For the last several weeks I’ve been enjoying recounting humorous moments in my life as my little contribution to Jenny’s Make Me Laugh Monday posts.
Tonight, however, I have to report I’m experiencing *Funny Fail*. Life has me a little bit down. Factoring in that it’s that time of the month and my emotions tend to be slightly out of whack anyway I’m not terribly worried. [Note to self: I just wrote “I’m terribly worried” and had to go back and add the “not.” Freudian slip?]
I popped over to Jenny’s site to see if she’d posted something funny to inspire me. I found this wonderful piece that resonated perfectly with my state of mind. She talks about how sweet the downhill is on a run after tackling the uphill and how that’s a metaphor for life. She’s right. She also says it better and it’s worth reading.
I feel like I’m in the midst of what is likely to be a REALLY long uphill climb (metaphorically and job-related) and now thanks to Jenny I’ll remember how freeing it will be to come flying down the other side (I’m on my bike in my metaphor).
Speaking of bikes, one of the things that kind of bummed me out this weekend was missing out on Sarah’s Birthday Bike Ride in Sonoma County. I declared myself not in good enough biking shape to keep up with Sarah and her fast friends. But I am thrilled to see that they had a great day and she posted bunches of fabulous photos.
Plus now that I’ve signed up for the Livestrong Challenge Century Ride I’ll be begging Sarah to take me on lots of training rides. Just as soon as I get anywhere near her level.
Stay tuned for the return of happy Kathleen. She’s in there, just a little overwhelmed by circumstances.
