Haiku Friday - Overwhelmed

Haiku Friday

My mind is heavy
Just another long week, ends.
Happy for some rest.

Feeling overwhelmed
Spinning out of focus now.
I just need to breathe.

Sorry for the cryptic Haiku this week. I have had a lot weighing on my mind. Most of it having to do with some friends of mine, stresses at work and the ever present house debacle with Andrew and I. We are going to look at another place tomorrow afternoon with the Realtor, its a little further north, and more in the country but it sits on almost 3 acres and the house (from the looks of the photos) is really cute! Its more of a farm house, which is what I had wanted and doesn't need as much work as the last house.

Maybe I am feeling overwhelmed lately because I feel like my youth is gone. I see my brother and his young friends with this fever almost for fun and life and I feel like I don't have time for fun anymore. I don't care to go out to bars or clubs much these days, I rarely drink more than a few glasses of wine or a couple beers with Andrew on the weekends. We don't really go out much either, maybe to dinner or the store....I am just feeling "old" and I know that sounds dumb because I am 23 going on 24, but its just strange. I look at some of my friends from college who still party and go out till all hours of the night, they drink till they black out and I am assuming it affect their jobs and personal lives. That's just not me anymore and I don't want to regress back to those days.

Maybe soon I'll share the stories of my college party days and who I was about 5 years ago. Maybe even writing it will gain some extra insight for me!

One would think in this economy with the plethora of homes on the market, it would be easier to get one than normal! I hope it happens for you soon.

About writing for insight - yes, it can definitely help, but before you put it on the blog, think! Would you be ok with your mother reading it? Your grandmother? Your future children? Your future employer?

OK, NOW who sounds old? ME! :D

Sounds like you need a hobby!

I hope all works out with the house and everything else! HUGS!

Actually, I've been feeling the opposite way lately... like, "I'm 24 for pete's sake! I need to go out and party!" Ha ha. I wish I had the willpower to make time for going out on a weekly basis, working out... me time, essentially.

As for airing it out on your blog, you can either go one way or the other: you can consider who all might read your blog, and censor yourself, or you can put some more oomph in your blog by letting your personality through. It's really up to you -- and that's what makes blogging fun.

((hugs)) Breathe and put one foot in front of the other.

Great haiku though!

When I feel overwhelmed I try to breathe and relax then count my blessings. It works for me ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I don't know, I don't think love of partying makes you young, I think it's just love for life. Even though you've been tired and stressed, I know you're still just as full of fun and craziness as you were in high school! You go on hikes, enjoy the outdoors, and are in a good relationship. Of course, having no experience with normal partying and going out, my opinion probably doesn't count for much! ;)
