Are You There Guys? It’s Me, Frosty

The blinking cursor. It taunts me. How long will I stare it down? I have no idea what to type but I can’t stand staring at that awful, evil, nasty little blinking cursor and so I will just sit here and type and type and type and type. There are so many things going on and I feel like I can’t write about any of it, I’m keeping my life locked up in little metal boxes and the keys are broken off inside the locks so you can’t ever open them again, not ever again.

It’s horrible.

I used to love this. I would sit here, happily, for hours and hours and write all about my feelings, record all the little moments. Life was easier then. Or was it? Am I glorifying the past because it’s the past and all I can remember are the pretty pictures I posted here? I have no idea. It doesn’t even matter. I’m just so, so, so tired. I’m so tired of feeling like we’re fighting, constantly, just to keep our heads above water. And I know, I know that someone is reading this and they want to punch me in the face because whatever my stupid little suburban problems are, they are nothing, nothing at all. I know. I have so much to be grateful for. And most days I’m really good at remembering it. I don’t complain. I am grateful for the things that count. Most days. And then there are days like today when I sit on the balcony with the birds and I cry. And cry. And cry. I just wish things could be easier. I wish I didn’t worry so much. I wish I was more patient and more careful, more thoughtful. I wish I had more energy. I wish I’d made better choices when I was younger but I can’t think about that now or the mean little monster who lives behind my heart will thrash around and make me say awful things to myself.

I probably sound crazy. Maybe I am.

Things have not been going according to plan. Life has been life-y because, as they say, Humans Make Plans and God Laughs or whatever it is they say. BUT STILL. Anyway. Like I said. Most days are great. We’re fine. I’m fine. We work hard and we keep our heads above water and we’re okay. Today just hasn’t been one of those days.

  • I am here! Whenever you need me, dude. Love you so very much.

  • Oh hon, I hate those days. One thing at a time, one day at a time – that’s all you can take care of. Make small lists each day of things you want/need to accomplish that will make you feel better by the end of that very day. Downsize. Pay off debt. Prioritize what needs to be taken care of now to lead to less stress in your life asap. Write down one thing that made you happy or grateful each day. Hang in there. ((hugs))

  • You don’t sound crazy. You sound human.

    • Thank goodness. I always worry I’m losing my mind. But I think I worry too much.

    Writing only when you are happy can shut you down. Writing only when you are sad can put you in a funk. Writing about your small joys and sorrows can translate them into something digestible. I am a very hopeful and optimistic person so even a small essay about a sorrowful feeling gives me something to look fondly upon. I think you are a hopeful and optimistic person. Live well. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for these insightful, kind, encouraging words. You lifted my heart.
