Why can’t my own stupid self doubt just go away? I mean, seriously?! You rear your stupid ugly head when I least expect it.. when it’s the last thing on the planet I want.
I’m always so worried about what other people want, what will make them happy or content. But so often, I find myself wondering if that’s just dumb? If something is wrong, or if someone is upset about something, perhaps what I really need to do is wait and trust that when they’re ready – they’ll come talk to me. Rather than bugging them to tell me. Perhaps the right path is really to just continue to enjoy the blissful happiness that my home life has become. And truly, it really has become just that. Perhaps the reason I don’t do that, or at least haven’t been able to is because somewhere in my twisted brain, I think that if I allow myself to just embrace my own happiness, that I’ll be blind sided and not see something horrible if/when it comes along. But living in doubt, or fear of a “what if” is just plain silly. Not to mention, living in that fear and doubt prevents me from truly experiencing that over the top happiness that I so desperately seek.
My family got a dog today. He’s so cute. He’s an older dog. We adopted him from a local shelter. I think he’s going to make an excellent member of the family. And that has me so overjoyed.
The house is coming together beautifully. I put up some pictures today that really made me smile. I have so much planned out for the next few weeks that I’m off. More art going on the walls, going to tackle a bunch of gardening, even attempt to refinish some furniture. It’s going to be epic! 🙂 And it’s so nice to have a break from work. To not have to do anything for the job that I don’t want to do.
Tomorrow, I’ve got a few fairly major things to take care of. One in particular, I’m pretty dang nervous about. My only hope is that it turns out the way I need it to. That’s just how it has to be.
Goodnight Neverland. Talk soon.
