If You're Looking for Inspiration, You've Found the Wrong Blog Today

Did you ever have one of those days where you get up, shower, get dressed, put on your makeup, start blow-drying your hair, and then realize you hadn't rinsed your hair after putting in the conditioner?  Then you go to work, telling yourself, "I'm DEEP-CONDITIONING today," and forget your phone?

Yeah, that's how my whole month is going.

I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, but I'm having a rough go of it recently.  I'm tired, all I do is work, and I haven't been able to go for a run in two weeks because I'm working 12-hour days.  I just keep telling myself to hang in there, these things will work themselves out eventually, all I need to do is keep at it.

Maybe by tonight I'll find that elusive "second wind" and feel more hopeful, but today I am In The Bell Jar, Man.

So yes, if you're looking for inspiration, you've come to the WRONG place today.  Sorry.  I've got no inspiration today, for myself or anyone else, but I'm trying to stay strong, focus, and just keep moving forward.  Treating Life and Work like a Really Long Training Run today.

These pictures make me feel a little better, and remind me who I am.  I'm off to work now.  
Have a great day?
