no more mondays.

No… I haven’t found the antidote to the dreaded day of the week we call Monday. Sorry if I got your hopes up.

This is about Moody Monday. (And yes, I do realize I’m posting this on a Thursday…)

I’ve decided that after 15 installments, Moody Monday is over. Don’t celebrate just yet… I’m sure you’ll continue to be subjected to my moody rants and disturbing stream-of-consciousness mind dumps. Sorry. But I’ve come to realize that Moody Monday is making me feel terrible. I don’t think it’s making my mood worse per se, but I think it’s drawing too much attention to it. For you, I’m sure. But definitely for me.

One of my biggest demons is my overdeveloped ability to think about things. All things. Excessively. In circles. Analyzing and regretting. Punishing myself. My brain also has this annoying habit of snowballing. I think about one thing… then I overthink it… then a billion other things that worry me join the party.

I think what I really need is to get my mind off things… because I have trouble doing that. But this weekly mood check thing is doing the opposite.

I’m calling it. Time of death: now

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I’m all for you killing it if it aggravates your mindset. Totally believe in the power of words and the weight we give them. Kill it and kill it dead. No need to replace it and even if you do, replace with something that makes you smile…😊

  3. I see this as a positive step, I hope you do too. Just don’t bottle it all up. Do share the angst because it really does help.
    Hugs, as always.

    A good bottle of single malt will do it.

  6. Cutting things out that make you feel worse is a good idea….though I’ll miss that post. Basically I always seemed to agree, and generally made me laugh or say, ” YES!!! She’s so right!”. Was that selfish? Felt a little selfish. 😃😃

    • I’m sure you’ll still get plenty of my messed up head… and my moody junk. You, of all people, know that I can’t seem to shut up. I probably should… but that’s not likely to happen. I just think that I will be better off posting my moody stuff when I need to get it out… rather than forcing myself to think about how I feel at a specific time.

      I’m glad you felt that way about what I had to say. I don’t think it’s selfish of you at all. It makes me feel good that you liked those posts. I kind of felt from the start that it was really self-centered and self-indulgent… I wasn’t sure if I ever should have started it in the first place…

    I get this completely. Sometimes even when I feel like I need to vent or get things off my chest it makes me feel worse. Like sounding it out loud makes it more real. And like you said, thinking about one thing can lead to another and another…. So I think you are right to reserve those posts for when you really feel like writing it all out and not forcing those things to the surface every week. We’re with you, Sandra!

    In a completely unrelated vein, Beach is trying to convince me to join one of his photo challenges as I know he’s done with you. I’m thinking about doing one of them after the new year and calling it Foto Friday or something like that. Do it with me!

    Not saying anything new here: but if it’s not making you happy, kick it to the curb!
