It’s quite sad really. I named this month Sucktober. Was it all bad? No, not all bad. I did get to spend my tiny one’s birthday away and I really needed that. The sad thing is that I realized the school year is trying to beat me down and it just started. What to do? I have planned fun escapes for myself starting this weekend.
Some of you might be in the same boat I am in. Things do not seem to be going your way lately. Life has taken a turn you were not expecting. Do not let it beat you down. When you leave work, leave it there. It will be right where you left it when you get back. Finish the book you started reading this summer. The laundry can wait as well. Snuggle with your kids or pets. Take a walk. Plan to do something at the end of each day that is just for you. I am planning on getting my passport renewed. It is way past time.
I wish had more for you right now, but I think Theodore said it best:
“I learned there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead, others come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready, you see. Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me.”
P.S. Got an idea for a random topic? Get it in before next Tuesday or post it here.
