Day 49 – In the middle of nowhere

without comments

It’s official – I’m having a mid-life crisis.



Overheard on Twitter:

“The most important questions are often the simplest questions which we overanalysed and made the most complicated.”

In my saner moments (like the present moment, when my mind is not clouded), it really does feel that way – that I’m ignoring the simple truth in favour of something so convoluted, I’ve ended up losing the script. I mean, seriously, who gets stressed out figuring bus routes and making simple telephone enquiries to flooring distributors??? TMD!!!

But I think also, that this has been especially hard because of who I am, what with my pessimism and paranoia and neuroses and all the most ridiculous what ifs that populate my mind 24/7 – even more so now of course. And it’s getting in my way.

All the more to do something about this instead of wallowing in misery.


Note to self:

I need to stop obsessing about the *perfect* way out of this. There is no right or wrong. But there is certainly *doing* something about this crap I’m in now instead of running around in circles. I’ll just have to make do and figure things out along the way.

And oh yeah, remind myself it’s not the end of the world.
