trying to cheer up

I've not been having a very good 24 hours. Long, frustrating stories. That's why I haven't written in a few days. I had breakfeast with a friend yesterday and that helped so much. I don't usually reach out to my friends. I always feel like I'm complaining etc. But it helped. Basically, I've been feeling like I'm under so much pressure from so many directions and am ready to explode. Too many things to try and explain and it would bore everyone reading. So I'll save you all! To make a long story short, we are looking for an apartment. Starting today. I am freaking out a little. Again hard to explain why. Things are so expensive here and I haven't done this apartment hunting thing for years. I am making some of the first calls later today and we'll see what happens. I'm feeling all kinds of feelings about this and just want to feel less worried, anxious and sad. It is supposed to be exciting! Anyhow...wish me luck! Hopefully I'll be able to write a more upbeat, more positive post later today...I need to do some scrapping or cardmaking today. After all the regular chores....
To Do:
  • Grocery shopping. Just a few things.
  • Make some potato salad for supper.
  • Sweep the floors and straighten up a little.
  • Take a walk.
  • Scrap at least one page.
  • Start looking at which photos to develop for June.
  • Buy printer ink.
  • Print out my fall class roster and syllabus.
  • Read my book.

It's a long list. We'll see. I'm going to try to not stress if it doesn't all get done. It doesn't matter in the long run...

May the positive light fall upon you and guide you to think that your world is a place where all is possible and that things come to you easily and then your frustration will end. Your thoughts create your world. To change your world simply change your thoughts.

Have a wonderful day

Hugs to you. We are always here as a no judgemental ear and shoulder. Sometimes talking with someone out of the situation helps so much. I know your friend will understand and not judge you.

you can do this! You just need switch your perspective gears. Think of all the new possibilites a new place can bring. Maybe you'll find a place where you feel more creative or meet some wonderful neighbors. Look at it as an adventure not a burdon. =)

And girlfriend, your TO DO list is a pile on. =) *hugs* You are just piling on yourself. You don't "have" to do all that stuff. You're having a bad day, it's ok. Tomorrow will be better.

Thanks for the b-day wishes!

And your welcome. I have bad days where I make it worse for myself because I'm feeling sorry for myself. So I'll say, "I have XYandZ to do PLUS I need to lose weight, pay bills w/money I don't have, yardwork yet it's raining" and so on. When the last of my list is so ridiculous but it's my pitty party and I want hats & ballons. LOL
