in the mirror may appear realer than they are.
Sometimes they're da realest.
