I almost forgot about all of you. Not in a bad way. It’s just that I’ve been mentally pre-occupied since February.
Preoccupied with thoughts. Too many thoughts, like, how could my job be eliminated after 8 years of loyal service. And how could people I trusted not even fond enough to say goodbye. And then about how silly all those thoughts were because it really doesn’t matter. But it does.
It’s taken me way more time to move on than I thought, but I feel like I’m almost there. Sure, your brain says all that Stuart Smalley stuff, I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me. Blah Blah Blah.
So I wallowed, at first knowingly, then without realizing it, the highlight of my day became getting my daily bingo credits (more in 23:59:58). The house wasn’t getting any cleaner, I wasn’t getting any thinner, and no writing was getting done. Did I mention that a literary agent looked at 40 pages of mine and reacted like I was wasting her time? Yes I paid her. And she had some valid points. But I didn’t see them. All I saw was Stuart Smalley in his cardigan mouthing the word: LOSER.
This is what happens when OCD folks like me get rejected. When we make a huge emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual commitment and get crickets, or worse, not even crickets. We dwell. And dwell, and yes, dwell some more. We lose our confidence, our trust in our own ability to thrive. But the clouds are clearing, really. So no worries gang, but it’s been a long, strange trip.
Thank goodness for the spammers. Just look at all these heartfelt messages from total strangers trying to sell something. It was an absolute pleasure clearing all of these messages out of my blog’s spam folder. Because I got to read all of this great positive feedback! Of course there was a lot of talk about male erectile dysfunction and girls girls girls who want to get – well you know what. Can’t help you there Sis. Let me share a few non-pornographic tidbits with you – I’m sure you’ll agree …

Glad you are back. Missing your blogs.
Thanks Jovina! Missed being part of all this too
Very glad to see you blogging. Yes, I agree with your post here. It always amazes me that these folks even attempt to connect. But it can be entertaining. Patty, you’re talented and have so much to share. Push the doldrums aside (at least it’s spring-almost summer and the sun is shining). We, your readers have missed your wisdom, wit, and insight. Welcome back!

Thanks for trying to post a comment. Sorry, it was difficult, but this comment came through. I’m not sure what the issues are–whether it’s Word Press or internet connections. We’ve had many storms so it could be the connectivity issue.
Take care and happy blogging!
