Thoughts for a Saturday morning…

Light touch my hand, in a dream of Golden Skans, from now on.
You can forget our future plans.
Night touch my hand with the turning Golden Skans,
From the night and the light, all plans are golden in your hand.

(Golden Skans – Klaxons)

I don’t think this is enough anymore. I’m not sure this is where I’m meant to be. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate my life or my job or any of that….I just a little grey. A little off.

I’m fed up of feeling stifled. Of feeling less than. I feel grey and unfulfilled and low for far too much of the time, and I know that’s not who I am. Reading back over the last couple of months on my blog, I can tell something’s up.

I am by nature a happy, hard-working, kind and creative wee soul; but that’s not really how I feel right now. And I want to feel that way. I want to be that way.

So I’m going to make some plans. Some different plans. I’m going to have a big think. I’m going to try and make sense of where I am, where I want to be, and how, exactly, I want to get there.

I have a feeling some changes may be afoot.

More soon,

PS 200 posts! Woo!
PPS Happy St Patrick’s Day to you all!

    Whenever I’m feeling blue, I hide away in my basement, put on some righteous tunes and let my blues melt away. Or sometimes I drink. (:

    I get where you are comming from, a little grey, I kinda like that one. I always say I am a little off. Grey is a better way to describe it though. I wish I could tell you a remedy for it, but, well I just work thru it, make a few small changes, and eventually the grey skies turn blue. Comming from a tough year and a half, I had to make blue, sometimes I had to paint the skies blue for myself, the grey seemed to take hold, so if you can, find a paintbrush, and figuratively, paint your sky blue. Thanks for stopping by my blog, keep reading, and keep writing, sometimes that is theraputic within itself! Congrats on 200 blogs. Happy ST PAT’S!

    If the age listed in your profile is accurate (and from your pictures, I’d figure it is), you’re about on schedule. Being dissatisfied and thinking hard and changing course are what your mid-twenties are all about. Think about things, make the changes you feel you need to…but have faith. Everything will be fine.

    I’m sure you’ve heard this enough, Claire, but sometimes ya gotta take a chance … you’ll never forgive yourself 40 years down the line if you don’t. I’m not sure what “taking a chance” would mean to you, though.

    I have definitely been there. I hope you have a good think and whatever comes of it, I can’t wait to hear about what you do next, whether it’s a huge change or something small.

    Yeah, it is one of those deals where doing the same thing is not going to bring about a different result. I’m going through a bit of that myself.

    And keep an eye on your travels! I always find that to be immensely rejuvinating. (I also find serious creative energy on the other side of a deep funk. But getting there, that’s the problem, hey.) Just booked tickets to San Francisco. Woo! And will soon pay taxes and then book tickets to Copenhagen and Stockholm (assuming I didn’t miscalculate my taxes).I’m singing it! So get yo’self to Canada right quick and feel better.Happy days,-cK

    I’m in a slump. I have been trying to come up with ways to put more life in life. Good luck on figuring out your gray period.
