Random Ramblings – Living in Yellow

Properly, it’s been a couple of minutes of penning this weblog publish and inside these jiffy of typing,  I’ve gone from sharing how no person cares or thinks about you as a lot as you suppose they do, transitioned to how I’m not almost clever sufficient to take part in the entire espresso store conversations occurring round me, and segwayed right into a rant about the way it’s taking every thing inside me to not go subsequent door to get an enormous pretzel with cheese to course of by means of my newest remedy session. Evidently, focus isn’t flowing in the identical route at this time. What it is best to take from that is: I’m going subsequent door to get the pretzel and when you might imagine my first assertion about others not excited about you as a lot as you suppose they do is harsh, it’s true and it’s additionally very liberating when you faucet into it. 

Let’s not mistake my phrases as: no person loves you or cares about you. I’m 99.99% that isn’t true. BUT. Do take my phrases because the thought that you just’re placing into your day by day outfit, the choice you’re about to make about your job transfer, or if the pillows in your sofa ought to be inexperienced or blue, no person finds it as massive of a deal as you do. Do with that what you would like [go naked, take the job offer, and green, choose green], however possibly ask your self what you’d do otherwise proper now when you weren’t doing it for the sake of what you suppose others will suppose as a result of whereas they might give it some thought for roughly 2 seconds, it gained’t go a lot additional past that till they’re again to deciding what colours THEIR pillows ought to be. That was a number of utilizing the phrase “suppose”. Let’s transfer on.

Blame the espresso store atmosphere for the deepness. It’s a facet impact of others speaking about faith, tradition, parenting, job satisfaction, and different verbiage I don’t perceive. 

One other massive factor on my thoughts – kids. This comes in phases the place it’s extra on my thoughts than others, however one thing about turning 36 in a few months is bringing a newfound stress of time that up till this level, I actually didn’t really feel or take into consideration. For the previous 15 years of marriage, I’ve loved residing in the grey area – the area the place it felt like freedom existed to not really feel like I needed to lean a method or one other. However each month that creeps by, I’m beginning to really feel this query pop up in my head “at what level does the grey transfer to black and white – a sure or no, this fashion or that means?” kind of scenario. One thing is telling me that at a sure level, the choice can be made with out actively giving it a voice and naming the selection deliberately. That’s my worry associates, that point will maintain passing by and one morning I’ll get up and suppose “WHY DIDN’T I DO THIS?” which is a brand new kind of worry for me. After which on the opposite facet of that, the stream of fears [or maybe to more properly name it, the stream of freedoms I currently experience and feel in my life] that I simply can’t freaking determine if I need to change or not. Name me egocentric [it’s okay, I call myself this as well], however I actually like deciding at this time that I’m going out of city tomorrow for a live performance. I additionally actually like quiet and peace and sleep. Oh my gosh, I like sleep. And I’ve liked virtually 36 years of this and each month that creeps by I like these items extra. And now you perceive the predicament. Finally I do know I have to take this to the Lord, however I’m doing what I love to do with most issues and retaining them below “my management” as a result of that feels safer and a heck of much more difficult and messy which I should have a delicate spot for [insert the eye covered monkey emoji here]. 

Actually, someone studying this understands and will get precisely what I imply. I would like you in my life. I really feel like a assist group for “ladies who suppose they need kids but in addition aren’t satisfied they need kids and are approaching an age the place they’re getting extra drained and stiff once they sit for greater than 5 minutes but in addition might be actually enjoyable with younger people and makes an attempt to do splits to point out off their youthfulness however then regrets that call 2 minutes later” appears obligatory. I don’t suppose that’s an excessive amount of to ask. 


About that pretzel.
