Judging by the total lack of comments on yesterday's post, I conclude that spewing venom on blogland is not a favorite. That's okay--I just needed to get the poison out.
It is amazing how much better you feel after "spewing." Now, ordinarily, I'm a nice person. I look for the good in others, keep my rude comments (mostly) to myself, am polite and have fine manners. Most of the time I am happy, I get along with everyone, and prefer keeping the peace to arguing. It's the water sign in me(I'm a Pisces, in case you wanted to know).
However I did learn a lesson after my marriage broke up 8 yrs. ago. Keeping the peace--meaning keeping your mouth shut most of the time--isn't always the best decision. Letting anger or grief or whatever negative emotion you may have simmer away inside eats away at you--like maggots--from the inside out. Every once in a while you need to let it out (in a civilized fashion of course, no going postal, no rape and pillage please) or you will be miserable.
So I allow myself to vent when I need to and I've been much more content ever since. The venting satisfies the fire sign in me (My rising sign is Aries--yikes!), and enables me to deal with all the daily "stuff" more effectively.
Anyhoo, I appreciate the venting opportunity yesterday (or, as Son likes to call it "Turning Into Exorcist Lady"). And now, back to our regularly scheduled program:
It's Friday! Friday Friday Friday!! The work week is winding down and a great majority of the planet goes out and parties. Me? Friday night is unwinding time. After Son and I get home from Tae Kwon Do, we just relax. I might have a drink, he slides into XBox Nirvana, or maybe we watch a movie and eat junk food. Whatever it is, it's usually good.
What do you do on Friday nights? How do you unwind?
