I’m trying something new today thanks to Kenya at http://www.bloglovin.com/blogs/stories-via-kenyagjohnsoncom-4837621?post=4137243067&group=0&frame_type=a&context=&context_ids=&blog=4837621&frame=1 &click=0&user=0&viewer=true who has turned me onto Fadra’s stream of consciousness (SOC) linkup. So here goes, 5 minutes of not editing my thoughts.

It’s Sunday morning and I’m in my bedroom listening to Ed Sheeran and avoiding my kids. Wrong? Eh, I’m not sure. They are old enough to take care of themselves and I am still drained from last night.

I don’t feel like going out there and arguing over the fact that I took my 15 yr. old’s phone away last night because she was rude and disrespectful. I don’t feel like asking my other daughter if she’s done anything about the scholarships she need to be applying for. It’s not a fun way to wake up with all of this weighing on me.

My resolution this year was to choose happy and I am trying to remain optimistic, but it gets tough on days like this. Oh well times almost up. Deep breaths and paste a smile on my face, here I go. I can let it go, right? Time!

This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. This is writing in the raw.
  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
  • Link your new posts to All Things Fadra (feel free to use her SOC Sunday graphic).

  1. What a surprise! When I saw your post popped up in my e-mail with that title I just knew you were participating. Didn’t that feel good? I know it didn’t make the problem go away but it should have at least made you feel better about starting your day. Have a wonderful one Bridget.

    I remember squirreling away, not coming out, because I just didn’t want the lovely mood I felt to be (spoiled?) changed by influences beyond my bedroom door! I like your resolution; it’s mine too.

    I know that need to exhale, especially first thing in the morning. I like the start the day with a clean slate and sometimes getting it all out in a brain dump helps with that. Thanks for joining in and I hope you stop back next Sunday!
