I’ve dropped the ball on keeping up with my weekly themes, currently a couple of weeks behind. I’ve been uninspired, distracted, stressed, and avoiding all things ‘life’. However, it has been beautiful weather here, so I’ve at least been escaping into the pool. Can’t complain too much about that.
When I get stressed, or feel like there is too much on my plate to deal with…. I mentally shut down, it’s my life defense mode. Not the best tactic because it really just puts everything on pause, but when I have hard time focusing on any one thing, I decide to ignore ALL things. It doesn’t always work, stepping away from everything and everyone is hard to do, trying to reset and get out of my own head is needed though. Soooo…. that’s what I’ve been up to. Having my own personal pity party, trying to reset!
The fact that I took this photo, uploaded it, and am writing this post…. tells me it’s working though. One thing at a time, right?
I’m not a fan of vague statuses, where people cry about all things wrong in their world without telling you what in the fuck is actually wrong. Those statuses really irk the hell out of me. That being said, I apologize for not sharing all the stressful details of my life right now. It’s okay, you can hate me for that. lol
It has been a rough week around here, sadly my father-in-law suffered a stroke last Friday and passed away a couple of days ago. He was a kind man and served his country well. Retired pilot, Lt Col for the US Air Force.
I’m just going to post a pretty image I took on Independence day and wish you all beautiful evening.
When I was looking around online for some ideas I found a few images that made me smile. The inspiration for my image comes from the caricatures created by ‘McLendon Photography‘. Check them out if you have a second, so well done and creative. Will put a smile on your face, even if you don’t feel like smiling. 🙂
And here’s a little song that seems like a good fit for the photo.
