That's where I'm at lately. I feel like my outlook on everything is "Debbie Downer". I actually find myself thinking through, "What was I thinking about the other day that had me bothered, oh yeah, let's dwell on that again....."
So, there aren't a lot of new inspired blog posts - sorry about that.
I'm ready for spring break. I'm ready for a change. I'm ready to see Michele and the kids again - it's been way too long.
I think that's a part of it. She's been feeling the same way - and there is a certain little empathy that happens between us. We need to snap out of it because there's way too many great things that God is up to to be "glass half empty" these days.
I would also like the headaches to leave me alone, the scales to reflect the effort I've made lately in the gym (vs. the indulgences I've made lately in the kitchen), and the kids to act as though they really do love each other vs. the excessive arguing that's been in the air (I think we've all been in the same mood). Nothing like a laundry list of excuses to blame for my attitude.
What I am thankful for is the people surrounding me that fill me with hope, give me "things other than myself" to dwell on - and remind me that the world does not revolve around Stephanie. Hopefully, soon, I'll be in that place to be that person to the friends of mine that might need a little brightness in their lives from me.
