I’ve been in a bit of a dry spell for writing lately. It is not because I don’t have tons of stuff flying around in my head or because I’m not actually writing. It is just not stuff that I’ve felt is appropriate to share here – for various reasons.
I’ve told my kids tons of times that life is not fair – but gosh darn it – Life just plain ole SUCKS sometimes!
I’m struggling with something right now which I can’t share any details about. However, I can share how it has me feeling. I feel betrayed. Like I have given and given of myself and the other party has just crapped all over everything I’ve offered up. Now in this situation I actually do kind of understand where this other party is coming from and I get that this is not personal. But no matter how many times I tell myself that and no matter how much I understand that – it does not change how I feel. It feels personal to me and I’m having a hard time not taking it personal.
So if you don’t hear from me a lot right now don’t worry yourself too much. Come back now and then to check in and see if I am back.
I’ve decided I’m going to partially combat this entire situation by writing more. I’ve started reading On Writing: A Memoir on the Craft by Stephen King and it is inspiring me to really start pushing through all this crude and to not let it keep me from my passion. Instead I will turn this into fuel for my passion.
So while Life just totally SUCKS at times – I’m going to do my best to turn that into good things for me. I will stumble and wallow in my muck at times – but I’m determined to get through this. So please keep checking back and cheering me on. It is greatly appreciated.
Love to all of you who are rooting for me! You are my heroes!
