Day 137: Time to Grow Up (just a little bit)


It takes a lot of energy, wouldn’t you agree, fellow writers?

I should know, I’ve been moping ever since I got back into working the long, tiring, brain-numbing retail day job.

Well, after a good long while of this excruciatingly exhausting sulking regime, it seems like…. I’m done.

As we put it in French: fiou!

How did that sudden change happen?

Well, it certainly is not because I’m over the backwards policies and polluting-for-a-dime philosophy of the store chain I work for.

Rather, I decided to stop stressing about it. Just… stop.

And with a good old classic shrug too!

Hey, I dream of earning a living writing novels, right?

I’ve nooo time at all to mop over the fact that circumtances forced me to drop all my projects and find in a blink-of-an-eye a mind numbing day job!

!!! NO TIME !!!

It’s time to write!

And time to go back to the basics, get enough sleep, spend quality time with family, get outside and, most of all, enjoy!

Enjoy the snow falling instead of grummeling about all the shoveling we’ll have to do – again.

Enjoy kiddo’s imaginative games instead of fulminate about the mess we just, just clean up.

Enjoy the drive to day job, enjoy meeting new people and learn more about the women I work with.


Dear fellow writers, I’m sending all the joy in the world and may the good words all flow your way.
