Whew! I haven’t posted in quite a while, have I?
Whew! 2017 is done and gone!
What a year that was? Huh?! Crazy, crazy. On all fronts. I, myself, have been on a sort of ‘hiatus’, during 2017, as far as social media is concerned. Mostly, during 2017, I’ve been running to meet a due date; some of that time, running to care give for the ‘hubby’ – not to worry, he’s doing fine and very well. I find, though, that running all the time, with a vague plan of action, isn’t working for me anymore. Though I’m trying to not sound anal; I plan to plan more. Control more of what and how I do things. Now, in life, “shit happens”. You can’t control that. What I can control is my reaction to it. You see, when you’ve had several years, like I have – flying by the seat of my pants – you find that you have to stop and repair those pants!
Running becomes too much of a way of life – I even (subconsciously) bought a pair of running shoes, instead of my usual all-purpose sneakers, last year. When it feels as though you almost can’t get to the light at the end of the tunnel – because too much is being asked or demanded of you along the way – in the long run, that ain’t good. Every year I vow to change my ways; and I have changed some of my opinions and attitude towards some events, people, and, shall we say, ‘requests’. I more freely say the word “No”; but I need to do more. For my own sanity, if nothing else. Besides, I don’t wear crazy well.
Now, I do want to say, that I have some wonderful friends, family members, even wonderful clients, who have gone above and beyond to help out in a tough or unexpected situation; or at the very least, cut me some slack. I thank them all.
Let’s see what happens during the rest of this year, 2018, shall we? Can we do less crazy?
