Eyes on the Prize


I know I've been all doom and gloom lately but it has been unintentional. I let life get the better of me and drag me down. The Lover called me an Ostrich the other day and he's pretty correct in that statement. It seems when times get too much for me to handle I hide my head in the dirt, or comforter. Needless to say I've done a lot of sleeping lately.

I think I broke out of it though. Times are still rough, I have no idea how we are going to make a mortgage payment, or if we are going to move and if so where, but my shoulders are not as heavy as they were.

It was as simple as filling out the Interests part on my facebook profile that reminded me of all the things I do enjoy. All the happier times I know will happen again and when they do how tiny a blip this downtime will appear on the radar. I cannot freaking wait for that to happen but patience is a lesson I have to learn right now.

So, eyes on the prize. I'll keep looking forward at what I ultimately want to do where I ultimately want to be and it just so happens that The Lover wants to be there with me.

Hey, I just found your blog on 20SB and had to leave a comment. I am in a scarily similarly to you...recently unemployed as is my other half...we're in a place we have no ties to and are debating whether to up and leave. Keep your chin up, I don't know you but from your blog you sound like a fab person who has a lot going for them!
