May has been a tough month. I haven’t had a month this tough in years. I haven’t been stressed like this since I left my old career behind two years ago. All month I have been taking it in my stride and just getting on with it – as you do.
But not today.
Today I snapped…and cried. A LOT.
The hits have just kept coming this month. But each and every time, I have twisted it to find the silver lining. Isn’t that what we’re meant to do? I think I do it because I recognise there are countless people out there dealing with much more than me.
Today I just couldn’t put a positive spin on it any more. Today was the day I finally had a gutful of May 2014.
The funny thing is, even now as I write this, I am finding parts of today that I really am grateful for.
Happy Birthday sung by my niece and nephew, birthday wishes from family and friends, and an ever-supportive husband who picks up the slack when I (finally) tell the universe to get stuffed.
I wonder if it’s wrong to get pissed off at the universe or should I feel grateful that I was only given what I could handle? Is it really possible to stay positive 100% of the time?
