I saw something online on one of the social networks and it made me so mad! I got angry and switched off my device. I refused to use it. I should have said something and put the person straight. I didn’t. I hid. I didn’t hide, I just didn’t want all the wrong attention for all the wrong reasons. You see people in a different light. Then you begin to delete them, unfriend them. Not because you do not like them. Not because they are your friend. No. They are not your friends. Not real trust worthy good supportive friends. They are just acquaintances. People you know in the street. People who recognise your face yet want to be nosy about your personal life. Friends are people, who have the same way of thinking as you. Same level of thinking and don’t upset what you believe in. Why didn’t I break the silence and speak out. Previously, when I have, people get angry and start making everyone around them aggravated. Why don’t people understand anything? Why compare something to something else, which are two separate things all together?!
If someone asked you ‘Do you have the time?” What would you say? I would uncover my sleeve on my left wrist and view my watch and tell the stranger the time. I guess that is automatic. That is not what I am trying to say. Time. Who has the time for anything? Time is wasting away. As I blog. As you read. As I write. Time is running out. Eek! I hear you cry. Yes. I nod.
The last few weeks have been really hectic for me. I glance at my diary and calender and every day something is happening. Events. So busy. I try to monitor my time and work around it. It is hard. I am trying to learn my theory for my driving lessons, so I can book my driving test and be on my way to support my career in retail. As well as that, I am trying to have the time, for my husband, so he does not feel neglected. I am constantly working around the clock, working here, working there, babysitting, writing my column, cooking, domestic cleaning. You know the drill. So hectic. Then there are family events, birthday do’s, party invites, to reply to. Everyone expects you to be there. Friends trying to meet up and they don’t understand why you are so busy.
That is part of life.
Some days after an incredible long shift at work, where I have started at 6am one morning and finished work the night before at 10pm, I go home to bed and sleep it off. And before you know it, the whole day has gone.
