Elizabeth Taylor was once quoted as saying "You realize who your real friends are once you've been involved in a scandal." I haven't been a part of any scandal that I can think of, but I think I can twist this quote to fit what I have been going through lately to say the following:
"You know who really loves you once you're in the middle of a (nervous) breakdown."
I'm not licking wallpaper or anything, but the past few weeks have been tough. I have been enlightened of a lot of things pertaining to my personal journey (an hell- just myself!) that are getting the much-needed attention it has previously been deprived of.
I also, just as importantly, want to take a minute to say "Thank You" to everyone who has chimed in, checked in, offered support, advice and wisdom. Thank you sincerely. It has been a great deal of help, more so than I was prepared for. I am humbled and appreciative.
Y'all, I'm going to be honest with you (as I'm wont to do ad nauseum). I've been having a hard time at the new job. I'm trying to stay positive, but it's been a challenging first two weeks. Deeply challenging. I'm not sure what's in the cards, if it's a match and suddenly will click into place (I've had it happen before), or if it's just a royally screwed lemon. Time will tell, but if you've been wondering where the heck I've been, I hope that helps explain it.
Not that all things are bad. Nay, good happens every day! What are my Top Three good things that happened and/or exist today? Funny you should ask, because!
#1. There is a chill in the air every morning that is the whisperiest whisper of FALL!!!!! It feels so amazing even though it's a blistering sauna by 5:30 every day. It's still coming!!!
#2. I have been able to laugh even though I've wanted to punch walls and/or cry every ten minutes. No seriously! I've had at least a dozen decent giggle fits today! Nothing like it. Best drug there is!
#3. I've had my sweet boys around me all night. Little, Big, and Papa. I sure do love those rascals. They make me feel loved even when I want to get all Incredible Hulk.
(The Hubs is gonna be so mad I posted this, but I love this picture of my guys giving me their "intense look").
That's it for me today. I am definitely trying to have more of a presence this week and I do so apologize for the sparseness lately.
X's & O's, y'all! I hope you have a truly wonderful day!
Ever want to disconnect? Do you have the vaguest concept of what that would look like or entail? Twenty years ago it was just normal. Now? Totally weird.
I dream about that. Of living a life of peace and simplicity. Sure I love Netflix, and I'm sure my passion for Supernatural and Gilmore Girls are two of the reasons I have never published any of my writings outside of a short story in college.
I oft wonder what life would look like without it all. I remember it. I liked it. I crave that simplicity several times throughout the day.
Guess what I did? I went and got a job that is centered around technology and cell phones and tablets. Whuh? Why, Lulu, why?!
Sigh. More on that later. In the meantime, I read this article and it has my head swimming in the magical ether of possibility.
Tell me what you think after you read it. I'd love to know!
