An Afternoon Nap

Updated on February 1, 2017

Not Tired

Feeling many emotions

Taking time to sort some of them out

This winter has been great for us

Now today on February 1st we had light snow

We know February is the shortest month

With November and December out of the way

We know if we do get snow

The sun is up higher and it's getting warmer and warmer with each day

In the past I would take a nap

From being exhausted or wiped out

This time it was emotional

The turmoil in my head

The current political situation has so many people on edge

We don't know what crazy thing is going to happen next

I am very blessed

My wife and I both have good jobs

We have all the monthly bills everyone else has

Luckily we don't have no student loans to pay back

We often feel for so many students that do

They can owe eighty thousand or more when done with college

That's a large debt over their head

Now they are out in the work force

Trying to find a job in their chosen field

I often talk to many students and their values scare me

Some don't want to work at all

Others want to start at the top

They think they have earned the right to boss people around

I don't think that's right either

They haven't put the time in

I watch our food bill grow slightly higher

We buy only the things we need and keep a low budget

If we go out to eat we look for special deals buy one get one half price

The gas prices have just hit a great price 1.99 a gallon

We drive a lot so that is a nice savings for us

It is funny how my daily life affects my writing

If I have struggles at my job I try to work through them

First mentally then physically

Looking for all possible solutions

Maybe other writers keep their writing and personal life separate

I heard how some people are different at work than at home

I like to think I am the same person

Those good qualities that I practice at home can be tested at work

Any hiccups along the way

Can be fixed and was only a temporary setback

As I look out my sliding glass door

Which was a sunny afternoon

Now is a pitch black night

The time is 7:01 here

Wishing all hubbers incredible positive thoughts and great ideas

This is what makes writing so enjoyable for me

No matter happens on in the world

I can find a piece of peace right here
