Things to remember that are good right now:
- Our house is under contract.
- I’m going on vacation in a week and a half to someplace warm and sunny.
I mean, sure, I could start listing things like friends and family who are wonderful, and that John and I are in good health, and we have a roof over our heads and jobs we don’t hate, but that starts to sound treacly and some other word I can’t quite put my finger on. YES, there are plenty of things to be happy about or grateful for or whatever, but GAH! I feel stuck sometimes. Still in the house, still going to the office every day, still living the same life. Where are my changes?
[Pause for perspective]
That’s a little ridiculous (a lot ridiculous). I’ve been making changes all along. I’m exercising more, doing things I like with people I like. I make more time to read (on weekends, anyway). John and I have been enjoying more of the geeky things in life (all those games, some of the TV we watch). My time is more my own (our time is more our own), and I need every minute of it.
Maybe I’ll stop whining. For now. Just a little break.
