I have been reminded in the last week why I love writing so much. The actual act of making things up and putting them on a page. It’s because life is crazy and unpredictable and ugly and wonderful all at once. There are so many facets to a single person’s life that you could never know all of them, no matter what.
And having the ability to sit here at my laptop with a cup of coffee while I ponder the intricacies of relationships and reactions to even the most mundane events on paper puts life into perspective. It gives me a whole new way to look at those (real people!) who surround me. It makes me really consider their viewpoint on situations, and I truly believe it makes me be more empathetic toward them.
Unless they mess with Super Spawn, because then I kinda lose it.
But life is finally gaining a bit of sanity after everything that has been going on. We bought a new car (and LOVE it!) over the weekend, which is a huge, huge stress relief.
We also got to see our wonderful hair stylist (whom we adore) for hair cuts…
All in all, I’m feeling much more positive after a weekend of solving stressful situations. Yay! I also finished reading a FANTASTIC book, but I’ll tell you about that on Wednesday. Until then, I’ll be writing. Yep, I’m ready to dive back in. YAY!
What did you all get up to this weekend? Any adventures or insights? I’d love to hear about it!
