Sometimes life takes us where we didn’t know we needed to go. Other times, we just sit on our asses and wait for life to find us. That’s what I’ve been doing for the past few months, eating bon bons and watching my ass get bigger and bigger.
I have tons of “reasons” for not blogging, not writing, not participating in my life. They are all just shit. I’m a lazy, unmotivated slug in the winter. I’m going to try to change that.
I started writing this blog because I was trying to figure out who I am now that I’m not who I thought I was, only problem is, I’ve been sitting and waiting for me to find me and make sense of it all. (Believe it or not, I had nothing to drink before writing the previous sentence.)
I found myself in that useless place, Dr. Seuss warned me about it but I wound up there anyway, the waiting place ...for people just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.-
Thank you Dr Seuss for describing my life so accurately.
Time to put a stop to that self pitying crap. I’m tired of waiting for my life to begin, it’s time to start enjoying my life.
So consider yourself warned, I’m back and my ADHD is in high gear. So many things to say, to do and to tell you about, and it’s all tumbling around in my head, just waiting.
In the words of Batty Kody- I’m back and I’m flapping free.
