Day 54: “Can I just be tired?”

I’m tired. Can I just be tired? Without piling on all sad and scared and out of time. I’m wild. Can I just be wild? Without feeling like I’m failing and I’m losing my mind.

– “Broken & Beautiful” by Kelly Clarkson

“I’m broken and it’s beautiful!”

I am tired. I am tired all the time. And I realize “being tired” is a poor excuse for not spending fifteen to twenty minutes (or more) writing a blog post. The truth is the process of pulling myself out of the “Post-Kelly Clarkson Concert Blues” has been more of a challenge than I anticipated.

I have abandoned my morning commute to the gym for an extra two hours of sleep. My food choices have become less healthy and more carb friendly. I feel like I am failing this challenge, and I have all but lost my mind.

Well, I have decided enough of this nonsense. Back on the horse. I’m broken and it’s beautiful, dammit! I just need all of you to hold me accountable. Will you help me? Please.

And remember, don’t be an asshole!
