What Are You Just Absolutely OVER?
A positive and inspiring post, I swear.
My little dewdrop, you are as gorgeous as the first light of morning glistening upon a drop of moisture atop a verdant bed of grass, just about to be nibbled by an adorable baby fawn who will never know the threat of a hunter named Chuck-Daniel or the front grill of a 2018 Nissan Altima. Why yes, I did have an iced americano. How the hell are you? This is a post-holiday check-in from yours truly, hoping that your own serotonin, dopamine, and other multisyllabic internal chemicals are doing what they’re supposed to do for you today.
Now let me settle into my deep discount (70% off!) factory outlet V-neck deep cranberry sweater that my Mom bought me as an early Christmas present (thank you Mom!) after a recent outdoor family funeral (it was very cold and very nice, honestly, and we went to the diner afterwards.) We’re going to talk about things we are over and done with, thank you very much.
This isn’t a post of resolutions or goals or anything like that, although those can be marvelously helpful. Maybe I’ll do one of those in future (would you like that? Do tell. Like this, it would be intended to spark your own creativity and responses.)
Rather, this is a place where you can simply state what you’re really over and done with, even if, as Miss Taylor Alison Swift once said, “I was there when you said ‘forever and always.’”
Sometimes, as with a recent hallucination where I thought it was more cost-effective to rent furniture (LOLOLOL what?) at first we say “Yes” and then later we say, “No.”
First, a little commercial break! Twice a month, paid subscribers get an exclusive bonus post from me to thee. This would be one of those. And today, we’re having a little declaration of independence moment - a NO THANK YOU party for the shit we’re done dealing with, whatever it may be.
Paid subscribers can always comment, so feel free to sound off on this Monday after what was, for some folks, an unbearably long weekend. (For others, it was far too short and everything is going great - you, too, are welcome here!)
I’ll start first, with a brief list of the stuff I am absolutely done with. Here we go…
