#SoCS All or Nothing

For Linda Hill’s SoCS promt of All or Nothing. Guess I’ll have to go with nothing. That is what I woke up feeling like today. So much apathy, insincerity, and downright meanness around me has left me feeling less than zero after such a gruelling work week. Promise I’ll be back later with ‘something’.  😞


Even at almost nothing she’s still beautiful, don’t you think?

  1. I hope this coming week is a better one. The people we deal with have a huge impact on our outlook. Maybe something nice will happen to put those folks in a better mood.


    1. Unfortunately it is a bit more intricate than just some irritable folks. I actually met some amazing people this week. Wish I could have gone off with them and had more conversation. Instead, I have to rush them through and on to the next in line. 😞 But you know me, I find great joy in those little things Life has to offer. I can see the truth in beauty, just sometimes my fingers get sore from tugging at those boot straps. Thanks!

    1. Thank you Jami. I always do. In fact, I rarely talk about these moments because they pass. Sometimes it just gets overwhelming and has to be expressed. I appreciate your kind words. 😊


    1. I’m so sorry to hear that. My last job required it every three months on a rotation. And we were supposed to rake care of shaving our hours elsewhere to make it not be overtime. 😒

      1. That is lame. I get that it’s a tough, competitive job market out there. And employers can threaten an employee with, ‘if you don’t do it, I’ll find someone that will’… These are the times I’m not against unions. But they still don’t guarantee employers won’t take advantage of employees.


      2. Money always rules and if anyone doesn’t understand that they are turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to it. Or they are very blessed in their jobs and I am happy for them.

  2. I wish I could remember the Latin translation of “Don’t let the bastards get you down.” It just sounds more elegant when said that way. What helped me thorough a particularly awful period was a gratitude practice. Morning, noon, night, giving thanks for the things I can give thanks for… I can always come up with husband and cats… If you have a daily calendar write them down… I promise you it will help. And meanwhile, from Frida Khalo (not my favorite painter but this is god): “I drank because I wanted to drown my sorrows, but now the damned things have learned to swim.” Huggs, we miss you!


    1. Thanks Kate. I have the same practices. I had a taste of freedom when we were in CR and it infected my soul. I’m reading The Artist’s Way and doing my morning pages. Those are great. Love you! 💕


  3. I feel the same way, Cheryl. Lately I struggle to express myself without the gall coming out. We are facing an election in August and I wish I could just leave this place. Even leave earth entirely.
