I’ve been absent lately because I’m finally creating the new blog that I’ve been thinking about for over a year now. It should be up and going in the next week or two. I’ve had a lot of good days lately, but I’m aggravated right now.
I’d rather focus my energy on the new blog and all of the reasons that I have to be thankful, but I’d like to get this off of my chest too.
I’d like to go home and curl up on the sofa with someone that I love. Doughnuts tend to be my fall back plan since there’s no ‘someone that I love” at home. I realize that Krispy Kreme isn’t going to bring me inner joy or peace, but it will satisfy my need for instant gratification. I want to cuddle!
It makes me feel weak and pathetic, and it’s happening at a time when everything else in my life is going incredibly well. These feelings are not going to define my mood all day, but I know how important it is to acknowledge them so I can move on from them.
Am I the only one whose natural instinct wants you to turn to food when you’re lacking affection?
UPDATE: I did not eat doughnuts. After posting this, I completely forgot about them, and I drove straight home. This is why blogging has been such a helpful tool for me. I felt the feelings, then I let them go.
