It’s been a long time since I’ve posted to my blog. I want to say that I’ve been too busy, that lots of other things took precedence, that I’ve had personal issues, health issues, relationship issues, etc. But the fact is that I allowed all of these things to excuse me from my commitment to keeping this blog. That’s the way it is for a lot of us. We make other choices to avoid doing what we’d rather be doing. Why?
When I stopped to think about it, I realized what a negative head space I’ve been in for months. I typically don’t allow life’s disappointments to get the better of me. I like to keep on top of them, address them individually so they don’t pile up, solve them like puzzles, transform them into harbingers of wisdom. But lately, I haven’t been vigilant enough, or maybe too many things happened too fast, or I’m getting slower, losing my endurance. Whatever it is, it’s pissing me off.
I need to let some positive stuff in. Helloooo all you good things waiting to happen! Here I am. Over here!
Denise, I have been harboring you (or maybe it’s more accurate to say thoughts of you) in my heart and consciousness for several days. So, if that’s something you might add to the pile of “good things,” here it is. We love you, Sweetie, and will help in any way you see fit…
I am glad to see you are back and sounding more upbeat!
Keep going, I’m riding the same sort of upswing and the momentum helps the work. I’m not back to the habit of daily writing yet, but I’m hoping we both get there very soon. Here’s to us and our keyboards.
Glad you’re feeling more optimistic.
Thanks Beth and Irene, for the support. I could sure use some right about now.
Awww, smooches to the Dottster.
Glad to hear you are ready to let the good things happen. Now they will
Thanks for keeping in touch Pam. Good to hear from you. If good things are ever going to happen, I definitely need them to happen NOW!
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Actually, as much as I hate to admit it, I have a small collection of t-shirts piling up in my wardrobe that say “Ooops! I did it again – I let life’s disappointments get the better of me.” But you know what? I’m pissed off with myself too. I’m done collecting those t-shirts!
I wish you good things, great things, just ahead, Denise 🙂
I never met you but have loved reading your stories and your book. You are a talented writer and I hope you can overcome any life events that come your way. Keep positive and do what you do best!
Thanks Fia. Here’s to using those Tees for dust rags!
Hi Wendy. Maybe we will meet someday. Gilbert is a little closer now that I’ve moved down to Baseline. So glad you enjoyed my book. Hold that thought about overcoming life’s events. Got a big one coming up.
