Well our anniversary month has drawn to a close. I don’t know about you, but it was a bit overwhelming for me. I’m quite ready for July to be over. Though the month was very kind to me, it still brought with it many emotions I had not expected.
Informative, got to see my awesometastic friend CB, met all sorts of awesome peeps … all around awesome. Still, I was sad to leave, nervous for what was to come and anxious about all sorts of stuff.
Harry Potter (oh just bear with me on this one)
I’d been waiting for years to see this last Harry Potter, and although it was awesome and I saw it twice cuz I’m a dork like that, it was sad. Now I have no more midnight movies to attend with my cousin. It’s the end of an era. I’m not sure that makes me happy at all. Silly I know … but that’s just me 🙂
My Book’s unexpected run in the top rankings of the Kindle Best Sellers lists.
Whereas I’m grateful and thankful for such a good run, it was hard to watch it dwindle away. You kinda get used to seeing those awesome numbers next to your book rankings and you look forward to watching your sales numbers increase, even if they are just on free books. But then it starts to dwindle and it’s super sad. First you take it personally, then you start to lose hope and then you take a deep breath and force yourself to remember that this is how it works and the best thing you can do now is get writing!
I’m happy to have a month off … super happy. But I’m also super sad to see my classes end. My writing course has been phenomenal and the professor is going to be hard to top in awesomeness. Plus I enjoyed the conversations with the class and all the laughs. What if my new classes aren’t nearly as cool. OH and what if I failed my final exam!!!
Ok, so those may seem like super petty things and pretty dumb, but it doesn’t make it any easier to cope with them. It’s hard to get all worked up and excited for things and then those things end and you just wish they wouldn’t have.
They are those moments that can’t be replaced. Like your wedding day or the birth of a child. It’s sad when those moments are gone!
So my question for you is, how do you cope with those unexpected moments of loss? When what you’ve been waiting for and looking forward to happens and then ends and you’re left just as you started … that moment where you suddenly feel like Cinderella at midnight and all the magic is gone. What do you do? Do you self talk? Do you look to others for reassurance?
Any words of advice?
