This weekend went by with a whimper and a pthbthbthb. Oh and mrowling. There was much mrowling to be had by Lucy, but more on that another day. I think I’m starting to understand what she wants depending on the time of day and proximity to the last time she was fed or had a productive outing. I’ll leave it at that.
I have had a lot on my mind … as I look back I think I have almost always had a lot on my mind. Very rarely does it affect my sleep, but at least 5 or 6 nights out of the last two weeks have found me lying awake, staring at one wall or another, trying to make sense of what I’ve been feeling and going through. I try to keep my private life private so I don’t write about it much here … especially in specifics … but I’m finding that my priorities in life are very clear. Love being first and foremost, work being way down on the list.
For all the bullshit that goes on at work more often than not I’m able to come home and not think about it at all until I have to head back in the following morning. Sunday nights are the exception there, but all of this dreading work lead me to a realization earlier today. There needs to be a balance. I need to have at least as many things that I’m blissfully happy about, or looking forward to, as there are things that I dread. I wouldn’t mind if I had a few more wins in the Happy column, constantly tipping the scales in that direction. I can think of a thing or two that would help drastically, but we don’t always get what we want right?
Speaking of the Happy column, and Love, I have a request. This is a little unprecedented but I want to get some outside input for this Thursday’s #AskSisyphus. It’s going to be about what it takes to be in a relationship. So I want your opinions on what you think is involved in a successful relationship. You can post them as comments if you like but I’d prefer it if you’d email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve got my own thoughts on the matter, and sure I could go and troll Google for random strangers’ opinions, but I want to leverage the tightknit community we have here and build the post around everyone’s experiences and ideas. So I don’t care who you are or whether you’ve had successful relationships, fake relationships, imaginary relationships or purely sexual relationships with successful imaginary people. I want to hear your thoughts. And if the emails aren’t forthcoming, rest assured that I will be bothering you personally over the next couple days.
Your names will be left out of it, unless you feel strongly about having your name next to your ideas (which I’d understand) … so let me know. I hope this weekend proved to be a good one for all of you and if you need shits and giggles you know where to find me.
