“It’s about taking chances, growth and overcoming.“
Last Sunday I had an interesting conversation with dear husband on the subject of doing things that have already been done before. That day, I’d just had one of the most productive afternoon (during which I edited a blog post The challenges of being an introvert. ) and tackled other content related stuff. Naturally, I just couldn’t wait to get home and receive duly praise:
Me: “I had such a productive day today! It felt so good to finally tackle some stuff.”
Dear husband: “I am so proud of you, honey! You’ve got this! You just need to keep going.”
Naturally, with such an overwhelmingly positive reception I proceeded to overextend myself by making grand plans to take over the world in the next 48 hours🙄🤯.
Me: “Thank you honey! I am also planning on posting more often say like twice a week and maybe add some type of style content to the blog. We’ll see!”
DH: Complete silence. The sort of polite and respectful silence you’d give a dying patient making plans for the future.
Me: “Hello?!! What do you think?”
DH: “You mean like a What I wore today kind of thing? Everybody’s doing that!”
Me: “Well, would you prefer I do a what I did not wear today instead?” I said frustrated.
DH: “Well, I am sorry for interrupting your world domination plans with a dose of reality but somebody’s got to be the voice of reason in all this!”
Me: “Right now, you’re sounding more like the voice of doom!”
DH: “All am saying is you have something good here so tick with it. Don’t chase too many things at once.”
Vexed and irritated, I retrieved into an honorable silence to lick my wounds.
The man does have a point considering I’ve been known for getting overly excited and then quickly dropping into sudden desperation. BUT on the other hand…
There’s absolutely nothing new under the sun. Most everything have all been done before and done to death. Should that stop you and me from engaging in something we may possibly end up loving? Certainly not! Easier said than done, I know😅.
“Sometimes it’s difficult to be original from the get go and find the right angle from the outside, so we should get into the habit of getting involved in things that interest us and cultivate them with no expectation other than learning and having fun. Detachment from the outcome is key here.”
Last but not least, we must remember that it hasn’t been done until we’ve done it (Insert smug and overbearing emoji here).
Fun fact: Sex is one thing that has been done and done to death yet this has never stopped anyone from indulging…🤫
What about you, dear readers? Have you gone through a similar thing? How did you handle it? Please share! Gros bisoux and talk soon!🐍😘
