Today is one of those days where everything feels heavy. Everything feels like a dream or like I am on one of those rides that takes you through the scenes (like “It’s a Small World”), and all I have to do is sit here and look at the world passing by. I just want to sit and look, but others need me to do things, so I can’t just sit here. I’m responsible.
I’ve slept plenty but I haven’t exercised enough.
Bad headache from yesterday has gone but I’m still reeling from it.
And I am still getting through the stuff I didn’t get done when I was sick a few weeks back.
What an exciting blog post, Susan! Please complain some more to me!
You’re right. I shouldn’t complain. I know I can get myself out of this the same way I always do, by working toward all my to-do items that have stacked up a mile high.
Oh, lord, that to-d0 list: Deadline early next week. Other pressing matters I haven’t addressed that are due. Things I’m pretending that don’t bug me, but do. Things I should have acted on already but only I know about my own internal deadlines on those things. Ongoing: Maintain normalcy on all fronts. Learn how to ask for help.
The days are getting shorter and my patience level is dwindling with the daylight. I’m irritated with myself.
Again: super engaging writing, Susan! Thanks for being so specific!
Okay, I am going to stop with the negative self-talk. I’m going to get over this funk.
I pray for patience, energy, gratitude, creativity. I pray that I can generate enthusiasm from these sources.
Thanks for reading.
