Please Stop the World; I'm Getting Dizzy.

The ride has become tedious.  I am tired of the same old same old. Same old.......Same......old. 

Have you ever been on an amusement park ride that was whipping you around too much? that was threatening to make you lose your lunch and if it didn't stop soon you couldn't be held accountable for what happened next?

This isn't like that.

Instead, it is like an old-fashioned record player.  The music has stopped, and yet the record goes around and around and around and around, with nothing to commend it except the monotonous blip........blip........blip as it gets to the end with nowhere else to go.

And it is my own fault.  I am not making good use of my precious gift of time.  I don't feel needed.  I don't feel productive.  I don't....anything.  blip.......blip.......blip.

Not to worry, your creative side will take over.

I'm sorry that you are not feeling productive or needed. :-(

I can relate to feeling like you are spinning. And btw, I like the record metaphor much better than the "I'm spinning my wheels!', like I usually say. Now when I'm feeling that way, I'm hoping Dead or Alive's 'Spin Me Round' pops into my head.

I think you're awesome and I hope the "funk" passes and you are feeling encouraged and spunky again.

I'm sorry you don't feel needed anymore. This is just another chapter in your is your time!!! You can work on your talents, go to lunch,, perfect your golf game and just enjoy yourself. Call me some time and we can have lunch.

Ah, the funk... What a great analogy! I hope this time passes quickly for you. You are such a treasure in my life!
