Daily Prompt: “Sparkling or Still.”
What’s your idea of a perfect day off: one during which you can quietly relax, doing nothing, or one with one fun activity lined up after the other? Tell us how you’d spend your time.
The prefect day doesn’t exist!
Pessimistic… I’m not. Realistic… Perhaps!
I recently received a comment on one of my blog post’s stating that “Expectations will only let you down when they are not met. Let the only person who can ever let you down be yourself.” (http://onlygillumkids.wordpress.com) & I must admit I agree! While someday’s we try our hardest to create/plan the most amazing day and others they just happen why set yourself up for potential failure… Of course the effort pans out in the long run however the disappointment we encounter when things don’t go our way…stings even more than anything I have ever failed at. Disappointment is terrifying! Especially if it involves people you love so dearly.
Tyler has worked so hard lately in attempt to earn money for pilot school. He took on Saturday shifts and leaves himself one day to cook, clean and prepare for the next week! I am so very proud of him as I know the struggle he is facing. Constantly being told you can’t do something while trying your absolute best can tear someone apart! With that being said the perfect day for Tyler would be running into the right financial support regardless of any other misfortune that may have occurred that day! After a long days work however… Sleeping in an a Saturday sounds pretty appealing!
Myself on the other hand, I would love to spend a quality time day with all my loved ones! I’d love to just cuddle, watch ROMANTIC movies… ( I capitalize that because Tyler only likes watching comedies while with me) and perhaps have a spa day. When I consider my long term goals I wish I could just fast forward!
What’s your take on this question?
