Sometimes we try really hard in life but just can’t seem to get one foot ahead of it all. It all being issues that relate to our careers, our hobbies, fitness, relationships…well, all things LIFE related. Right? I used to be a pretty go with the flow type of person, but I have noticed that the last couple of years I have so much LESS patience when it comes to all things fake/lying/negative/mis-treatment of me or my friends/family. What the heck am I talking about? Bear with me here…I’ve been up since 2 a.m. I will keep this sort of vague to protect feelings, but last night and today I found myself very HURT. It seems, that you are truly often damned if you do/damned if you don’t. Last night I ‘did’ and it slapped in the face like a hot dagger. And it made me very sad. So what did I do? I called my Mom…because although we only talk once every few weeks or so, talking to your Mom makes everything better, even at the age of 41.
Tonight after work, instead of going home and cooking a nice dinner I have to go to…THE DENTIST. I loath the dentist, in fact, believe I woke up at 2 a.m. due to anxiety of said appointment. My stomach hurts, I have a headache, and yeah…I get to have my teeth drilled on for almost 2 hours tonight. Looks like I will be missing my Thursday run, and having that extra glass of wine tonight. (We got back together, don’t judge-lol).
Despite my icky night and lack of sleep I still came to work with a smile. I work with a pretty crazy group, and they make smiling so much easier every day. We also ordered stuffed pretzles for lunch from a local place called “Gnarly Knots” along with soup and they were DELISH. I chose a plain salted pretzle with French onion soup. What’s not to smile about?
Do you ever feel like you’re hitting you head against the wall in regards to certain aspects of your life?
