I am not going to lie! Since I have returned home this summer from traveling I feel a bit lost.
It is mind boggling coming home and trying to start life again.
What happens is your immediate desire and need to refocus and organize.
You start by determine how much you spent! Ouch!
Then you decide you need to get on a diet when you can’t fit into your close! Painful!
Next, you look at every closet and cupboard in your house and say “What happened?” Truthful
Finally, you glance and your yard and you think….”How did it get so bad in 8 weeks?” Depressing
Then you think…hmmmm I should have stayed in my hut with my limited clothes and zero stress except for combating crabs and creepy crawly things.
I like a schedule, I like things organized, I am a spreadsheet girl and have one for everything…some may call it type A but honestly I have a lot of fun in me too…., I can’t say I can get excited about any of this right now. I am finding it a tad bit boring getting back into the journey and trying to find joy as I proceed.
When you have gone from feeling like you were making an impact and a difference to making spreadsheets for a tailgate party for a sports team again it feels so anti climatical.
Not to mention the time wasted on the internet and social media. Not having a connection but for long periods of times everyday made me feel so much more aware of the things I was thinking and the things that I wanted to do.
It appears that everyone in the family has moved on with their life and I wake up everyday thinking I need to get going but can’t get out of the past!
Can’t we hold onto summer just a little bit longer?
