If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll notice that I like keeping things fluffy, funny and light. Sometimes it is harder than others to stay an online ray of sunshine for those who stumble across my page. I generally don’t like posting too much about what I call the “not for Facebook” personal, but writing helps me cope, so I am writing this.
Thinking about what this year has given to me brings a lump to my throat. It’s been a tough one to say the least. If you had asked me a year ago where my life would be right now, it would most definitely not be where it is now. To say that it has been challenging is the understatement of my life, and I swear that if it wasn’t for my son, my fiance and fitness, I don’t know where I would be right now. Yes, I did just go that sombre.
See, I had just about everything that a girl could possibly hope for, sure things were tight, but on the right track. Then, without any warning, my world was thrust into an episode of a series about unsavoury (but attractive) outlaws – without the good looking cast. It was pure hell for an entire month while we waited to see what fate had instore for us. Fast forward to today, we had to start from scratch. We literally had to start all over again, like we had just left home for the first time, but without a kist full of brand new trinkets for your home.
We had to move from our gorgeous, little coastal village to try start over in the city. My son had to start at a new school and I had to find a new job. The Beatles said, All you need is love, but they said that while living off of the royalties that Beatlemania brought. So, while I have love in abundance, I am on the hunt for a new job (don’t worry, my current employer knows and understands this entirely). I absolutely love working where I do at the moment, so I am a bit bleak that I have to seek alternative employment.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want your sympathy. I don’t want anything but for you to realize that whatever you are going through in life, someone else is going through something too. You are not alone. There are so many people walking around on this beautiful planet of ours, who are all dealing with something dreadful of their own. We are all just trying to survive our own set of hurdles that life puts in our way. So, the moral of this post is simple, don’t be a dick. Don’t be bitchy or nasty to others just because you don’t know how to deal with your own stresses. Chances are, they’re just trying to overcome theirs the best way they know how… one day at a time.
You’re welcome to comment as always, but if you’re going to be nasty about it, I’m going to ignore you.
