Writers Workshop-Finding Bliss

This week MamaKat has some great prompts to write about. I could have chose any of them but since I've been mentally exhausted lately I thought we should go with that theme.

My regular readers just clicked the little red X.

The Prompts:
4.) Have you found your bliss? What path did you take to get there? or are you still searching

I am still searching with the help of the greatest husband alive. God bless him and his patience!

I like to have hormonal pity parties and cry about how I don't have this or that. I like to rant and rave about the smallest things. Lately I have turned into a miserable monster.

In the past 3 months I have lost my job, lost a baby and lost my last grandparent. These things really do suck but there isn't anything I can do to bring any of this back. Nothing. If I could I definitely would but its just not possible.

I have to remember that some stuff is out of my control and that's hard for me.
I have to remember that everyone does not have to do things the way that I want them to do it.
I have to remember that everything doesnt have to be perfect.
I have to remember that life does not revolve around me.
I have to remember that I may have been spoiled as a child but real life isn't like that. People don't have to just do things......*I* have to work for it. Just as I work at being a great mom, I need to make that attempt at life.
I also have to remember to keep a positive attitude and squash the negative thoughts. This is such a battle sometimes and it is exhausting but its very important.

There are many things that I want to change about life right now and only I can do it. I like to preach to people that they are the author of their own book......noone else can write it for them. I should really practice what I preach.

Better days are waiting for me.

Those are some really stinky circumstances you have been through. I can understand why you would be exhausted! You are so right though...only we can choose where we go next, and it starts with the way we think.

Bless your heart! You have been through more than any person should have to go through and all in a month. **Hugs!**
You're right, better days ARE ahead of you :)

You have the right to be exhausted. I'm sure your mind has been working away the hours with thoughts of everything you've had to face lately. I hope you find your bliss...I'm still working on mine too but I've found a happy medium for now. I hope you find one too.

I think all that stress would make a monster of anyone. But go you for trying to turn it around...

I hope better days are headed your way.

Wow, you were right. It does seem like we are in similar places. I know people say when you're down the only place to go is up but I feel like someone stole my ladder. :-)

Better days are waiting for you. This isn't the top, its the bottom, and you can only go up. :)

Seems like you've had some real challenges lately. Real life has no 'money back guarantee' and sometimes it really sucks. But, you get to choose how it goes at certain points too so that's a good thing. I'm sure things will greatly improve for you. :)

Hang in there and keep your chin up, you are right, better days are in sight! And until! It's the best therapy!! =)

You've gone through alot in a short time and it will take some time to process and digest it all. But I can tell you're coming around ;)
