Have you ever needed a break? And I don’t mean an hour…or even an afternoon. I mean a real break. Like a few days’ vacation from life. I think it’s entirely possible my “all in” attitude has caused a major disconnect with my positive outlook.
Then again, I might just be really tired. So tired, in fact, my judgment is skewed.
What do I mean, you ask?
Well, for one, I got into a debate with a group of fellow writers the other day. It was silly. I should have known better. It was one of those arguments akin to talking religion or politics—never a wise idea, especially when you’re the only one arguing your side.
But trust me…even when I’m not exhausted and out of sorts, I am likely to assert my convictions to an unwitting audience. Especially when I know I’m right.
So I laid out my point. Ran through the facts proving my position. And finally, gave up when no amount of compelling evidence would sway their views.
I don’t need anyone’s validation to prove I’m right. And frankly, I was just too tired to go on.
Then again…who knows…after a good night’s sleep I might be ready to jump back in with both feet and rally for a while longer.
My kids tell me I have a black belt in “beating a dead horse”. May as well put it to good use, right?
Until the next time…I’ll be taking a very long nap!
