I’m going through so much inner turmoil (and also external but that’s no fun to write about), and my modus opperandi is to throw The Power of the Thinking Brain at things to try to Fix Things NOW! and Make It Stop! that my poor brain finally just gives up, throws up a white flag, and says, “I got nuthin! Leave me alone! I’m going to nap! Go pester the pancreas for a while!”
I have so many things to blog about that I have nothing I can blog about. But that’s ok, because there are a lot of you out there blogging your little hearts out, and so I can just quietly nod and point you in the direction of people who have words worth reading.
If you still don’t know who Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, is, I assume you’ve been busy decorating that rock you’re living under. (I kid, I kid.) I don’t know how to describe Jenny. She’s an average wife and mother and pet owner. She used to have a normal day job in semi-normal Texas. She started a blog. She became an internationally best-selling author. She’s far from average, and thank the gods for that. She’s kind of my hero of resilience. She has the strangest sense of humor, and she can get somewhere between silly and surreal. She also has several mental health issues along with some physical.
Her last blog post was about her day with ADD. I didn’t think I have ADD but now I’m not so sure. I could relate. I was exhausted after reading this, and also wondering if she needed to take the dog outside. This post was like getting the magic ability of stepping into someone else’s brain for a while. Hello, instant empathy.
