I had several blog post ideas this week but after I realized that none of them were positive or uplifting I ended up not writing anything. Some of the ideas included but were not limited to:
- Writing about confidence and lack of it (me in the main role as the one lacking it)
- Writing about toxic friendships and how one shall avoid them
- Another post on frugality and general wastefulness
- As well as delayed report on how I did on my New Year resolutions in March. As far as this one goes, I realized that I definitely spent more than double as far as my personal expenses, did not read a single book (working 11 hour days if I shall provide an excuse) and I still have not gotten to any sort of menu planning. The only thing I succeeded in was making sure my dad gets some well deserved TLC. I sent him a couple of cards and a letter where I tucked in $40. I also call him more than usual this week which both of us are enjoying. Otherwise nada, nothing happened.
Are you yawning yet? Well, I am.
I am feeling blue these past few days, I am still slightly disappointed after the aftermath of the Easter weekend, I am super busy at work and stressed out as I am looking for a new job. I am exhausted this week. Every day after 10-11 hours at work I run home to cook dinner, do dishes, prep lunches and do it all over the next day. And to make it worse, it got cold here again. Ugh. I just feel a bit sorry for myself this week 🙁
That’s when I get silent.
Because I want to be writing about positive, happy and uplifting things. I want to be inspiring, encouraging and funny.
So why I am even writing about this now, one may ask? Well, I just read Kara’s latest post and seems like it is not just me who is having this kind of a week.
And it’s ok.
I think I am too hard on myself. If I wrote only about positive things it would not reflect the real person that I am. I am happy most of the time but I also feel down sometimes too, sad, upset, angry. That’s what makes us all real, right?
