30 Blogs of November: Day 14

If life is a motorway, then I am stuck in a never-ending traffic jam while everyone else is moving forward at various speeds.

You might be able to tell that I’m not in the most positive mood today. It did start well enough. I guess every now and again, the amount of stuff you see and hear of people you know who are moving away, having a baby or getting engaged takes its toll on you a bit. Sure you’re happy for them, but you then realise that in some ways you haven’t progressed any further from where you were a year or two ago. In some ways, you may even stepped back. We carry on, work our arses off and make the best of the situation we’re in, but it doesn’t feel like we’re getting anywhere.

Maybe I should stop looking at Facebook, shut down my account. I have thought about it a number of times in the past, then decided against it as I still really wanted to stay in touch with the majority of those I know on there. The plus side is that I don’t have many people on it so my Facebook timeline isn’t heaving with every little detail of people’s lives mixed with the odd inspirational quote and stupid meme. It’s all too easy to get caught up in what others are doing that you don’t focus on what you’re doing and what you’re capable of doing.

I’m straying into self-help territory, so I think I had better end this blog now.

    Good luck, Lynsey!

    I know the feeling you describe. Sometimes I think we can take two steps forward, but then three steps back, whether that be personally or professionally.

    Clichéd though it may sound, there’s always an opportunity to bounce back for as long as we live. I intend to. I ***know*** you can, too. It may not feel like that today, tomorrow or even next week, but in time you can.

    Best wishes.

      Sometime we all will. Until then, we carry on. Thanks for the comment! 🙂

    Even if you feel you haven’t progressed in the last year or two, you probably have. And you are still here to see another day, so that’s a good thing. What happens if that person that gets a promotion gets fired? Or the couple getting married calls it off? They are back to square one too 🙂
