And again! Thank you to all who follow and support me!!

No pity please, we all go here sometimes but I do need to vent.

Note to readers: Leave now, come back tomorrow I’ll be my usual optimistic self again.

There is no need to go through the nitty, details that piled up to the point I find myself here. How does one gets out of this emotional cesspool of self-pity fueling guilt, feeding a lack of creativity? The best move I could make is to realize that the sun will rise, the day will dawn with new possibilities and I will still be here. No amount of food, alcohol or other stimulants will change that. Pistachios be damned. I am calling this a day, doing the right thing and checking out.

My mind feels like fried green tomatoes.

    That is a good way for your mind to feel!! Fried green tomatoes are AWESOME!


  2. You are officially excused from school today. Go pat a dog, ride a horse, whatever it takes. Normal service will resume eventually…


    1. Permission is a powerful tool – Thank You!

    Yep go with it, glad I’m not the only moaning groaning grouch today, which isn’t any help to you as I’ve just called you a moaning groaning grouch! And I ate too much pizza…


    1. Moaning groaning grouch is perfect for me! Pizza and I don’t agree on much but every once in a while “he” is a cheap date…

    Martha — you are human.

    Thanks for sharing your angst with us. That’s what we are here for, in part anyway, to prop each other up, lend an ear, offering support and encouragement if and when we can.

    It’ll come. It’ll come…. 🙂


    1. Julie, I refuse to be human – I must be super human!!

  5. A walk in the woods does it for me.


    1. Your are right of course. It would do it for me too if I would just slow down and DO IT!

    We all have those days. I hope yours has passed now and you’re back to feeling happy 🙂


    1. Thanks Marie, it has passed as it always does. When I’m in the thick of it, I often can’t see how to get through even though I know in my heart I will. That’s why I go back to my journals.

  7. I came across this read at the right time!! This is exactly me today… ok, this week! Nothing a little sleep and a hug can’t fix, though! Keep smiling! 🙂


    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! You are right about the sleep and a hug, or a wet dog kiss!


Love to know what you are thinking! And thank you for commenting.
