I just found this post in my drafts folder. It has the tag “first trimester” and is dated October 7.
Maybe I didn’t publish it because it depressed me. Well, it may have depressed me then, but it makes me laugh now.
But, admittedly, I have enough spare energy now to laugh. Love the beginning of the third trimester.
Here is my Glance at the Past…
Helen Keller —
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
Can I just tell you how depressed that quote has made me? Obviously Helen Keller never experienced the End of First Trimester blues. No inspiration. No energy. No sense of purpose or focus…other than squeaking in a nap. Which isn’t very inspiring. Just necessary.
In my future life, as in my past, I’m sure that Helen’s Daring Adventure will be inspiring and uplifting and I will attempt to model my life after it. (After all, who wants to be involved in … NOTHING?)
But for now, I just truly wish I had taken my rather jellyfish-ish self off to bed without checking out just one more blog.
Someday my energy will return and I will re-enter the human race and continue to feed my misplaced sense of self-worth by accomplishing things that mean something. But for now, I leave you with a quote from one of my mom’s favorite songs, from the classic film Blazing Saddles, sung appropriately out of key with a terrible German accent….
“Ah’m so taaahred.”
