There comes a time in everyone’s life when they’ve just had enough.
I’ve come to this point many times in my life actually. What usually follows is some kind of drastic change or emotional outburst. I’m really too old for emotional outbursts. They never end well and I never feel better afterwards. I need a more effective way of handling stress.
I tend not to deal with things as they happen. I have a tendency to hold my tongue opting to deal with things at a later time. Unfortunately, “a later time” never materializes and the issue doesn’t go away, it just sits there – waiting to emerge in a negative way.
On a more positive note, I have a two vacations coming up! I’ll be traveling to Texas next month to be in my brother’s wedding.
I am so happy for him and my future sister-in-law. It does my heart good to see such a happy couple willing to commit to each other. Then in September I’m going to Hawaii, baby.
This is going to be the trip of a lifetime. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 50th year.
Fifty years! It seems like such a long time … until you’re actually there. In some ways, it feels like the blink of an eye but when I look back over all the experiences that I’ve had it feels like a lot longer. Thinking about it makes me kinda tired. I’ve packed quite a bit into the first 50 and I still have so much to do.
I get annoyed when I see the quotes announcing that “50 is the new …” Fifty is not the new anything. Fifty is 50. I have a hard time defining it because once upon a time I certainly looked at 50 as being old and incapable of doing much. I do more now than I ever did at 30, that’s for sure. I’m not 30 and I don’t want to be 30. Thirty sucked – at least for me it did. Forty was cool and I know that 50 is going to be spectacular.
Change can be difficult for people and I can’t say I’m exactly looking forward to all the changes that are about to take place but I’m open to them. They are necessary and are leading me to a happier state of mind. I am a creature of habit and I’m most comfortable when I have an established routine – but how boring is that? That’s why it takes me so long to get stuff – I didn’t get my first smartphone until 2010 – and that was a Blackberry (face palm). This weekend I’m getting my first tablet. I never hop on the trends because I “like the way things are”. But I think I miss out on quite a bit by not changing sooner. Does that make sense? Anyway, I’m rambling.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
