Tired


I'm not feeling very inspired, I'm sorry. 

It's cold. 

I'm tired.

I've been cooking and knitting and sewing, with not much to show for it.

I want to come to this space and write about it all, but I'm not sure how.

The job I've had for 10 years is changing before my eyes in the hands of a new manager. I'm trying to see it as the push I need to seek out other opportunities. But I've become so comfortable with this steady and stultifying mediocrity.

In so many ways, I'm like my almost-five-year-old, who has yet to learn that not everybody in the world has her best interests at heart. She and I, our first instinct is to assume the good.

What I need is an early night.

A sunny day.

A bracing walk.

  1. I'm fed up too. Grumblingly fed up. Grumble grumble grumble. Things can only get better though... right?

  2. Oh dear, it all sounds bleak. I hope things look up for you a bit. Maybe your changing job will lead to exciting new challenges, there or elsewhere? I think cold, dark, wintery days with small children are incredibly draining. I'm sure I always get more down or anxious during the winter months. Some sun is good for us! xx

  6. Oh dear - sorry to hear that but a good walk always helps me find balance and I get really good thinking done, too. Life is about change so be open to the signs.

  9. Wishing you an early night, a sunny day, a bracing walk, and maybe some good chocolate thrown in there? It's hard being in the doldrums, and I can relate to the management woes. Well, if it's any solace, you are an inspiration to me, even in your post about feeling uninspired (: The world needs more people who assume the good.

  11. So hard to see that others may not have your best intentions at heart. Safe can be so nice, so sometimes we need that push to move forward.
