Ok. I suck. I am a bad bad bad blogger. Everyone says “Best practices. Blog at least twice week.” Yeah, that is NOT my best practice these days. Writing for me is feast or famine. Sometimes I can see the humor and inspiration in everything. Other times, it just doesn’t happen. The truth is that right now, I just feel like everything I want to write about sounds whiny and douchey.
Like wahhh, I just cleaned up vomit and urine off the bathroom floor in the span of 10 minutes. Or why does everyone in my family refuse to put dishes in the dishwasher, like they expect little elves will miraculously arrive and take care of this for them? See what I mean. The mundane realities of life with kids can be hilarious and most days it is. But right now, I just feel vapid and sucky to complain.
The world can cast a dark pall on every day life. My minuscule issues pale in comparison to those major life altering problems facing my friends and humanity. Yes, very dark thoughts indeed. I suppose finding the humor in the mundane is the only hope for forging through daily life with some sense of hope and perchance a sparkle of joy. Laughing at reality is the only hope for surviving this drama called life.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not sitting in a dark room feeling sorry for myself. I just struggle sometimes with whether the words I put on paper are completely insensitive to the world spinning around me. Like Kim Kardashian’s shiny, voluptuous backend on the cover of Paper Magazine in the midst of one of the largest campaigns for awareness of women’s rights and anti-objectification movements since Gloria Steinem banned the bra. See, I just struggle with that level of insensitivity…
So there you have it. I am shiny big ass trying to make you laugh…
Thank you Jimmy Fallon & Brian Williams and all the very talented people that made this video. It did the trick for me today.
Inspiration comes. Cut yourself some slack. Sometimes cleaning up vomit and urine are the big issues of the day. We’re all just doing the best we can.
Thanks Kristine! Xo
