You know that feeling I’m talking about. It’s that same feeling you got every Sunday as a kid when you realized you had to go back to school. The post Weekend/Holiday blues. The dread. The anxiety. And sometimes, even the sadness! Why can’t weekends last 4 days instead of 2 right?! Well, unless you’re a Billionaire making your own schedule- most of us have to return to back to work every Monday.
I was feeling it hardcore last night as I went to sleep. It was Christmas, and I was home in Chicago. I had been home for the past 4 days spending time with my family that I haven’t been able to see in a long time. My sister flew in from Colorado and we were all together for the first time since the Summer. It was perfect. I had to savor every single second that I got at home. However, like most great things, it had to come to an end. I was required to be back to work bright and early this morning. I usually try and drive back to Kokomo the night before to make it easier on myself. However, because yesterday was Christmas- I told myself that I was going to stay the full night and drive back this morning.
I woke my happy butt up at 3:30AM Chicago time and started getting ready for the day. I’m just going to be real with you all- I may sound like I have it all together on the radio, but that’s just not life! And this morning, I did not want to drive back. I was tired. And homesick. Even though I was still at home. Do you ever feel that?
Well, I’m an adult and adults have to do things they don’t want to do sometimes. Of course when I got here I was perfectly fine to go about my day, but getting here took a little work. For me, to pump myself up for the day ahead, I rely HEAVILY on music. There’s some great music out right now. My ultimate pump up song lately has got to be “High Hopes” by Panic At The Disco! Have you heard it?! We play it here on Z! (Shameless plug!) IT’S. SO. GOOD! It’s the perfect mix of motivational lyrics and a catchy beat. Today- This was my song. Reminding me to keep my hopes high and BELIEVING that I have something great to offer the world! Listen to this today and believe the words! (Also coffee helps me a lot)
