I have been on a bit of a hiatus lately. I call it the spring slump. Spring is just one of those times of year where I cannot commit to anything at all. Whether it is cleaning or sticking to my “beauty day” I just cannot seem to commit. Even exercising is not something I feel like doing. I think I am being this way because spring’s weather cannot even commit to being right. One day spring is happy and warm the next spring is freezing and windy. I do not know if I go through this because my eyes and nose are so stuffed up from all the pollen in the air, or all the odd things I have had happen to me. Everything’s commitment level is on a break now. I cannot blame it the world is transitioning. Hell, at night I cannot even commit to sleeping because one minute I am so hot I can’t keep my covers on, the next I am freezing my ass off.
School was always an odd thing during this time of year. When school would start there would be a ton of three-day weekends, and then a whole two weeks off. Then spring semester. A few three-day weekends and then this long dull wait till spring break. The students and teachers would just be burnt out till we all could make it till spring break. Once we made through spring break not a single of us had any desire being in school, the energy would be so negative. Any person could tell how worn out the teachers and students were just from walking into a classroom.
My seizures started in the spring about seven years ago. Last year on April 8th, 2011 I had a few major seizures ending me up in the hospital. This year being alone felt right and I also wanted to celebrate not ending up in the hospital and everything being hunky-dory for the past four months (knock wood.) I think sometimes we block things out and do not realize what they are until they rear their ugly heads. This causes us to shut down for a moment. I knew this day was coming, and I think I shut down trying to block this out. My favorite dog ended up needing surgery so I stayed home and took care of him instead of going on vacation and leaving him in the care of a family member or a dog sitter. Even with my dog being sick I still wanted to go out and move on. I still wanted to see my friends and celebrate.
They all turned out being busy or had other things to do. I even went as far to call people I had met in the past year after this event had happened and just say hi plus say how I was happy having met them. It also did not work out as I had planned. I came to realize one thing. I was not entitled to going out and celebrating. You cannot always get what you want. As much as I wanted to and as much as the self-pity and anger set in, because I felt like I deserved it, it was not something in the cards. My cards were taking care of my sick dog and reflecting. Maybe me being alone was the best thing, and being alone is what I deserved. If my friends were busy, and did not want to celebrate with me it is OK, they have their own lives. If the people I have met in the past year did not care and weren’t as happy as was to have met them it is OK as well, I am not important to them. Why are they important to me? UUUMMMM, who cares, it really was just a day and so was April 8th, 2012. This lesson taught to me at the present moment in time, it is just not my time yet, and there is no entitlement no matter what you go through. The anger and self-pity was unnecessary for me putting it out in the world. I put out my bad energy for no reason, like the spring not being able to commit to one type of weather or another. It is just life and a lesson we all have to learn. I was entitled to nothing, no one is, we all just have to roll with those punches or the cards dealt (stupid clichés I know) and move on.
