It's not uncommon for my list of posts to be tagged with the word "draft". I get started on writing about something that I am going through or something I think is worthy of a blog post and then I get side tracked and forget what I was writing about... Other times, the voices in my head tell me they aren't worthy of posting....
Today I was going through some of them and I thought "hey I could plunk them all together and make a post on it's own". So that is what this is. It's a Mosh Pit of Posts from my heart to yours :)
On turning 40: The person I am growing into is a close replica of my dreams, I still have so far to go.
On getting the mother in law moved in: Personally, I feel like a failure.
On…feeling stuck: I feel like I am walking through quicksand and if I stop briefly it will swallow me up.
On teenagers waking you up asking for money: This morning is one of those 'throw up in your mouth' kind of mornings.
On making the drive from Texas on my own: A testament to the strength that lies in one teeny tiny individual Soul when you put your mind and heart to something and take action.
On settling in with a someone new living in the house: "How am I going to make all of this work?" Ahhh, that sentence just slowed me down. So many times it is me TRYING so hard to make something work that trips me up.
On the possibility of hockey being cancelled due to lack of volunteers: Does it bother me that parents aren't stepping up to take part? Yes. Do I blame them? No. Who wants to volunteer all kinds of time with other people's kids just to be criticized and yelled at when things don't go their way.
On the weeks following my trip from Texas: For two weeks I have been less than comfortable in my own skin (this is code for I have been a bitch).
On confrontation: I have this nagging feeling that by walking away I am being a coward.
On being alone on a beach during 24 hours of silence: At one point ten turkey vultures started to circle above me. I felt a little nervous until I remembered they liked their meals already dead. For now I was safe.
On taking responsibility (this is all I had written): "Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility." -- Sigmund Freud
Well, I hope you enjoyed that super short trip down 'draft' post lane :) This is proof that just because you're a draft post doesn't mean you are a failure... Sometimes draft posts get screen time too :)
