A friend of mine has recently moved back home close to where I live and has got a two day job near where I work. I have received a few texts from her moaning about the journey and disbelief that I’ve managed to do it for so long. I’m actually pleased to hear someone say what a struggle it is, vindicating my years of slumping into my train seat and sleeping and turning down week night invites so I can crawl into bed. It’s official – commuting is tiring and it SUCKS.
For now I’m putting up with it because I have a good job with no time to find something new and no plans to move into London, I’d rather stay in Surrey thanks. Plus as you know I’m working on making my fantasy job of being an author come true and that takes up all my spare time and spare brain capacity. But it has got me wondering about the future and how long I can keep slogging it out Monday to Friday. It has been a challenging week all round and that makes me feel even more down about my situation and a bit anxious about what’s going to happen in the future.
But I’m trying to stay positive and focus on my goals and not let life get me down to much because there’s no easy path for me to take just yet and I know compared to so many people around the world I’m really blessed with what I have.
How do you stay positive when you’re having a bad week?
