My Christmas Hangover
I'm not sure why this year is so much worse than recent years, but I just can't shake this feeling of sadness. I wrote an entire blog post yesterday about what I was feeling, and then I left it as a draft. It was good to get it out, but I don't need to whine where the whole world can read it! I don't really have anything to whine about, really, other than missing my family and feeling a little lost in my career (or lack thereof).
So today I made the decision to pull myself up by my bootstraps (who came up with that saying anyway?) and shake the doom and gloom cloud that I've been under. I need to get my house in order, spend some quality time with my kids, and start to figure out what I really want to be when I grow up! No one is going to do any of those things for me, so I better just jump in with both feet and get started.
So far, my plan is working. I've done 2 loads of laundry, washed the windows in my dining room, and took down the outside Christmas lights and decorations. The kids are playing nicely together (shockingly!) and I feel a little bit better about the New Year! I know there are a lot of good thing in store for me this year. Now I have to go out and find them! I really believe that our destinies are up to each of us, and I'm not letting mine pass me by!
