I’m in a very strange place today. I don’t feel like I’ve had any energy for so long and I haven’t had enough time to recover this weekend. I really, really, really wish I could call off tomorrow, but we are just too busy at work.
This is the first summer I’ve worked full time in since my son was born 13 years ago. I know I should be grateful and count my blessings and all the rest of it, but to be honest? I don’t feel like I’m having a summer. I hate that. I wish I could go back to part time again. I really like my job, but I’m feeling fried all the time lately.
“If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.” — Emile Zola
I heard this quote today in a eulogy for a dear church friend who died way too young. She lived her life out loud.
It’s been a stressful week and I am just so ready for the weekend. Here’s one of my favorite 80s songs, guaranteed to perk you up.
