So I know I said I wasn’t going to have any of ‘those’ weeks this year. Well, apparently they found me some how. In the same way ants always manage to find that one stash (or two) of cookies you hide for when you really want a cookie. Thankfully I eat most things rather quickly and ants don’t have time to find them. But that’s not the point.
One of ‘those’ weeks found me.
Thankfully, I’m still in one piece. I’d like to stay in bed all day…so…in the way all bad weeks should finish but never normally can, I’m going to do just that.
It’s a long weekend! Yay! And I have nothing planned for the Friday, so Friday, I shall stay in bed…and probably go for a run because I’ll feel like a fatty after my third breakfast while still in my pjs. YOLO!
Anyway, to finish my bad week I’d thought I would blog. But everything I want to write seems to get depressing quick. Instead, I’m just going to post a whole heap of songs I like (ok…not that many) this week. And a few quotes to finish it all off.
Before I go, because I had a random thought and listened to a good song, here’s my bubble concept. I have a tendency to give too many cares (normally I would swear here but I decided I’m cutting down on that). So I have developed a bubble concept. Inside my bubble is me, and things like people dying…you know uncontrollable things, they’re allowed inside that bubble. I can care about those, because I have to. But what I can control, what doesn’t actually directly affect me, that’s on the outside of the bubble.
It doesn’t means I don’t care when friends are upset, when they are stressed. But it’s not my bubble. Because you can’t take on the world’s worries when the world needs someone to figure out how to over come them somehow.
My bubble concept is the start of me stepping back from life and focusing on exactly what I want from it and what it needs from me. Things are not nearly as big of a deal as they are made out to be.
I have a whole heap of cool stuff to tell you all, but not just yet. I promise it will be cool! (well, it is to me. Most of you will probably think I’m nuts. But what’s new?)
For now, I’m just going to love my own company in my misery and take ‘me’ day.
This song is from Nashville, if you’re not watching that TV series, you should be!
This song I just love. Love, love, love.
The lyrics in this are just…they’re perfect. Actually, this is just the best song ever. (find the original if you want a raw version :))
NOW FOR SOME COOL INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES I’D LOVE TO TAKE CREDIT FOR BUT CAN’T
