I keep this posted in my office. A little reminder that I shouldn’t take my “writing” so seriously. So, tonight, I’m taking my own found advice and writing drunk…I’ll edit in the morning when I’m sober (if I remember that is).
It’s been a very trying week for me. And it’s not because of one specific thing, just a lot of tiny, little things that all seemed to gang up on me at once. It’s like death-by-a-thousand-cuts, only it’s not death since I’m obviously still here & able to write this rambling piece of slightly drunken dribble. *And, yes, I just made myself laugh with that last little comment.*
There are times, though they are thankfully few & far between, when I get very frustrated with life and the lack of a real clear path that I think I need to be on. When motivation and productivity come to a screeching halt & I’m left forcing myself to do the most basic of things like getting out of bed to take care of my children, husband, cats, household, etc., those are my really bad days. And, though they do happen, they happen only a few times a year and they are manageable. But, if I’m being honest, the fact that they happen at all, sometimes worries me. And, honestly, I don’t need anymore worry in my life. So, I force myself to just get through those days the best I can and for the most part I do make it “safely to the other side” so to speak.
I’ve yet to just flat out refuse to get out of bed or do the most basic of things like taking the kids to school, so I’m guessing that means that I am winning the battle with myself…and that’s worth something 😊.
*doesn’t take morning or soberness 😉 for me to re-think pushing the publish button* but, i am going to leave this out there for myself as a reminder that i should stay far away from any electronics that give me easy access to my blog or any other form of social media for that matter :).
