Anyway. I’ve clearly been down in the dumps lately. “Ew” – it does totally suck, however a necessary, unavoidable part of life.
I’m definitely primarily an optimist – wait – there is a Buzzfeed Quiz for that and YOU MUST DO IT:
Quiz !!!! Do it!!!
However every now and again I am a bit of a Debbie downer:
OK – so we were in Vancouver last weekend (fave city) with some of my fave people, running the SeaWheeze (also a fave) race and staying in Kits (you guessed it, my fave Neighborhood in Van). Not depressed.
I stepped outside and drank a coffee and read a book one morning and I was like “GET THE FUCK OUT” when I realized this was 75% of my imagined “best day”.
I remembered I was on holidays. Moderate mood buster for about 5 mins. Then I thought – ok, fuck Mere, it’s time to make some changes. I did an inventory of “stay” and “go” in my mind. I won’t get into that right now. I know I’m like soooooo open – but for now, you must wait.
I was also inspired by a friend of a friend who said fuck it to her old life of drinking and Calgary and “ew” – she picked up and moved to Van and is in the process of re inventing her already awesome self.
This got me to pondering: As I am married to Calgary because I am married to my Oil and Gas Guy – how can I reinvent myself within my own city. What steps and chances can I take to get to this space of happy on the ready.
So – the idea of this blog post came about. I pitched it to my darling husband, the realist he is stated, obviously: “you will never always be happy”. We do call him Eeyore.
But he’s right. I’m known for making rash life decisions. So. I’ve got to try a few things and figure it out.
I really don’t want to be a super annoying quote of the day gal – because I’m already 3/4 of the way there and I’m getting on my own nerves.
I have a few ideas. I need to make a change and I can’t wait to tell you about it!
