Blah (A poem for those feeling... well exactly like that)

This poem is for anyone feeling blah, but in particular all self-employed mums (or dads) who have the occasional crisis of confidence and want to jack it all in. I'm certain I won't be Poet Laureate anytime soon but here it is nonetheless:

Blah

There are times when one feels blah.
It could be caused by an ill-fitting bra.
Or not ticking your to do list
Letting things get missed
Or simple feeling decidedly un-hoorah.

There are times when confidence takes a hit
And you feel like you just want to quit
You wonder why you bother
Why not simply be a mother
And give this work lark up for a bit.

Today is one of those days
When I'd like work to simply go away
But as an self employed bod
There's no-one else to do the job
So there's only one thing left to say:

You are good at what you do
Somehow you'll make it through.
So have a glass of wine
Tomorrow you'll feel fine
And sod everything that's gone to poo.

That's the spirit girlie. Don't give up. Drink more wine, learn more knots. All will be well and less blah tomorrow.

I would like work to go away today - well, this week - too. Am still at my desk at 11.30pm and likely to be for at least another hour or two.

Oh I love this! I have had 'one of those days' and this summarises my feelings perfectly!

God that's exactly the feelings I had lately! I am slowly getting back on the saddle of enthusiasm for what I do because I love what I do, but god there are days when I feel "why can't just be happy to be just a mum?"
Thanks for this!

I think I am going to have to frame this and hang it over my desk. (might have to change the mother bit though - not so applicable to me).

Pity the Luareateship's just been taken, eh? Still, I'm backing you in ten years time!

Home Office Mum said...

Katyboo - my knots are pants. Still

Tasha - thanks for the link on your blog. Hope your week is getting better

Nicola and Perfectly Happy Mum - Glad I'm not alone

Welsh - I can write you your own version if you like. Involving dogs, rain and houses.

The Dotterel - Thanks. I wouldn't spend any money down at Betfair though
