Sometimes I just need to chill.
I haven't quite learned how to let go of all the things that really and truly are out of my control.
But I am working on it,
I am a work in progress.
Yes, I have been a little overwhelmed lately.
Not sleeping well
being laid off
missing my friends & family
dark short days....
Can I control any of this? Not really.... Breathe in, Breath out....move on (Jimmy Buffett)
So, how am I dealing since I can't, scratch that WON'T hide under the covers with a bag of cheetos and a kit kat chaser?
I drag my ass out of bed
face the day
go through the motions
try to smile
blast some ani difranco (or any other angry chick music as my DH calls it)
I sure hope this funk passes soon because I can barely stand myself...lol
and I will leave you with this:
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
~ Dr. Seuss
