Yep, it’s definitely one of “those” days alright. I hate “those” days. What does that even mean anyway? I guess to me it means, when your dog wakes you up at 2:30 a.m. whimpering and running back and forth on top of you. So, I let him out to pee all squint eyed and half asleep trying not to bump into any furniture on my way to the back door. Or maybe it means one of those mornings when your alarm clock doesn’t go off and you wake up at 7:20 for your 8:00 a.m. appointment with your J-O-B that has a 30 minute commute. Or maybe it’s when you get stuck behind an idiot or 12 on the road that don’t know how to drive in the rain, and turn that 30 minute commute into a 50 hour commute. Or maybe it means one of those days when you yawn 50 million times and your brain doesn’t seem to want to function. No motivation. Lifeless and wishing you were home crawled up in bed and tangled up in your sheets. Or maybe it means one minute you’re happy, and the next you are grumpy and make that 180 degree flip for no apparent reason? Or maybe it’s when you’re starving and nothing seems to fill you up so you just keep eating, and eating, and eating. Or maybe it’s when the phone at your J-O-B keeps ringing and it’s the same people that call about 10 times a day with the exact same questions as the day before. Or maybe it’s when you have a headache, sometimes migraine from your toothache that has been going on for quite sometime, but you don’t have the money to go and fix it. Or maybe it’s when you just don’t feel good and you have 0-zip-0 energy and would much rather lick the floor than be “anywhere but here.” Or maybe it’s when you miraculously and finally grow out your nails and then 8 out of the 10 break within 2 hours of each other. Or maybe it’s when just everything seems to get on your last nerve, the clock won't budge, you can barely keep your eyes open... and then you realize, it could be much, much worse.
Why do these small things I encountered today make me feel so, Blah? I feel so selfish for even for even complaining about these things. They are so silly. People are overseas right now fighting for our country, people are battling cancer and diseases right now, people are starving in third world countries and battling aids, people are being abandoned and beaten, people are homeless, people are without love in their lives, and so on and so on. I’m so lucky to have been given my crazy beautiful life. I haven’t had the best of luck, I will say, but I am SO thankful for the things that have and haven’t happened in my life. Things can always be so much worse. I guess what I’m trying to say is be thankful for each day…even if it’s, you know…one of “those” days. Some times these days can be blessings in disguise.
