Why can't I do anything today

Updated on September 17, 2010

Ever have one of those days ?

When everything I touch seems to fall

I am definitely not on the ball

I can't seem to think straight

The littlest things become a never ending task

I curse to no one

The empty room echos my words of hostility

The more I try the more upset I get

Today is a day I should of just stayed in bed and slept the day away

I don't get it

Something brings me down and I can't control it

I am looking for something and it should be here and its not

Where did it go?

Did it just disappear

No use in trying to fight it

I have work later and I am sure I am going to be busy

Stop think wait just a minute

Lets get that old chalk eraser out when we were kids

Lets start to erase all lifes mistakes

Where do I start ?

From the beginning

No thats to much work

O.k. try the last thing you did that drove you out of your mind

What was that a minute ago

When I heard you yelling for no reason at all

Forget about it

It is not worth it

It does not matter

Let it go

I don't want to listen to you the rest of my day

Stop now and keep the peace

I gave you fear warning

How would you like it if I COMPLAINED  like you

Find a happy place

To bring you back to the love that I have

No time for that

I don't believe it for a minute

Lets eat and leave your troubles behind

So you had one bad day out of hundreds I see

Are you listening to me ?

Movig on to something better is as easy as can be

Stop trying to find ways to be mad

What is the use?

You said it makes you feel better

To hell it does

Listen to what your saying

It makes no sense

You want to be angry to make others mad too

Not today or tomorrow

I won't let you decieve yourself anymore

It is time to change your way of thinking

Think of the things you like to do

Even if you don't have the time today

Tomorrow we will make the time for something that you enjoy the most

For now you will have to settle for a few good words and a joke

      ....yes I have those days all of the time - lol lol - where some days I get do and get a lot done in a little bit of time - and then other days it takes me all day to do one thing - like get ready to go back to work!!! lol

      ...great writing here - similar to mine in the respect that it's simple and to the point and that's what makes it so effective and entertaining

      Nellieanna There is something to be said for putting your own handwriting on paper.It gives such a unique flair.I LOVE TO SEE ALL MY WRITINGS.Typing becomes so impersonal and mondane.I still write many notes and when it comes to long writings I turn to typing for convience. I appreciate the speed and making corrections that come easy.Hats off to modern technology.Thank you and have a day filled with smiles.

      I'd always used handwriting for the creative stuff and typing for business or other "tooly"chores But I like your idea of making it tedious and tiresome to write negative things. Good psychology!

      Dim Flaxenwick I started out with a story explaining how things go wrong some days.Then I went into a conversation with my wife.The whole story started because my wife was having one of those days.Then I wanted to try to talk her out of her bad mood and what ever I said wouldn't work.So I felt if I wrote about it I would feel better even if she didn't listen to my advice.Then when I finished my story she read it and understood how silly it was.Thanks for reading and caring.Nellieanna I have always found writing my problems on paper helps me come closer to a solution.Many times I will leave my problems on the paper.Then later I will write the problem again without seeing my first writing.Later I can compare or see if my problem has changed in a different angle.Sometimes I will write it three or more times and after awhile even if I haven't worked out a solution I am so done with taking the time and energy and writing about it.I give up and move on to other things.Forcing me to make a better choice.But I love your mothers technique better and I will try her way next time.I sometimes write so much my hand would cramp.I didn't want to type it.It would make it too easy.I wanted to suffer a bit.I wanted to keep my typing for creative writing and not dread the activity.Thank you for explaining and making me understand the process.Have a great day.

      One of my pet peeves is what happens to things that fall on the floor? The thing seems to go straight down by where I'm standing but I hunt everywhere in the vicinity - with a powerful flashlight - and it's no where to be found! I swear at times there surely is a hole in my floor which goes straight through the Earth to China and everything I drop goes right into that hole! LOL

      Then I find it evenutally- around the corner from the cabinet where I was standing and into the breakfast room over by the wall or door - almost as many miles away from where it was dropped as China!! haha

      Well - truthfully - "this too shall pass" is a pretty good adage when those maddening things seem to gang up on one.

      You know, when I was young I didn't much like Mother's technique for getting me past my irritations: First she'd say, "Don't be irritable" - which was irritating - LOL - Then she'd find something to distract me from the irritation, and she was good at that!

      But at the time I thought she should have helped me work through it instead. That wasn't her style. Dad probably would have done that. But looking back, I realized that those irritating things involved really weren't very logical problems with logical solutions anyway. So her idea to get my mind off of them and onto more productive or enjoyable things was really very wise.

      So now when I occasionally run into a wall of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, if it doesn't yield with a few honest efforts, I lay it aside for right then. It gives it time either to resolve itself, vanish into the ether from whence it came or show a sensible path through it. Most often - quite honestly - it just vanishes, like "POOF" - because when one is in that frame of mind, one manufactures or expands upon obstacles or at least builds the proverbial mountains out of molehills. After looking elsewhere - maybe sleeping on it - they're back to molehills. May have moles in them needing to be chased off, but not unmoveable mouontains.

      And writing about it - that's a wonderful thing to do!! For me, writing is therapeutic. Nice thing is you can read back and see how blown out of proportion it may have been! And find lessons to help next time.

      Excellent hub, Dream On. I really like it!
