As I woke up this morning, I stupidly decided to “peek” at my emails; instead of my usual roll out of bed, brush teeth, drink water and stumble out the front door to the parked vehicle which leads me to my morning bonding time with myself. Again, not a wise choice! Not to get into too many of the very boring details but I ended up replying to said emails and 5 hours later felt the steam coming out of my ears.
Every little thing began to irritate me. The moronic emails, the kids fighting, the kids laughing, the sweet neighbourhood kids, even the hot weather was bothering me. The hot weather NEVER bothers me. It was like I had this unforeseen chip on my shoulder and nothing could relieve it. Nothing! Except maybe a run but I couldn’t run anywhere unless I strapped my youngest to my back and dragged my kids out with me in this dangerously hot,
humid weather. They would melt quicker than Frosty in spring.
Instead, I waited for my better half to come home so I could take a quick power nap, regroup my thoughts, have dinner and go for a quiet walk since mental strength is what I need today. Tomorrow the day starts anew and I will start it the way God has intended for me to start my day, in the GYM throwing around some iron and running some stairs.
I promise, tomorrow will be a better day and a better blog.
Getting some strength from within with my eyes half closed,
Until Next Time
