Have you ever felt invisible?
I have felt invisible and so have many others I have talked to. But you know what? I see you. You are not alone and you are not invisible. I see you everyday as I go about my life and I try to smile and give you encouragement.
I see the hard working mom going home to a dirty house because no one will help. I see the exhausted new mom with a baby on her hip trying to make dinner. I see the single mom trying to be both mother and father to her children. I see the housekeepers and waitresses cleaning up after people who have no idea what it is to do such thankless jobs. I see you the quiet introvert working away with no acknowledgment because you don’t cry out for attention. I see you the mother who has devoted all her time and attention to children who have gone off to do their own thing and never bother to call. I see you. I see all of you. I love you and I thank you for all that you do.
I had great plans for the Christmas Holidays. Four days off from work. I just knew I could get lots and lots of great things accomplished.
So did I get anything accomplished? NO.
I didn’t even manage to get my “must get done” stuff done.
Christmas Eve I woke up early to finish my present wrapping, living room cleaning and last minute cooking. We ate seafood bisque as a family for dinner on Christmas Eve. By the time I got home that night I was exhausted.
Then comes Christmas Day. Present opening, more cooking and more eating. I actually eat pretty healthy. We had roasted turkey, roasted carrots, parsnips and cauliflower, fordhook lima beans and gingerbread cake made with almond flour.
After all the visiting we went home about 3pm. Again I was exhausted.
Saturday was supposed to be my day to “get things done.” What did I get done? I read many books on Kindle Unlimited. And I was tired again.
Sunday I had chores to do since I hadn’t done anything the day before. We had a bad storm front heading our way so we went out and ran our errands and then I washed laundry and read some more. I did manage to post something for Monday but it wasn’t very inspired.
So here i am on Tuesday night. After a hard day at work I’m typing up my blog post for tomorrow.
We are heading into the New Year’s Weekend and I’m trying to figure out what I can do differently this time so I don’t fall behind and can possibly get some extra things done.
This is what I am thinking.
That’s all I can think of at the moment.
I can tell you I feel more energized just sitting here typing this up. Maybe I just needed to get up and DO something last weekend.
Thank you for reading me have therapy in print. I hope this helps you plan for your New Year’s Weekend.
I wish you the Happiest of New Years.
Thank you for reading!
Talk to you in 2016.
