What happened to FUN FRIDAY?

Somewhere a long life's path I have lost my FUN Friday. The past few Fridays have been too serious, too dramatic, and I've been way too pissed off. So I am taking control of my Fridays again. I may even start taking Fridays off. That would be very cool.

I don't know, it just seems like lately I've noticed that there are some areas of my life that have somehow gotten too serious and taken up with other peoples drama. Believe me, I don't mind at all helping my friends and being there for them. Those times are precious, I'm talking about those times, when you are being dumped on, and there is nothing you can say that the person wants to hear or you try to say something helpful and they blast you, and they just want to take up more of your time and suck the life force out of you. Here we are looking at the left overs of Katrina and these people I'm dealing with aren't even grateful for what they have. How sad. Being a Libra I need my scales balances and they aren't right now. (besides listening to all this whining is taking up good knitting time :-) ) So it's time to take control, start tomorrow off different, be mindful of my time, my kids, my friends, my animals and myself. Life is too short to not be enjoying it, so I think everyone that reads this should take a little time and be good to yourself. Buy yourself something, have a piece of chocolate, do something to change your routine. The "have to's" will always be there and the people who drain you emotionally will always be around, you just have to take a moment to become aware of it, center yourself, take stock in the person you are and make a change. A friend of mine told me this one time and it's so true, "if you want the same results, continue to do the same thing. If you want something to change, then you have to decide to make a change."

Well I've ranted a little haven't I? Tomorrow I'll report in on how my changes went and have some knitting photos. (I started another multidirectional scarf on larger needles).

Isn't that the truth? I've been slowly reaching that same realization..
