The opposite of hangin' on...

Is holdin' up. Ever feel like everything rests on you? Like you alone hold the world together and keep everything on an even keel?

I feel like that a lot. Sort of like a Borg queen, trying to keep all the drones from walking around in circles mumbling 'Resistance is futile, resistance is futile.'

The interesting thing about this 'weight of the world' type feeling, is that it seems to change dramatically when September arrives. It's practically an overnight thing. I go from feeling like I'm trying to hold up a giant dog, to feeling like I can float without treading water. [My ability to create interesting metaphors drops dramatically, but what the heck.]

Is there a time of year when your attitude shifts abruptly and you feel more hopeful and confident?

More hopeful and confident? Not sure, really. Christmas maybe?

Glad you're feeling good! :-)

I predict I will feel infinitely more confident and hopeful on October 19th (my half marathon is 10/18)...that or I'll be dead and won't care.

You have to stay alive at least until NJRW is over, so if the marathon kills you, please postpone your actual death until at least the 25th. Thanks. :)

You're 'demand' right I am.
