I don’t know if it’s because of the full moon and lunar eclipse this last week, or if there’s some kind of astrological “retrograde” happening, but this last week has been a rather odd one, it feels.
When I say that the week felt odd, it’s like we were in an episode of The Twilight Zone. To start with, I just realized I haven’t even opened my laptop in like a week and a half. I haven’t written a thing for either blog. Usually I’m writing something to post or at least a draft, but this week I did neither.
At work, some of the employees are usually arguing with each other or seemingly at each other’s throats. During this last week, however, people were actually getting along. It’s been a nice and welcomed change.
Around a week and a half ago, one of the folks I went to high school with stopped by work on her way through town. We talked for a bit, and they had to be on their way. It was nice to reminisce and see someone I haven’t seen in over 30 years.
Also, I’m not sure where this came from, but I’ve been experiencing a drastic change in myself. I’ve noticed I’m a lot more positive and calm. I’m actually feeling happy for once, and I don’t see myself as the humongous loser I once imagined. For the first time in many years, I don’t totally hate myself nor wish I’d never been born. It’s been a welcome change for me, and I hope it continues. I hope that the source of this happiness stays with me for a very long time. I don’t want to go back to the darkness that enveloped me.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and many are remembering the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this country. Graveyards will be decorated and people are traveling. It’s been estimated that millions of people will be on the roads this year, and gas prices are the highest they’ve been in probably the last 7 years. Many will be having cookouts and barbeques, and many outdoor activities take place. Restaurants are jam-packed this weekend and traffic is an absolute nightmare.
Today’s quote is the following:
“Who sows virtue reaps honor.”– Leonardo da Vinci
