Caught Off Guard

Why does life hit you with a slap? Why do things hurt even after years? Is it just our brains playing tricks on us? If so, why? What is the point of reminding us of what hurt but all the good prior to that? As ridiculous this question probably is, am I the only one who gets hit so hard they are left winded? I’m sure others have felt this but I have yet to meet them.
I suppose the question is what caused this? Just a small action of listening to songs. Songs I enjoyed at a time that was not the best for me. Even after years I am still hit with those raw emotions, less intense, but present nonetheless.
These were beautiful songs that got to my core and what, even after years I can’t enjoy them? Will I ever be able to? Why should I allow the pain to dictate what I can appreciate musically? Why should I let it win? No! Fuck that! These songs are mine and I’m taking them back! I am reclaiming them as my own, as my enjoyment, as my happiness inducing melodies!!!

Life at Full Speed

Well, when things finally seemed slow and steady of course curve balls are sent my way. First, I get a text from the “friend” that was not a friend and I need to friend breakup with. At this point I don’t know what to say. I have had a few different ideas of how I would word it but I can’t bring myself to actually write. Not that I want to delay the inevitable it’s just that I’m so tired. Tired of a terrible friendship that is all take, take, take from her end. I’m not saying I don’t have this characteristic but I definitely don’t feel I have this flaw to this degree. All I can do is shake my head. I know I eventually need to tell her how I am feeling, I just don’t know when.
On top of that crap, of course I am having car troubles. I swear I’m cursed when it comes to automobiles. Everything one I get has some malfunction. On the bright side I have a rental but it’s still frustrating.
Either way, I know things could be worse but it still gets a person down.

Today

Despite the noise and chaos of two children, ages 4 & 7, today has been a nice day! I bought a bunch of stuff to do some crafts I found on Pinterest. Now if you know me, and I’m sure others, I spend way more time pinning than doing, unless it’s recipes. Anywho, I did some of the crafts I pinned and the feeling of completion and satisfaction is unbelievable. Also, if you know me, I am one to start projects and never finish them or put them off for so long and eventually finish them. Either way, I spent, essentially, my whole day creating these crafts and I’ve never felt so relaxed and in my zone of passion. Not only were they crafts but they were also gifts for others which makes me giddy. Yes, I am giddy to give. Especially if I bake! I love to share that with everyone. I’m actually surprised I haven’t started giving them to random strangers. Anywho, today has been the perfect day for me, fall air and crafts, all while taking care of my family. This happiness I feel is radiating! I’m sure all you who read this can feel it too!

Day full of crafts!
