Reasons why I'm down in the frumpy dum dums this week.
I (for unknown reasons) started searching in the Etsy wedding categories and found a bunch more people who are blatantly copying off me! I mean, OK, I'm probably not the first one to make a vine crown with flowers and buttons and smaller accent vines......but seriously......can't you find your own "thing"?
I am having stomach problems (as per usual) that seem to flare up with stress. And these problems give me MORE stress ... leading to a vicious cycle.
I am really starting to not like going to work. I used to at least think it was semi-exciting most of the time working on a newspaper. You know, breaking news and all that. I even put up with people I didn't like that much. But now, my patience appears to have worn a bit thin in that regard.
I realize that I my life is never go to be exactly as perfect as I want it to be. Why not? you may ask? Probably because of my negative perception of it all. You know, there are so SO many people in the world ( most of them) who are in a worse life situation than I am. I think of all the babies dying of malaria, or homeless and starving ones....their mothers unable to care for them....Or people without a job at all or without anyone who loves them....
But then I look back at this post and count how many times I wrote " I " or "I'm" or "me" or "my" ---it's like 17 or something--- I guess I am just selfish.
But maybe we all need to be selfish sometimes, and concentrate as hard as we can on making ourselves and our lives happy.
