While we throw ourselves into our work, our family, our day to day routine, we could suggest that by keeping busy we are ‘enthusiastic,’ knowing that the quicker we can get through the day, the quicker we can sit down and relax with a ‘savvy B’ or a beer. And, whilst I would love to sit down and have a chin-wag with a friend over a bevvy, it’s not going to happen tonight, as I have one son who has to play at a hockey match at 6.30pm.
So whilst I don’t feel too enthusiastic, I will say that I somehow have done a lot of things this week which show enthusiasm. I have read two novels, written up 23 properties, sent out a stack of ebooks for excited readers wanting to review “On the Road to the Best Orgasm Ever,” I have had something on every night this week with my boys – from drama classes, to hockey practice, basketball practice and even a school meeting about next year. I have been to bed early, and woken up way too early (this morning was 4.30am) and have even had an enthusiastic cry or two. So while there is no real positive enthusiasm behind it, there’s enthusiasm just to make things happen and get things done.
And even if we are tired and feel that it’s all relentless by the time Friday night comes along, we should pat ourselves on the back for getting everything we need done. A single parent’s life never stops, and somehow we need to maintain our enthusiasm to just keep going. Happy Friday! 🙂
