A Few Truths I'm Learning the Hard Way

Truth #1 - Public service and volunteerism urges in me should be squelched at all costs.

Truth #2 - Saying no is a very good thing that's difficult to do.

Truth #3 - When people know you can't say no, they treat you like a broken ATM that spits out fifties instead of twenties.

Truth #4 - Wanting to write is a sick affliction that doesn't turn off no matter how overbooked or tired of mundane life tasks you become. The damn story won't let you the hell alone!

Side note to Micah - Yes, I know where I left you. Yes, I know how close you are to getting it on in the woods with Leigha. Yes, I am familiar with blue ball terminology. Chill! You'll do the deed as soon as I can find two spare seconds to open your damn WIP! Quit bugging me!!!!!

Truth # 5 - A four day vacation in my bathtub with the sea monkey tribe to keep me company, and claiming I went on a Carnival Cruise is perfectly sane.

Back to the grind. Hope your grind is better than mine right now!

#3 is the best reason of all to learn to say "no."

Yes, I learned this the hard way...

Ava Quinn said...

Yeah, I'm using #3 to harden my heart in order to learn to do #2.

Wait, does that mean I need more potty training?

BTW - When I saw your new profile picture, I had an 80's flashback to the cult classic movie Re-Animator.

I was going to say I should give lessons, but I realized that I still suffer once in a while...relapse...hmmm, it seems like a support group is a much better idea! LOL

Good luck learning to say no.

I still suffer once in a while too! A support group is a fantastic idea!
Get out of the bathtub with the sea monkeys. They're bad for your skin!
