Third-of-Life Crisis, Perhaps?

I'm writing this post without any regard for the few people who may end up reading it. It is likely that tomorrow morning I will wake up with and be gripped with writer's remorse. Of course, by then it will be too late. This will be out there and someone may have already read it. And judged me. Ay-yi-yi.

Today I hit a wall. I finally managed to make myself finish some things I really needed to do at work. I accomplished something and felt pretty good about it for about twenty minutes. Then as I was driving home all these things just started stacking up in my mind until they became too precarious and toppled over.

I just sat there, examining all the pieces and didn't even know what to do with them. No, my life is not in shambles. I'm just having a serious self-esteem crisis. There is absolutely no good reason for this. Maybe it is just one of those things that keeps my vanity in check. Maybe it a third-of-life crisis. I really don't know. All I know is that I just wanted to break down and cry.

In attempt to salvage what is left of my pride, I won't go into all the details. Let's just say that all the contributing factors taken individually would not have caused this episode. I usually don't care if people just stop talking to me for no reason or do things (probably completely on accident) that make it seem like they don't care at all about something that means a lot to me. Clearly though, all of these things stacking one on top of the other, put a big chink in my armor. That is unpleasant.

I'm really not sure what there is to do about any of this. I'll be fine after a while. Eventually some of these things will fade away and be replaced in my head with other things that don't make me feel like I can't make anything turn out right. I think now would be a good time for me to go to bed and dream that will happen soon.


  1. We should talk about this tomorrow.

    I'm sorry I dropped off today in the middle of our conversation. The big-wigs are in and I didn't want to be the next head on the chopping block. I probably will be anyway, but I need them to wait until after my trip.

    I think we're both having a third-of-life crisis. Well, for me it's a mid-life crisis; I smoke, remember?

  2. girl! I totally relate. I have moments like that. All the little things (and big things too) come invading your mind at the same time. You are an awesome woman, mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, co-worker.....don't forget it!

    I have been away from blogging for quite awhile and I need to get back to it. I so enjoy it.

    I hope tomorrow is much better. It will be sunny, warm, and I hope that you are reminded all day how amazing you are!
