Okay, I admit it, I’m lousy at waiting. Patience has never been a virtue of mine. I’m a ‘hurry up and get on with it’ type of girl. Particularly when the wait is for something that might not be good news.
This week, I have been forced to wait. And it’s a big, potentially life-altering kind of wait. The kind that makes it hard to sleep and hard to get up. The kind that makes your stomach jittery, even when you haven’t had too much coffee. The kind that makes you eat too much or too little (wishing the latter was how I respond to stress; sadly, I fall into the ‘eat more chocolate’ category). The kind that takes your brain in a direction you really don’t want to go.
If I see you at the gym, or the bank, or the park or the grocery store and I seem less than my usual sunny self, please don’t take it personally. It’s not you, it’s me (I have said those words in the past and not meant them 😉 , but this time, it’s for real!).
I need some distraction. Exercise and knitting help. Kind words from friends help. But what I really, really, really need is to hear some fantastic news.
Has something wonderful and uplifting happened to you or someone you know?
Have you seen something that has lifted your spirits? Please share!
