I’ve been in
a bit of a funk.
Because of this the majority of my past posts have been heavy on the “woe is me” and “whine/bitch/whine” themes. Sorry about that.
I’m not sure if this is because I’ve over committed my life and I feel poorly over my lack of success at completing everything on my plate or if I’m just in a low spot. (Or perhaps it’s hormonal – that’s always an option.)
Anyway – I’m sorry. That’s all.
I’d like to re-turn over the leaf I flipped back in February 2011. (Does that sentence even make sense?)
I want to go back to the excited, positive-thinking, “Just Say NO to Negativity!” lady I was then.
I apparently need to “effort” that.
Summer days are here – and they are fleeting. I’m not going to spend a glorious summer with a dark-as-night mood. Summers are for fun! Summers are for relaxation! Summers are for trying something new and re-inventing yourself!
(Can you tell what I did each and every summer from kindergarden up until I was tossed out of college for being crazy?)
So – starting RIGHT NOW I’m going to start looking for joy in my surroundings.
I need a pretty/inspiring/motivating picture-ish item for my desk. I need to take a walk in the sunshine. I need to actually TAKE the breaks I’m provided by our government when at work, and use that time to appreciate the beauty and humor around me.
I need to bring my phone/camara with me to record items RIGHT THEN so I don’t get sucked back into the negative vortex of procrastination. (Example: I need to take another walk and get a pic of that random-ness later so I can blog/chat about it – which then doesn’t happen. And, the spiral begins anew.)
I’ve said it before – and I’m sure I’ll say it again – but I have to start (insert title/name of newest grand scheme here), and it may as well be now.
Today the Grand Scheme is Be Positive.
Let’s go. 🙂
