And not least, because my mood got me humming along to Wicked!
Which can never be considered a bad thing.
And so, to now, this evening, I am thinking of The Man.
And know, there's a way forward:
That's what all the people say
You're riding high in April, shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, back on top in June"
And yes, the timings are near enough spot on (give or take organisational delays).
And I have picked myself up.
Thanks to literally taking the day off.
Thanks to texts, and messages.
Thanks to taking the time.
Taking the time to work on my CV.
More importantly taking the time to work on my new project (sssssshhhhh..... a sneak preview).....
The knowledge that I'm eating the wrong things, to regret tomorrow, but needless to say, my streaming cold demanding bacon and eggs, haven't made me feel like a complete failure.
And so, tomorrow begins our life anew.
A sports day, a doctor's appointment (I know my life is going wrong when I start to get all my appointments wrong, and repeatedly turn up a day early), my first day back at work, and dreams of a shopping trip to create the desserts I have been creating in my head today.
Yes, life is better compartmentalised.
Yes, they all overlap.
But appreciating the good things.
Not letting them be infiltrated.
Is the best way we can be true to ourselves.
